Report: Spurs defender’s salary demands could be ‘too steep’ for PL club 

Manchester Evening News have revealed that Manchester United might pass up on the chance to sign Sergio Reguilon due to the Tottenham star’s salary demands.

Reguilon has not made Tottenham’s matchday squad for any of the opening three matches of the Premier League season and he is one of many first-team players who are expected to depart Spurs before the transfer window slams shut later this week (Evening Standard).

Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas reported over the weekend that United are considering a shock move for the Tottenham man after Luke Shaw picked up a hamstring injury.

The journalist added that the Red Devils could explore a late deal for Reguilon, who was also alleged to be on Fulham’s wishlist.

Reguilon’s salary excessive for Manchester United

MEN have now also backed up United’s interest in Reguilon, naming the Spurs star and Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella as the two left-backs that the Manchester club are eyeing after the injury to Shaw.

The report adds that this is not the first time Man Utd have explored a move for the 26-year-old, with the club alleged to have considered signing the former Real Madrid man three years ago before they eventually opted to acquire Alex Telles.

However, the publication states that Reguilon’s salary demands could prove ‘too steep’ for the Old Trafford hierarchy.

Even though Reguilon is evidently not part of Postecoglou’s plans and Tottenham are looking to offload him, the club would be hesitant to loan him out to a direct rival. There is no reason for Spurs to strengthen Man Utd’s squad even marginally.
