A fresh update on Manchester United’s pursuit of Sergio Reguilon has emerged on Monday afternoon.
Reguilon, 23, is a product of Real Madrid’s youth system.
However, to this point, he has managed just 22 appearances for Los Blancos’ senior side.
This struggle for regular first-team minutes eventually led to the left-back joining fellow Spanish outfit Sevilla on loan for the 2019/20 campaign.
And to say that the stopper went on to impress at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán would be something of an understatement.
Reguilon notched 31 La Liga appearances this past season, in which he scored two, assisted four, and helped Sevilla to secure a Champions League berth.
The stopper also played a key role in the club clinching their latest Europa League title last month.
It should too be noted that Sevilla were the owners of the third-tightest defence in the Spanish top-flight, with only the two Madrid clubs having conceded fewer goals.
Reguilon wants to join Man United
Of that trio, though, it looks to be United who are more likely to land the full-back, with it claimed recently that Reguilon had been offered to the Red Devils.
However, United did look to be facing competition from Sevilla, with the player himself said to have been leaning toward a return to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.
If the aforementioned update from Fabrizio Romano is to be believed though, then Man United now look to have a much better chance of landing the defender.
The reason for this is because, according to Romano, Sevilla are out of the race for the Spaniard. Sevilla have also, on Monday, announced the signing of left-back Marcos Acuna.
It is also added that Man United agreeing personal terms with the Real Madrid man would not be an issue and most crucially of all, Reguilon wants to join the Manchester powerhouse.
The main stumbling block in any potential deal, though, looks to be the transfer fee, with United reportedly not willing to stump up the €30m asking price:
Manchester United are considering a move by days but won’t pay €30m price tag. Real Madrid also asking for a ‘buy back clause’. Personal terms not an issue – Reguilon wants to join #MUFC. Opening bid to be submitted soon. Sevilla: out of the race. #ManUtd https://t.co/b7WC7wQcJa
