Reguilon has impressed throughout last season after spending the campaign out on-loan with Sevilla.

The Spaniard’s efforts helped guide Sevilla to their record breaking sixth Europa League trophy after they beat Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan 3-2 in last season’s final.

As the young full-back returned to parent club Real Madrid, speculation surrounding his long-term future has grown after it emerged that United are very keen on securing his services.

According to leading journalist Fabrizio Romano, Zinedine Zidane has recently offered the left-back to United but the Reds are rumoured not to be the only top European side trying to sign Reguilon.
A recent report from OkDiario via Express claims that the Red’s former manager Mourinho who now manages Daniel Levy’s Spurs has recently personally contacted Reguilon in a bid to convince him to snub a move to Old Trafford and instead help him guide the London side back into the Champions League.

The report claims that Mourinho has been monitoring the 23-year-old for quite some time and is keen to add the player to his Spurs ranks in a bid to get the club back into the big time.
