Manchester United are looking into a late deal to bring Tottenham Hotspur left back Sergio Reguilon to Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag is facing some big problems at left back.
Luke Shaw has suffered a muscle injury, which sounds vague but there aren’t many more details out there right now.
The Athletic report that Shaw could be out for around three months now, which is an enormous blow to the United back line.
Backup Tyrell Malacia didn’t feature in pre-season and is still weeks away from returning, meaning Diogo Dalot had to start at left back against Nottingham Forest.
Lisandro Martinez is another option in that position whilst Alvaro Fernandez’s potential move to Granada could be nixed by United’s need for a left back.
Sergio Reguilon a new option for Manchester United
United could now look to strike a late deal for a new left back with Tottenham Hotspur misfit Sergio Reguilon thought to be a prime target.
Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas claims that United have looked into a move to bring Reguilon to Old Trafford.
The Spaniard joined Spurs for £28million back in 2020 having impressed on loan at Sevilla from Real Madrid.

Whilst Reguilon started out well at Tottenham, he seemed to completely lose his confidence and wasn’t fancied under Antonio Conte.
Reguilon went back to Spain last summer as he joined Atletico Madrid on loan but started just two La Liga games.
Ange Postecoglou now has no plans for Reguilon either and the 26-year-old needs a fresh start away from North London.
United could offer that but much will depend on whether Tottenham really want to loan Reguilon out once again.
Reguilon wanted to join United from Real Madrid
This isn’t the first time United have looked into signing Reguilon.
Fabrizio Romano reported back in 2020 that United had agreed personal terms to sign Reguilon from Real Madrid.
However, United refused to accept any notion of a buy-back clause as part of the deal – and that’s how Tottenham were able to win the race.
Romano claimed that Reguilon was ‘keen’ to join United at the time but it just wasn’t to be.
Fast forward three years and the option may be arising again with United potentially ready to offer him an escape route from Tottenham.
