Sergio Reguilon completes loan move to Manchester United on deadline day

Sergio Reguilón has joined Manchester United on season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur until June 2024.

The 26-year-old has played 230 games for a range of clubs including Real Madrid, Sevilla, Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid, and won 6 caps for the Spain national team.

On top of that, Reguilón has won the Europa League and FIFA Club World Cup, so he comes with a lot of experience to provide cover for Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia.

Reguilon travelled to Manchester for a medical examination last night.

The Spaniard’s short-team deal includes a break clause in January, but United are covering all of his wages.

Speaking to club media about his move to United, Reguilon said (via “In life you have to be ready for everything and the chance to represent this great club with such an illustrious history is one that I could not turn down. Having spoken to the manager, I know what he needs from me, and I am ready to play my part in helping the team to achieve success.

“I know that I can contribute to Manchester United this season; I am ready to fight for this group and show everyone my qualities.”

Reguilon could make his debut against Arsenal on Sunday when the Reds travel to London. Erik ten Hag will have a choice between the Spaniard and Diogo Dalot, who started against Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Football director John Murtough added: “Once it became clear that we needed to bring in another left-back we assessed a number of targets and acted quickly to sign Sergio. He possesses all the required qualities to help us achieve our aims this season. He has good experience in both the Premier League and in European competitions, so he is ready to come into the squad and perform straight away.” 

These are the kind of signings United have had to make down the years to cover over the cracks. The reason for it sits with the Glazer family.

Another example of Glazernomics, but hopefully Reguilon can do a job until Shaw returns.
