Zinedine Zidane has reportedly given Manchester United his blessing to sign Sergio Reguilon.
The Real Madrid left-back, who was on loan at Sevilla last season, has caught the eye of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. in recent months.
The defender would provide competition for places at left-back, and some much needed cover, given both Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams are currently out of action with injuries.
Real Madrid had initially insisted that a buyback clause would need to be included in any deal to sell Reguilon to Manchester United.
The Red Devils were understandably unhappy with this clause, and Zidane appears to have had a chance of heart.
El Desmarque claims Zidane is now happy to sanction the sale without the clause, as it will help get the Red Devils on side.
Real are still keen on signing France World Cup winner Paul Pogba, and believe that establishing a good relationship with United – by dropping the clause – will help their cause.
United recently snapped up Donny van de Beek from Ajax to play alongside Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the middle of the park next season.
