Manchester United were pushing to sign Marc Cucurella from Chelsea to reinforce their left back position but the player featured for the Blues last night and the move is in doubt.
In such a scenario, the Red Devils have quickly moved to hire the services of Sergio Reguilon on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.
Back in 2020, the Old Trafford club were eager to lure the former Sevilla player but he ended up joining Spurs.
Now, according to multiple media outlets, the 26-year-old is close to signing for Man United on a temporary basis.
According to The Athletic, the 20-time English champions are working to complete the deal and have given the player permission to travel for a medical.
Similarly, The Mail have exclusively reported that the Spanish international is heading to Old Trafford after talks to lure Cucurella from Chelsea stalled.
Luke Shaw is expected to be out for more than two months and Erik ten Hag must sign a new left back.
Last season, Reguilon, who earns around £48,000 a week, was on loan with Atletico Madrid but spent half of the time on the injury table and half on the bench under Diego Simeone.
The 6-capped left back only started two games in all competitions for the Rojiblancos. This season, he has been absent for Spurs.
Reguilon has played 67 games for the north Londoners, so he has ample experience in England but do you think he is good enough to improve the Man Utd squad?
