Wednesday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Gareth Bale, Jadon Sancho, Sergio Reguilon

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Wednesday, September 16.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester United eye possible reinforcements.

The Red Devils brought in Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in the final days of the winter window but are still expected to be active in the summer as they aim to restore their former glories.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Wednesday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Tottenham Hotspur 'beat Manchester United to Sergio Reguilon signature'

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly close to pipping Manchester United to a shock deal for Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon.

The recently-capped Spain international is back at Madrid after starring on a season's loan for Europa League winners Sevilla last season.

Reguilon is not part of Zinedine Zidane's immediate plans, though, while Sevilla pulled out of the running for his permanent signature due to a lack of funds.

That left Man United as the strong favourites to sign the 23-year-old, but The Athletic claims that Spurs have got to the defender first.

While an agreement is not yet in place, a transfer is described as "highly possible" and Jose Mourinho is confident of getting the deal over the line.

Tottenham have made three signings so far during the summer transfer window, with midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, goalkeeper Joe Hart and right-back Matt Doherty joining.

Spurs kicked off their 2020-21 Premier League campaign with a 1-0 home loss against Everton on Sunday.

Manchester United 'want one-year loan for Bale with option of second'

Manchester United would reportedly prefer to agree a loan deal for Gareth Bale, rather than sign the Real Madrid forward on a permanent basis.

While Bale has allegedly been denied the opportunity to leave the Bernabeu in the past, the two parties hope to agree a compromise over a departure in the coming weeks.

That has led to interest from United, who are growing increasingly frustrated in their efforts to bring in Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.

According to The Sun, United will attempt to sign the Wales international on a season-long loan, while possessing the option to extend the arrangement into a second campaign.

The 31-year-old's agent Jonathan Barnett has frequently insisted that the attacker has little interest in departing Los Blancos on a temporary basis.

Nevertheless, unless United are willing to meet Madrid's £18.5m valuation, the frontman may be left with few options on the table.
