In a recent report, Marca has stated that Manchester United are intensifying their efforts to land Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon this summer. It is understood that Los Blancos also wants to include a buy-back clause before sanctioning his exit with the Red Devils already stepping up their attempts to sign the Spanish defender during this ongoing transfer window (via Marca).
Reguilon’s Outstanding Loan Spell Under Julen Lopetegui’s Tutelage At Seville
The Real Madrid youth product had a successful loan spell with Sevilla last season which has raised his stock considerably in European football. He managed to produce some mesmerising displays as Julen Lopetegui’s primary left-back in the previous campaign and helped the Spanish club secure the UEFA Europa League trophy as well.
Reguilon participated in 38 matches for the Seville-based outfit in the last term, scoring three goals and providing five assists in various competitions. The Madrid-born defensive ace deserves a pat on the back for giving a good account of himself after he averaged 1.8 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 1.4 clearances, 0.9 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per game in the 2019-20 La Liga campaign.
He was even pretty tidy when passing the ball from the left flank as evident from his pass success rate of 81.4% in league football (stats via whoscored).
At the moment, Zinedine Zidane has Marcelo and Ferland Mendy battling for the left-back position at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium while Nacho provides cover for them as part of the French head coach’s match-day squad. Hence, it is safe to assume that Reguilon is surplus to requirements at the Spanish capital, so it makes sense for the player to seek a move elsewhere either on loan or permanently before the transfer window slams shut in October.
What Will The Spanish Full-Back Bring To The Theatre Of Dreams?
Reguilon has shown that he is capable of stretching the opposition by using his pace and agility to make some intelligent runs down the left-wing. He is also a reliable defender at the back and hardly gets beat in a 1v1 foot race versus the opponent out on the wide areas. The Spaniard can deliver some inviting crosses into the danger area which his teammates can attack in search of goals in the final third. He picked up five assists for Sevilla last season due to his tenacity to get forward and be creative with his passes.
Right now, Reguilon would be a significant upgrade over the injury-prone, Luke Shaw and the inexperienced Brandon Williams at Old Trafford. If the Real Madrid talent can maintain his high standards in the Premier League, then he could turn out to be a grand success under the stewardship of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the years to come. With all things considered, it makes sense for the Red Devils to go all out in pursuit of Reguilon as he will bolster their defence and aid their quest to win some major silverware in the coming seasons.
