Real Madrid demand could scupper Man Utd plan to sign Sergio Reguilon


Manchester United could reportedly end their pursuit of Real Madrid ace Sergio Reguilon due to the La Liga outfit’s demands.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had been linked with a move for the left-back, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla.

Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams impressed at times last season though Shaw has previously come under heavy criticism during his time at Old Trafford.

Real Madrid are reportedly willing to listen to offers in the region of £27m for Reguilon with Zinedine Zidan having Marcelo and Ferland Mendy ahead of him in the pecking order.

United are believed have a stronger chance of signing Reguilon, 23, than Sevilla due to the Red Devils’ financial power.

But Estadio Deportivo claim Real still rate the left-back highly and would want to include a buyback option or a sell-on clause.

The report adds that United are unlikely to agree to those terms and could now end their pursuit.

Manchester United made their first move of the summer transfer window as Donny van de Beek headed to Old Trafford from Ajax.

Solskjaer had said of his transfer business: “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.

“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.

“It’s a strange one. The league starts very quickly but the market’s open for so long. We’ve got to be good smart and clever.

“We definitely need to improve if you want to move up the table and take steps further in the cups.”

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …

Mourinho looking to steal Man United transfer with phone call

Jose Mourinho has made some good progress with Tottenham Hotspur. The club was struggling when Mauricio Pochetino left mid-season. Jose has his ways of doing things and many times his way might not be ideal.

But as Jose has always said, the most important thing is to get in the result. And since Mourinho has joined only Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United, have earned more points than Tottenham.

Tottenham was at the 14th spot in the Premier League. Jose took them to sixth place and got them back in Europe. However, the expectations will be even higher for the next season. Spurs will want to push into the top four and compete for a Champions League place.

However to accomplish that goal Jose will need to add some players. Tottenham have already completed 3 signings. The club signed Joe Hart from Burnley on a free transfer.

Matt Doherty came in from Wolverhampton for £15 million and Pierre-Emile Hoijberg came in from Southampton for the same amount. But Jose Mourinho wants mo…
