The right-back was close to leaving Spurs 18 months ago, but is now one of the most in-demand talents in the world
Kieran Trippier is a surprise £50million target for Real Madrid and a host of other European giants.
Sources claim the defender is well aware of Real’s interest after his stunning performances for England at the World Cup.
Deployed as a right wing-back by Gareth Southgate, the 27-year-old shone in Russia and scored his first international goal in the semi-final defeat to Croatia.
According to The Sun, the reigning Champions League holders are just one of many top European sides interested in the former Manchester City man.
His set-pieces at the tournament were consistently exceptional as he created 24 chances – more than any other player in Russia.
Trippier was signed by Mauricio Pochettino for just £3.5 million in 2015 after a string of impressive performances for Burnley.
He signed a new, five-year deal just last summer and it is understood Spurs would resist any bid for their star man.
Should a bid of £50million come in for the right-back, it would stand as a record for an English player.
