“For me personally, it has been a great experience, a different culture, working with Simeone.
“I am absolutely delighted to have won the league title. There is no better coach to improve than Simeone.”
Trippier hails from Greater Manchester, however, and the opportunity to join Solskjaer’s squad will present him with the chance to move home.
The United boss is certainly keen on making additions to the team this summer, having recently discussed his view on the upcoming transfer window.
“We are second best, but too far behind to threaten those who won. Then we have to strengthen ourselves,” Solskjaer told Norwegian outlet TV.
“Of course, something will happen in the transition window. The world has become very different than 15-16 months ago, but we have to make some moves on the transfer window, but also with the team.
“It is never possible to sit back. You are constantly looking for reinforcements. Football is dynamic, so unexpected things can happen such as injuries, illness, something familiar or that someone wants to move.”
