Talks between Manchester United and Real Madrid have taken a very positive turn in the Reds’ pursuit of fullback Sergio Reguilón.
According to Spanish paper Marca, contacts for the transfer have been intensifying, with the La Liga giants only holding out over the inclusion of a buyback clause.
Apparently the major sticking point is Real Madrid’s desire to keep the option of eventually bringing Reguilón back, insistently on the inclusion of a buy back clause in the player’s contract — something United aren’t interested in. The 23-year-old defender is said to be keen on a move to Old Trafford.

Real Madrid’s asking price for the left-back is €30m. Manchester United considered it to be too much, and are preparing a lower bid, but and agreement on a fee should not be much of an issue.
