SunSport exclusively revealed last week that Trippier, 30, has told his England team-mates that he'd like to return to the Premier League with Man United.
But Atletico may try and flog him elsewhere, against his wishes.
According to Marca, Diego Simeone's side could try and use Trippier in a deal with Arsenal, in which Hector Bellerin would move the other way.
Bellerin, 26, is one of a number of senior figures in North London that could be flogged this summer.
Atletico sporting director Andrea Berta is a fan of the Spanish international.
And Bellerin himself is believed to be open to a return to Spain.
Trippier, meanwhile, has enjoyed his two years in the Spanish capital, winning the LaLiga title with Atletico last season.
But he would like to return to England this summer, with a move to be near his family in the North West particularly preferable.

United want to recruit him this summer, in order to provide a more attacking alternative to Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
In fact, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering experimenting with Wan-Bissaka as a centre-back.
This would mirror how Gareth Southgate has used Kyle Walker for England at times.
United believe they can sign Trippier for a fee in the region of £15-20m.
