Man Utd ‘interested’ in Chelsea target Reguilon with Real Madrid happy to sell

Manchester United are understood to be keen to sign Real Madrid defender Sergio Reguilon, who could be available this summer.

Chelsea were thought to be interested in the Spanish left-back, but snapped up Leicester and England star Ben Chilwell instead on Wednesday.

Having come through Real’s youth academy, Reguilon has struggled to break in to Zinedine Zidane’s first team at the Bernabeu.

The 23-year-old impressed while on loan at Sevilla last season, marking his first full year of La Liga football.

But with Marcelo and Ferland Mendy currently battling it out for the left-back spot, it appears there is no room for Reguilon to return.

As such, he is being linked with a move away from the Spanish capital this summer, and Zidane is believed to be willing to sell him for as little as £18m.

With Chelsea now out of the picture, local outlet Marca report that United are now eyeing a move for Reguilon.

It’s thought that his performances on loan for Sevilla peaked the interest of the Old Trafford officials.

Juventus, Inter Milan and Tottenham are also credited with interest in Reguilon, who is yet to receive his first full cap for Spain.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer assured fans that he was looking to improve his side this summer, though he admitted he did not know when deals would be done.

"I cannot say when or if transfers will be done but we are looking at it and we'll have to sit down because it's a quick turnaround," he said.

"We've got to be 100 per cent sure when we make those deals.

"It's going to be a strange summer. We've only got a couple weeks away from each other until we get going again. That's going to be a mental challenge.

"Of course, we'll keep pushing and keep demanding more of players we have but we're looking to improve.”
