Manchester United opted to look to the transfer market to address a growing left-back dilemma as both Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia were injured.

Sergio Reguilon, who will provide seasoned cover, has been signed on loan from Tottenham.

Tottenham signed Reguilon from Sevilla for £28 million in 2020, but he fell out of favor due to management changes and also had a loan spell at Atletico Madrid last season.

Merson questions Reguilon’s decision.

Sergio Reguilon was not regarded as United’s top choice. Marc Cucurella was a Chelsea defender. The deal was said to be’very near’ by Marca.

However, negotiations broke down because Chelsea demanded an exorbitant loan fee. United moved away, leaving Reguilon with no loan cost.

Manchester United should be concerned about a shortage of cash, according to Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson.

“Reguilon?” he exclaimed. If you’re a Manchester United supporter, you’re probably frightened. Cucurella – Chelsea wanted £7 million, but they couldn’t afford to take a good player on loan.

“And Liverpool are turning down £150 million bids.” What is going on here? “Where are Manchester United going right now?”

Merson is both correct and incorrect.

Merson is both correct and incorrect. With only a few months to repay the loan, a £7 million loan cost was far too high for Marc Cucurella, who also earned more than Reguilon. As a result, United was wise not to give in to Chelsea’s demands.

On a broader level, he is correct to highlight concerns about Manchester United’s lack of financial power, which has been hampered by Financial Fair Play and poor decision-making by the Glazers over the years.

United were unable to afford to sign Sofyan Amrabat and were forced to settle for a loan deal, emphasizing the club’s lack of available money.

Erik ten Hag’s voice is important.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is the authoritative voice, and he is satisfied with the signing of Sergio Reguilon.

“He is a very experienced player, a player for big clubs, a player who has already played a lot of games in La Liga, in the Premier League,” he said at his press conference.

“So, he has a very good background, and we’ve seen that he can play very intense football, so we’re pleased.”

“We had a problem with Luke Shaw being injured and Ty[rell] Malacia being injured, but they are out for the long term, so I think we responded very well in that emergency situation.”
