Kieran Trippier could receive stunning bonus that Premier League players rarely get if he joins Bayern Munich

Trippier could cash-in if he joins Bayern.

Kieran Trippier could receive an incredible bonus rarely seen in the Premier League if he swaps Newcastle United for Bayern Munich.

Trippier has been an ever-present fixture in Eddie Howe's team since Newcastle signed him from Atletico Madrid in January 2022.

The England star spent much of his career at Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur, before spending two-and-a-half years in Spain, where he helped Atletico win La Liga in 2021.

Newcastle paid £12 million to bring Trippier back to the Premier League, and before long he was appointed vice-captain of the club. However, despite extending his contract until 2025 last year, the full-back could be about to leave the club.

That's because Bayern Munich want to sign the 33-year-old full-back, following their failed attempt to prise Kyle Walker away from Manchester City last summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle have already rejected a loan approach and a 'lowball' permanent offer from the Bundesliga giants, who are looking to strengthen after falling seven points behind table toppers Bayer Leverkusen.

Thomas Tuchel has already recruited Englishman Eric Dier this month, and if Trippier ends up reuniting with him and fellow former Tottenham teammate Harry Kane, then he could receive a rare bonus.

Player salaries at German clubs - even Bayern - are nowhere near as high as they are at top Premier League sides, but many Bundesliga sides pay bonuses between £6,000 and £18,000 per point won. If you play for a successful team like Bayern, those bonuses can tot up pretty quickly.

Trippier might not be the only first-team star to leave Newcastle this month, provided substantial offers are brought to the table.

On Monday it was reported that the Magpies and Saudi Pro League side Al-Shabab have reached a provisional agreement on the transfer of Miguel Almiron.

Meanwhile, striker Callum Wilson is the subject of interest from AC Milan, although the club insist that the 31-year-old will not leave St James' Park this month.

Newcastle could be forced to sell valuable assets for profit in order to avoid breaking the Premier League's profit and sustainability rules.
