In a recent report, Estadio Deportivo has stated that Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon’s move to Manchester United could be in jeopardy as Los Blancos are pushing for the inclusion of a buy-back clause which the Red Devils might not accept.
It is believed that several clubs are interested in recruiting him with the likes of Everton, Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, Tottenham Hotspur and Sevilla willing to rival Man United in the race for the talented defender’s signature this summer (via Estadio Deportivo).
Reguilon’s Spectacular Loan Season With Sevilla
Reguilon managed to score three goals and provide five assists in 38 matches during his successful loan spell at Seville in the previous campaign as he produced a string of eye-catching displays on the left side of Julen Lopetegui’s defence. He ended the season by helping the Spanish outfit reclaim the UEFA Europa League trophy after they secured an entertaining 3-2 victory over Inter Milan last month.
The 23-year-old did well to prove his worth at both ends of the pitch. He averaged 1.8 tackles, 1.2 interceptions, 1.4 clearances, 0.9 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.5 dribbles per game in La Liga and the Europa League last season. Reguilon deserves a pat on the back for completing 81.6% of his attempted passes in the top tier of Spain which showcases just how careful he can be when distributing possession from the left flank (stats via whoscored).
What Are The Spanish Left-Back’s Best Attributes?
Reguilon excels at making quick runs with the ball from the left-back position and can deliver some meaningful crosses into the opponent’s penalty area. He is a reliable defender when isolated in a 1v1 situation with the opposition out on the wide areas. The promising left-back can pull off some crucial interceptions and last-ditch clearances for his team. The Spaniard is also not shy of having a shot at goal when given time and space to strike the ball in the decisive end of the field.
Should Los Blancos Keep Reguilon At The Spanish Capital Beyond This Summer?
Reguilon has got the potential to become a world-class left-back someday, so the Madrid giants would be foolish to sanction his departure this summer without including a buy-back clause. Zinedine Zidane should stick with the Spanish left-back unless a club decides to agree to their demands during this ongoing transfer window.
The one-time Spanish U-21 international has what it takes to give Marcelo and Ferland Mendy a run for their money in search of a regular starting spot in Zidane’s first-team next season. Plus, the Spanish champions will have more strength in depth with Reguilon in their squad. Hence, Zidane would be wise to retain his services for the long-run even if it means sending him out on loan in this off-season so that he can return to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as a better version of himself next summer.
