Manchester United would be getting an “excellent” left-back who is good both going forward and defensively if they signed Sergio Reguilon, according to former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson. Real Madrid ace Reguilon has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the last few days. The 23-year-old spent last season on loan at Sevilla which helped him win his first cap for Spain in the 4-0 Nations League win over Ukraine on Sunday.
Reports claim Reguilon would cost United up to €30million but Real may demand a buy-back clause is inserted into any deal.
When asked about United’s interest in the player, Robson was full of praise for what he would bring as an all-round package.
“He’s an excellent player,” Robson said on the Gab and Juls podcast.
“He played really well in the game against Ukraine, he actually got injured in the very last minute with a twisted ankle.

“But it wasn’t just his ability with the ball going forward, it wasn’t his overlapping runs and his speed, it was also his recovery runs.
“Winning the ball back so quickly, he was outstanding along with Ansu Fati.”
Spanish football expert Alvaro Montero claims Arsenal and Sevilla are also options for Reguilon moving forward.
“There are two options [in the Premier League] – Arsenal and Manchester United,” Madrid-based reporter Montero told Sky Sports News.

“Also Sevilla, here in Spain, the thing is as we said a few days ago, Real Madrid want to sell him but with a buy-back option.
“So in case he does a fabulous season like he has done this year in Sevilla, Real Madrid can sign him again next year.
“The player likes the idea of travelling to England and playing in the Premier League.”
Elsewhere, United academy graduate Danny Higginbotham believes the Red Devils must make a couple more signings after the addition of Donny van de Beek last week.
“I think from Manchester United’s perspective they need to look at it and say ‘we need to close the gap to Manchester City and we need to close the gap to Liverpool’, and I think they need a couple more signings,” Higginbotham told ESPN FC.
“In an ideal world I think they need another centre-back. If they could get [Jadon] Sancho in, that would be absolutely brilliant.
“Then, they could start to ask questions about the top two in particular.
“At the moment, Liverpool and Manchester City are lightyears ahead in the Premier League.”
