Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has given his approval for defender Sergio Reguilon to join Premier League giants Manchester United in a £23m deal this summer.
Spanish newspaper Marca disclosed that Zidane waved the buyback clause initially inserted into any potential deal and that this facilitated talks between Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Reigning Spanish champions Real Madrid wanted to insert a buyback clause into the contract for the sale of Sergio Reguilon but the Red Devils were opposed to that idea.

The removal of the buyback clause was facilitated by Real Madrid boss Zidane as per the report from Marca and that has helped the Sergio Reguilon transfer to Manchester United.
The defender wants a move to Manchester United ahead of Sevilla where he spent last season.
He was on loan at Sevilla from Real Madrid and was the first choice left-back when the Spanish La Liga side won the Europa League title.
Sevilla extended their Europa League record for titles won by beating Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan to win the 2019/20 edition.
At Manchester United, Sergio Reguilon will fight for a spot at left-back with the likes of Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams if the Red Devils are able to pull off a deal for him.
