Sergio Reguilon completed his move to Manchester United last Friday on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur following a failed attempt to sign Marc Cucurella from Chelsea.

The Spanish left-back, formerly of Real Madrid before completing a move to Sevilla on loan, spoke very excitedly about the move to Old Trafford and the honour of wearing the United shirt.

The Spaniard was on the bench for United in their 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates but could well feature once the international break is over.

He has been speaking to theUnited website about the move to Old Trafford and has cited two former teammates who have helped him with the adaptation to life in Manchester.

‘When I arrived, they were the first to welcome me’

Speaking to the United website, Reguilon has said both Casemiro and Raphael Varane, former teammates of Reguilon, were one of the first to speak to him and help him settle in England.

When I arrived, they were there to welcome me,” an excited Reguilon said in his first public interview as a United player. “They have given me [some help with] the houses and also life in Manchester.

“For me, I knew many players before, like Bruno [Fernandes] and [Andre] Onana, so I know some people here already.”

Reguilon’s fast adaptation to life in Manchester could well help him nail down a first-team spot under Erik ten Hag.

A happy environment for the player should generate better performances, you would think.

Will Reguilon be a success

What is seemingly clear about the Spaniard and really every other signing that Ten Hag has made this summer is the player’s willingness to move to Old Trafford.

To sign players who are hungry to make the move and for that step up in their career can only be a good thing for the Dutchman.

In Reguilon, United have a superb attacking outlet at left-back who can potentially form a lethal partnership with Marcus Rashford although his defending, particularly one-on-one, does need work.
