The last day of August and the second last day of the summer transfer window started with Manchester United addressing their goalkeeping situation.

The Red Devils confirmed the departure of Dean Henderson on Thursday. The Englishman has moved to South London to play for Crystal Palace in a transfer that would reportedly see United bag a fee in the region of £20m including add-ons.

Now, it has emerged that United have struck a deal with another London-based club to make their fourth signing of the summer for Erik ten Hag’s squad. The Dutch coach has already been handed Mason Mount, Andre Onana, and Rasmus Hojlund, and is reported to be keen on adding another midfielder and a left-back to his ranks. The need for a new left-back rose following an injury to Luke Shaw.

Marc Cucurella was seen as the club’s preferred target to cover that position temporarily and United even held concrete talks with Chelsea. However, the proposed loan move is now off.

According to Fabrizio Romano, United have reached a verbal agreement with Tottenham Hotspur to sign Sergio Reguilón on loan. The North London side have agreed to a January break clause, meaning there’s a possibility he could return back to his parent club in the winter transfer window.

The former Real Madrid talent, who was once very highly rated, has struggled for regular game time in recent seasons. Last term, he joined Spanish giants Atletico Madrid on loan and could only manage 12 appearances in all competitions under Diego Simeone.

United are also close to announcing the signing of goalkeeper Altay Bayindir and are in talks with Fiorentina over a potential loan deal for midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

In the space of 48 hours, United might wrap up their fourth, fifth, and sixth summer signing. A few busy hours ahead!
