After signing Donny van de Beek, Man United attention turns elsewhere, with Sergio Reguilon now on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s radar…
The story comes from AS, who, in their title, claim United have tabled an offer for the left-back. They go on to claim that the offer to the 23-year-old would be ‘tempting’ because Reguilon would be ‘practically assured’ a starting place at Old Trafford.
Apparently, the ‘interesting offer’ from United landed on Real Madrid’s table over the last few days, with the 20-time Premier League champions looking to sign Reguilon on a permanent basis.
AS Also add that United are ‘looking to strengthen’ in the left-back position, despite having both Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams on the books.
Understandably, Reguilon is keen to continue his development, though he does have his heart set on returning to Real Madrid at some point. With that in mind, Los Blancos may well deal for around £25m – though the transfer would include a buy-back clause…
United face competition for Reguilon, with Sevilla keen to take him on loan for another year, while Juventus are also keen. AS stress that the Red Devils are currently ‘best-placed’ to sign the emerging Spaniard. That’s because they’d be able to offer a long-term deal, while the player is ‘keeping his options open’.
Would Reguilon be a good signing?
Simply put, yes. He’d be a considerable upgrade in the left-back position. Anyone who watched United take on Sevilla in the Europa League will know all about this young man, as he was excellent against us.
We’re talking about someone who’ll bomb up and down that left-flank all game, while consistently delivering quality balls into the box.
At around £25million it would be an absolute steal, though if that buy-back clause claim is genuine, I’d be concerned Reguilon would only be here for a year or two.
It’d also mean United would have to sell someone on. There wouldn’t be enough room for Reguilon, Shaw and Williams. If that was the case, it’d probably be Shaw on the way out – though he has been better recently.
It’s reassuring to see United looking at players who fit the bill perfectly, though. After signing Van de Beek, adding Reguilon and a winger would show we really mean business.
