Story So Far:
Over the last couple of days, Manchester United have been linked with a transfer to Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilon. Reports from sources like Fabrizio Romano suggest that United have been offered the left-back and a decision will be made in the coming week. On the back of an amazing loan campaign with Sevilla, the Spanish champions want to move him on to another club before they can integrate him into their first team. While Reguilon has been offered to a number of clubs like Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, Napoli and even a move back to Sevilla, it is believed Manchester United are ahead of the pack. The Spaniard is said to be worth about €25 million but there is a catch.
Since he is a promising prospect, Real Madrid wants to include a buy-back clause in his contract. A buy-back clause would mean that at the end of any season, Real Madrid can buy Sergio Reguilon back from Manchester United for a price that will be agreed to between the two clubs and inserted into his contract. As Manchester United are not a selling club, a buy-back clause will be unacceptable to the board and Ed Woodward. A deal will have to be reached wherein United pay more than the €25 million and get the buy-back clause removed. The fee is said to be no problem to United who have currently moved their entire focus on the transfer of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
