Tottenham now reportedly ready to sanction £40million transfer

According to reports, Kyle Walker is now free to leave Tottenham following the completion of a new long-term  deal by Kieran Tripper. Trippier’s new deal sees him earn £65,000 a week and will also likely see him become a first team regular within the squad.

Walker has reportedly become unhappy at the club after manager Mauricio Pochettino opted to select Trippier over him during the final weeks of last season.

He has since been heavily linked with a move to big spending Manchester City. Though Manchester United were also thought to be interested, City are said to be the only team that are willing to match Spurs £40 million asking price.

City boss Pep Guardiola is determined to bring in new quality defensive recruits this summer and is reported to be eyeing Walker as well as veteran Brazilian Dani Alves.

Alves has been released by Uefa Champions League finalists Juventus and should he join City, he will reunite with Guardiola, who he worked with at Barcelona.
