The Spanish left-back who had played a major role in Lopetegui’s squad to win the UEFA Europa League last season has returned to his parent club Real Madrid. But it seems the French boss isn’t too convinced with his performance despite being voted La Liga’s best left-back last season.
Zidane prefers his €47m signing Ferland Mendy and Marcelo is going to stay at least another year. He intends not to use the 23-year-old Spanish talent who is even preferred by Luis Enrique for the national team.
Sevilla are not interested to sign Reguilon back despite his stellar performances last season. They have already signed Marcos Acuna from Sporting.
Premier League club Manchester United is keen on signing the left-back and strengthening their defence. Reguilon also wants to join the Red Devils.
But, before the Sergio Reguilon-Manchester United deal is completed, there are some hurdles to cross.
United doesn’t want to pay Real Madrid’s €30m price tag for the left-back. On top of that, Real Madrid are also asking for a ‘buy-back clause’.
Although Zidane doesn’t have Reguilon in his plan for this season, Madrid wants to make sure to include a buy-back clause so that they can bring their homegrown player back to the Bernabeu if he manages to establish himself as a world-class player.
Real Madrid and Manchester United need to sort these things out before the transfer can be completed. United’s agreement with Reguilon on personal terms won’t be any problem. Just the transfer fee and the buy-back clause needs to be sorted.
