David Ornstein has revealed on The Athletic’s live transfer blog that Manchester United are now seriously considering a move for Tottenham left-back Sergio Reguilon.
The speculation linking Reguilon with a move to United first appeared last week when Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas suggested that the Red Devils had identified the Tottenham man as a potential target after the injury to Luke Shaw.
However, Manchester Evening News subsequently suggested that the Old Trafford hierarchy found the Spaniand’s wages to be excessive, and the rumour subsequently died down.
United now considering late move for Reguilon
Ornsiten has claimed that Reguilon is now back on United’s wishlist, with the club said to be considering the 26-year-old as a ‘live option’ for the left-back slot.
The journalist explains that Manchester club were set to submit a proposal to sign Marc Cucurella but after he played in Chelsea’s Carabao Cup win against AFC Wimbledon (which means that he is cup-tied), Eric Ten Hag’s men are ready to turn their attention to Reguilon.
Ornstein adds that while a deal for Cucurella remains in play for United, their final decision could depend on financial reasons as they are also trying to conclude a deal for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.
Spurs Web Opinion
United would likely only be exploring a loan deal for Reguilon until January, given that Shaw is expected to be out of action until the end of the year.
Tottenham would probably be happy to let the Spaniard go as they are in a race against time to trim their squad and make spaces for new signings.
