- Shaw and Malacia both injured
- Cucurella move potentially scuppered
- Reguilon set to sign on loan
WHAT HAPPENED? The Red Devils' search for a left-back is almost over as The Athletic reports they are on the verge of confirming the loan signing of Reguilon after he passed a medical on Thursday. The deal will be a season-long with no option to sign him outright and Untied could end the spell in January.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: United have reportedly been tracking Reguilon — who hasn't yet featured for Tottenham this season — for a while. They were reported to be lining up a shock loan bid for Chelsea's Marc Cucurella earlier this week after seeing Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia ruled out through injury. United are desperate to get a left-back through the door before the window shuts, and Reguilon, who spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, looks set to fill the spot.

WHAT NEXT FOR MAN UTD? Erik ten Hag's team face Arsenal in a huge Premier League clash this Sunday, and with the likes of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martilleni capable of terrorising any full-back in the league, the coach will hope to have Reguilon available.
