On Tuesday evening, Bayern returned with a bid worth in the region of €15million [£12.8m]. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano posted on X: "FC Bayern have sent new formal bid to Newcastle for Kieran Trippier, as @kerry_hau @plettigoal called.

"Understand new proposal has been sent for permanent transfer — in the region of €15m fee. Newcastle insisted again yesterday on Trippier staying, Bayern trying again."

But as per multiple sources, the offer was swiftly rejected. Newcastle, so far, have been in consistent in their message that the England international is not for sale.

The 33-year-old joined United from Atletico Madrid in January 2022 and has played an instrumental role in the success that has followed. Last season, he started every Premier League game as United qualified for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

Trippier was rewarded with a new contract last year - extending his stay on Tyneside until 2025 - but there has been some concern surrounding his future after Newcastle CEO Darren Eales recently admitted every player has a price as the club looks to comply with Premier League Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

Not only Trippier but both Callum Wilson and Miguel Almiron have also been the subject of transfer speculation. AC Milan and Atletico Madrid have asked about Wilson while Almiron is attracting interest from Saudi Pro League clubs Al Shabab and Al Ahli.
