Manchester United have a clear path to sign Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid, should they wish to do so. The left-back impressed in the Europa League against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as the Andalusians won the competition for a record sixth time.
Reguilon’s stock is high following an impressive campaign in La Liga at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and now he could be set to earn a move to the Premier League.
He has been deemed surplus to requirements by Zinedine Zidane, who also has Marcelo and Ferland Mendy as options.
The Spanish international is valued at around £25million and is available for transfer this summer.
The 23-year-old is believed to have attracted interest from Chelsea, Everton and Tottenham during the current transfer window.

Despite that, it’s United who look best-placed to win the race for his signature as they look to bring in extra competition for Luke Shaw.
Sevilla have now decided they will not be looking to re-sign Reguilon, in a boost for Ed Woodward.
They are instead in advanced talks to sign Argentina international left-back Marcos Acuna from Sporting.
The deal is worth around £9.2million which suits bargain hunter Monchi down to the ground.

Reguilon was a little out of Sevilla’s price range and now Manchester United appear to be the only club willing to pay up.
According to United legend Rio Ferdinand, it’s a deal worth pursuing. He told Radio5 Live: “I would say definitely after Van de Beek they need probably – if they’re going to really compete – three or four. Players that can go in and actually affect the first team, the first XI.
“And Reguilon we’re talking about, the lad at Sevilla who’s from Real Madrid, he was voted the best left-back in La Liga so really good credentials.
“Luke Shaw I think is unfortunate in terms of his injuries. He’s played games but then he hasn’t been able to sustain a full season without any injuries, which is disappointing.

“But listen, if I was looking at it and looking at the team, in the forward areas I think one or two additions.
“One definitely, maybe two, are needed that can come in and affect that first team and push people, if not start.
“And then I think a centre-back. That area, for me, is where there’s a lack of real, genuine pace and I think the best teams around at the moment have a player in one of the two players that play [at centre-back] in a four that has genuine pace normally.’
