Man Utd studying cheaper alternative to Kieran Trippier with amazing stats

James-Tavernier Rangers celebration Ibrox May 2021

Manchester United and Arsenal are looking at Rangers skipper James Tavernier and could make a summer move, according to a report.

Bradford-born Tavernier had a season to remember for the Gers helping them win their first SPFL title for 10 years. The 29-year-old right-back was a big part of that title success with 46 appearances in all competitions.

His attacking exploits also saw him bag 19 goals, 10 of which were penalties, while he also grabbed an amazing 16 assists.

Those figures have been divulged by a number of clubs and 90min claim United, Arsenal, Brighton and Norwich are “taking an interest” in the player.

Tavernier’s form saw him handed a new three-year contract at Ibrox in April.

“I am delighted to extend my contract at this magnificent club. As soon as I arrived six years ago, I soon realised how massive this club is.

“It isn’t a club really – it’s an institution,” said Tavernier, who is understood to be happy at Ibrox and not looking to move on.

His future though may be out of his own hands. Especially with Rangers struggling financially in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In November Rangers announced a £15.9m loss up to 30 June. That was an increase of £4.3m from the previous year, amid the “economic storm”.
