Manchester United-linked Kieran Trippier ‘in talks’ to buy a house for current Manchester City star Raheem Sterling, sparking transfer rumors
The 30-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to rival Manchester United in recent weeks, and the latest information from a British newspaper will almost certainly add fuel to the blaze.

The latest information comes from an exclusive report from The Sun, which provides details on Saturday night.

According to a exclusive report from the Sun, current Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier – who is apparently destined for Manchester United – is in talks to buy a £ 3million mansion from England teammate Raheem Sterling.
The Sun reveals that Sterling purchased the property, which includes five acres of land and a wildlife pond, in 2017. The five bedroom home is located in a ‘Quiet Cheshire hamlet near Knutsford and surrounded by farmland‘, reveals the newspaper.
The report also cites a source familiar with the situation, who explains, “Kieran [Trippier] wants to return to UK from Spain and if deal with Old Trafford is done he will have to act quickly. “
“He and Raheem talked about the property. If Raheem leaves at the same time, it makes perfect sense to sell him back quickly – and privately – to Kieran.. “

In recent weeks, Raheem Sterling has been heavily linked with a move away from the Etihad stadium, as Manchester City seek funding for a double hit for Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.
However, the most likely scenario right now is that Raheem Sterling will put a contract extension on paper this summer, and the property situation – if it comes to pass – will only leave Sterling moving into a different property and more. great in the area.
