Sevilla director accepts being outmuscled in pursuit of Man United target Sergio Reguilon

Manchester United are one of the clubs being heavily linked with Real Madrid defender Sergio Reguilon.

The left-back spent last season on loan at Sevilla, assisting the equaliser in their 2-1 win over United in the Europa League semi-finals, and club director Monchi has made it no secret that he would have him back in a heartbeat.

Speaking to Estadio Deportivo, Monchi said: “Regarding the issue of Reguilon, I already said it, we would love to have him here but it is complicated because there are economically very strong rivals with whom we are not in a position to fight.

“We are in a health and economic crisis, so we are going to put it down when it comes to talking about quantities, luckily it has caught us in a good circumstance, but the crisis also affects Sevilla FC. We are making the investment that we believe are appropriate to strengthen the workforce.”

Monchi also explains Sevilla’s stance in the current market.

United would be a look that could outmuscle Sevilla in the transfer market, and it would be a good reason for them to step away if the Red Devils have signalled significant interest.

It was originally reported by Marca that United are keen on brining the highly-rated full-back to Old Trafford after Chelsea’s signing of Ben Chilwell from Leicester City ruled them out of the race for his signature.

United could do with another left-back and I think Reguilon would come in as a starter. Competition is good and Brandon Williams is pushing on nicely, but I wonder what it means for Luke Shaw who misses the start of the season with injury.
