Manchester United are on the verge of completing the signing of Tottenham Hotspur left-back Sergio Reguilon as the contracts have been signed.

According to David Ornstein, of The Athletic, the Spaniard has signed the contract and once all the necessary paperwork has been completed, the defender will be officially confirmed as a new United player, until January at least.

The defender will stay on a season-long loan and there is a break clause in his contract that can be activated in January if the left-back issues are resolved by then.

As well as this, Ornstein claims that United will cover the full wages of Reguilon.

No loan fee will be paid

According to the same report from the Manchester Evening News, United will not pay a loan fee for the Spanish defender which is seemingly why the Old Trafford side decided to press ahead with the deal.

Marc Cucurella, from Chelsea, was seemingly the preferred target for Erik ten Hag.

However, the cost associated with the loan deal and Cucurella featuring in the Carabao Cup has meant the defender’s move to Old Trafford was certainly complicated as a result of this.

Will Reguilon be a success

The links to the Spanish defender seemingly came out of nowhere and the deal has advanced at a fast pace.

The signing of the Spaniard will seemingly make the push for Sofyan Amrabat easier, this is due to the cheaper price of Reguilon compared to Cucurella.

Reguilon is certainly better going forward than he is defensively but the former Real Madrid man will certainly have a baptism of fire if he is registered in time.

His first game for the Red Devils could well be against Bukayo Saka and Arsenal, it certainly would be a big test for the 26-year-old.
