Manchester United managed to secure a last-minute deal for Sergio Reguilon on Deadline Day, thanks in part to Burnley’s prior decision to decline the opportunity to sign him. The talented Tottenham defender joined United on a season-long loan, featuring a January break clause, primarily as emergency cover for the left-back position. This move was prompted by injuries to Tyrell Malacia and Luke Shaw, leaving manager Erik Ten Hag in a predicament. After ruling out Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella, Reguilon emerged as the preferred choice to bolster the squad.
Following his stint on the bench during the 3-1 loss to Arsenal, Sergio Reguilon is poised to make his debut for Manchester United in their upcoming match against Brighton this Saturday. United secured the transfer by committing to cover Reguilon’s substantial £120,000-a-week wages, a financial commitment that Burnley, unfortunately, found themselves unable to match.
