Manchester United have allegedly tabled a bid for Sergio Reguilón.

The traditional Old Trafford style of football has always relied quite heavily on flankmen and wingers to build the attack. As such, the roles on either side play a crucial part in the fortunes of any United side that has gone on to win big.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær is keen on replicating that level of past success and for that, he will require key players in every spot.

By securing the signing of Donny van de Beek, the Norwegian certainly has enviable options in the midfield.

However, he could now that extend that same level of squad depth to their left flank too.

According to AS, Manchester United have tabled a bid to sign Sergio Reguilón from Real Madrid. The 23-year-old Spaniard did exceptionally well on loan with Sevilla last season but it is understood that Zinedine Zidane does not see a regular role for him ahead of his first-choice options of Marcelo and Ferland Mendy.

This claim is in line with a report from just a few days ago that named United as amongst several big clubs interested in making the left-back their own.

This source, however, names United and Sevilla to be the top names keen on making the deal. However, the Premier League outfit may be the only side interested in buying as Sevilla are merely interested in one more loan spell.

Further, the report also adds that Madrid could sell the player for around €25-30 million now but include a buy-back clause to hold hope of a future with their academy graduate. United are believed to be open to offer him a long-term deal.

That is understandable given the fitness concerns of Luke Shaw and the fact that academy graduate Brandon Williams still only has a few months of top-level football under his belt.
