According to Spanish newspaper Marca, talks are ongoing between Manchester United and Real Madrid for Sergio Reguilon.

Marca report it is United who are showing more interest in Reguilon than any other club.

Reguilon is waiting to find out what his future holds, with no space for him at Real Madrid due to Marcelo and Ferland Mendy.

The report states: “Both parties (player and club) have found the perfect destination at Manchester United. Reguilón will be able to play and feel important, in addition to being an attractive team and in which he has players already known to him such as David de Gea and Juan Mata.”

Talks ongoing

The paper claim Real Madrid and United ‘leaders’ are holding talks, with Reguilon recently switching agents.

The Spain international is represented by Kia Joorabchian, Carlos Tevez’s former agent.

There is still an issue of Real’s desire for a buy-back clause to be inserted into a deal, to be resolved.

Sevilla are out of the race, having moved on to target Marcos Acuna.

Should we believe it?

Marca is a paper with close ties to Madrid, and United fans have seen the paper be wrong before.

Real’s interest is to shift Reguilon and get funds in, so United could be being used here.

Forbes reported last week that United felt Tottenham could make a push for Reguilon.

Luke Shaw returned to action at the weekend at left-back, while Brandon Williams is also fit.

Adding a left-back of Reguilon’s quality would strengthen United, but we are not totally convinced the Red Devils are ready to shell out to sign the Spain international.
