Kieran Trippier’s Bayern Munich transfer OFF after German giants refuse to meet Newcastle price tag

The Magpies rejected Bayern’s £12.8million bid for the England right-back on Tuesday.

And at present the Bavarians are not expected to come back with an improved offer for the 33-year-old.

While not agitating for a move, it is believed that Trippier was keen on linking up with former Tottenham pals Harry Kane and Eric Dier in the Bundesliga.

Newcastle have insisted they do not want to sell their talisman but a bid north of £15m could have been too good to turn down for a player turning 34 this year.

The Geordies need to sell to buy to navigate Financial Fair Play rules but boss Eddie Howe was desperate to keep Trippier.

He has been instrumental in transforming the Tynesiders’ fortunes since arriving for £12m in January 2022.

And while his form dropped off a cliff during December having played a pivotal role in Newcastle qualifying for the Champions League last summer, Howe believes he still has a couple of seasons left in him.
