Former Manchester United full-back Fabio da Silva urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier.

Former Manchester United full-back Fabio da Silva has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign England international Kieran Trippier this summer.

The Red Devils are understood to be interested in recruiting a right-back and have previously been linked with the Atletico Madrid defender.

Fabio, who spent six years at Old Trafford between 2008 an 2014, believes that the signing of Trippier could even bring the best out of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

"If you see how Luke Shaw is doing this season, I think it's the best season he's been having for so long at Man United," Fabio told the Manchester Evening News.

"Alex Telles has made him improve, someone to say, 'if you're not playing well, if you're not concentrating, working hard, you're going to lose your place'.

"This definitely makes you play better, so for Wan-Bissaka if they bring in a good right-back, you're going to help him to improve, 100%. If you play every game, you have no competition and you can start to get in a comfort zone, it's not good for you."

Trippier, who spent over ten years with the academy at Manchester City, has made 20 appearances in all competitions for the La Liga leaders this season, providing five assists.
