The Athletic‘s David Ornstein says he is getting contradictory reports about Manchester United’s interest in Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon.
The reliable journalist says that Real are demanding €35m (£32m) for the 23-year-old, rather than the €30m (£27m) being reported, and some of his contacts at the Manchester club have told him they fear the Red Devils are being used to drum up interest in the player. However, it is thought a decision on the fullback’s future is expected imminently:
“I’ve been told by some contacts that there is an offer but Old Trafford sources deny this and think they’re being used to draw a bid from Tottenham. Now, this is a situation that appears to be changing by the day and I am informed that a final decision will be made [by Real Madrid] in the coming days.”
Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that United, along with Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have all been offered Reguilon but, at this stage, no club has made a formal offer for the Spaniard.
Ornstein does say Sevilla would like to re-sign the player as well, but the La Liga side are only interested in another loan deal and Real are leaning towards selling him before the transfer window closes next month.
