Manchester United have to weigh up whether to move for a left-back before the transfer window closes.
Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams give United options, but is there an opportunity to improve?
One player United have been linked to is Spanish defender Sergio Reguilon, who starred against us in Sevilla’s Europa League semi-final win.
He provided the assist for Suso’s goal with a well placed cross, while defending well to limit Mason Greenwood’s attacking influence on the game.
Marca report Real Madrid, who loaned him to Sevilla, are seeking just £22 million for Reguilon, amid their own need to raise funds.
A bargain price
This asking price for the 23-year-old almost makes him too good to pass up.
Reguilon scored three goals and provided five assists last season for Sevilla, which is more than Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams contributed between them.
The Spaniard is an attack minded player who would give United a little more going forward. At £22 million, he is worth talking a chance on.

It is a fee which once again highlights the value of looking abroad for players compared to the hyper-inflated English market.
Chelsea just paid £50 million for Ben Chilwell, who himself offered three goals and three assists last season.
This is not necessarily a point to say Chelsea overpaid for Chilwell, but simply that United could massively under-pay to land Reguilon, and this makes him an attractive proposition.
The Times reported Aston Villa wanted £80 million for Jack Grealish, a player who compared to Van de Beek, lacks Champions League experience.
In a financial climate where United need to try and be sensible, it makes sense for United to try and pursue these types of deals.
Sancho a special case
Debate over Jadon Sancho’s £108 million price is one of the reasons United are yet to pay up.
As an English player, his price is inflated, but the problem for United is that there are a lack of likely options that the club will move for.
They are out there though. Manchester City paid just £20 million to sign exciting winger Ferran Torres from Valencia. This will likely end up looking like a very shrewd deal.
