Loads of Man United fans think club dodged a bullet not signing Spurs new boy Sergio Reguilon

Sergio Reguilon became a target for Manchester United this summer after he was offered to the Premier League giants. He made his Tottenham debut against Chelsea on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup.

The interest always seemed exaggerated because this wasn’t a player United approached Real Madrid over, so they were never going to agree to a deal with his former club that would give them a buyback option, as per The Metro.

Tottenham signed the left-back, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla, for a fee of around £28m (via GOAL).

It would be fair to say he did not make the greatest first impression for José Mourinho’s side, but they still won the tie on penalties to put Frank Lampard under pressure in the early stages of the season.

Chelsea full-back and fellow Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta made easy work of Reguilon’s defender in the 19th minute as the Spurs new boy recklessly dived in. Two seconds later Timo Werner opened the scoring with his first goal since joining the Blues.

Here’s what United fans had to say on social media, with most thinking the club dodged a bullet not signing him even though it’s early days yet for the Spain international:

Meanwhile, United are being heavily linked with FC Porto’s Alex Telles. The Telegraph report United are £6m off with their valuation of the player, who is free to speak to foreign clubs in January as his contract expires next year.

    uhh obviously they needed to watch the whole game. Some mistakes cost you (like his did). other’s done (eg the chelsea keeper made a few mistakes). As a Spurs supporter I think he was brilliant especially after making the error. Did not hide

    How can UTD fans not see how fabulous Reguilons debut was, Yes he made an error for 1st goal but after that showed how good he will be. A superb buy by Spurs.

    Shows you man U fans know little about football!!!!!
    This was his first game in Premier, you really don’t get it!!

    Quite a common reaction from blinkered fans when their club fails to sign a player. I recall many United fans claiming that Gareth Bale would never get in the side ahead of Ashley Young when they failed to sign him.

    How can you criticise a player on his debut, that’s pathetic he was good went forward on every opportunity.
