Man United’s deal for Madrid star set to collapse

Timothy Aiyeku



Man United might no longer land their defensive target Sergio Reguilon with Real Madrid now demanding a buy-back clause to be able to sanction the deal in this summer transfer window.

Reports by El Partidazo de COPE claim the Red Devils are on the verge of striking a £27million deal for the left-back as the position is a major point of need for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be able to bring in the competition fro Luke Shaw but with the latest development, it could fail.

Real Madrid have insisted that before sanctioning the deal, a clause for a compulsory buy-back option for the same fee must be included and that remains a major stumbling block to the deal.

Man United are now busy with the summer transfer window as they have already secured their first signing with Donny van de Beek and are being linked with a number of players.

It is understood that much attention has been given to England international winger Jadon Sancho but there has not been any headway in their negotiation with his owners, Borussia Dortmund.

Should Man United land Sergio Reguilon, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be able to boast of solid left-back options in his team ahead of the coming season.
