Real Madrid offer Man Utd chance to sign £18m star full-back

Manchester United could have the opportunity to sign Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid, according to reports.

Reguilon enjoyed a successful campaign on loan at Sevilla in 2019-20, culminating in winning the Europa League. He played against Man Utd in the semi-final.

However, there is no space for him back at Real Madrid, because Zinedine Zidane prefers Marcelo and Ferland Mendy.

Therefore, Reguilon is likely to leave the club during this transfer window – potentially for as little as £18m. In turn, that will help Madrid raise funds for any signings they want to make.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Madrid have now offered Reguilon to Manchester United.

Chelsea had been considering a move for Reguilon as a potential alternative target to Ben Chilwell. But having completed the deal for the England international, the Blues no longer need him.

Hence, United could have an opportunity to sign the 23-year-old. However, they are yet to decide if they want him or not.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current options at left-back are Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams. Reguilon would provide tougher competition for the duo.

Reguilon is currently on international duty with Spain, for whom he is yet to make a senior appearance.

Reports last month suggested that Madrid would want to include a buyback clause in any deal to sell Reguilon.


United still want Sancho

Meanwhile, United continue to prioritise a big money move for Jadon Sancho. However, their interest in Jack Grealish has coolled due to Aston Villa’s demands.

Indeed, they have already signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax to strengthen their midfield instead.

Sancho remains firmly on their radar though as they plot to reinforce their attack. And the winger has admitted he does not mind the constant transfer speculation.
