The chances of returning to the place of success are decreasing day by day, just as it is almost impossible for Sergio Reguilon to be in the competition of Zinedine Zidane for the first team of Real Madrid in the upcoming season.
That is why the call from Manchester could completely change Reguilon's perception and plans for the future. It was Reguilon who was in the Seville team when they defeated Manchester United in the semifinals. Reguilon had the most important role in that victory and he defended that left side brilliantly, but he also showed in the offensive part that he is also good.
Luke Shaw was good last season but injuries that plague him year after year lead United to look for another option. It looks like the leg fracture he suffered a couple of years ago will forever have consequences on him. After the season in which he played one of the key roles in Sevilla's winning the sixth trophy of the Europa League, Reguilon came to the center of attention of the biggest European clubs, and the last in a series that showed great interest in the Spanish national team player is Manchester United.
After the transfer of Donnie van de Beek for about 45,000,000 euros, United is ready to complete another important job according to the taste of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It's not Jadon Sancho or Jack Greallish, it's Reguilon.
Madrid's AS writes that United is practically offering Star Regulon a starter position, as his competition would be Luke Shaw and club child Brandon Williams. Solskjaer is not happy with what is happening on the left defensive flank, primarily because Shaw often struggled with form and was in trouble to maintain competitive condition, while Williams is not yet ready enough to carry a heavy burden on his back, despite the fact that Solskjaer is often indicated confidence last season.
Price: 25-30 million euros
However, Reguilon was seen as an ideal solution at Old Trafford, and that is why United will take action to bring him. However, a big problem in the negotiations is immediately visible. Namely, while he would be ready to sell Reguilon for the sum between 25,000,000 and 30,000,000 euros, Real at the same time demands that a refund clause be included in the agreement with United at a fixed price, according to the model that the Royal Club had when it sent Alvaro Morata to Juventus in due time.
Reguilon is not in Zidane's plans at the moment, because Marcelo and Ferlan Mendy have the advantage on the left side, but the French coach is also aware that the Brazilian will not be able to carry that position on his back for a long time and that Blancos must have a ready solution for the future.
And that is exactly Reguilon, in Zidane's opinion. Reguilon has made drastic progress in the game in the last year and has become one of the most important players in Sevilla, which did not miss Real's sports sector either.
That is why he is expected to be a starter in the League of Nations against Germany and make his debut in the Red Fury jersey, to which Julen Lopetegui obviously found a wire. However, Real is in an impossible position because it cannot have three left defenders of top quality in its ranks, nor can it guarantee minutes to everyone, which puts Real in a situation where it has to send Reguilon to another address.
At the same time, the champion of Spain needs money to fill the financial holes in the coffers ... Sevilla would be an ideal solution for Real, but the winner of the Europa League only offers a new loan, because the club does not have the money to pay the requested compensation.
Regilon was linked with Chelsea for a while, but the club from Stamford Bridge eventually chose Ben Chillwell. Napoli was also in the game.
