Man United confirm Sergio Reguilon’s return to Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester United have officially announced the premature end of Sergio Reguilon’s loan spell at Old Trafford, with the player returning to Tottenham Hotspur.

United secured Reguilon’s services on deadline day last summer following long-term injuries to Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia, with the Spanish left-back signing an initial season-long loan deal.

The 27-year-old featured 12 times for Erik ten Hag’s side across all competitions, including nine Premier League appearances where he created one big chance.

However, with Shaw back to fitness – albeit having missed the last two games with a minor knock – and Malacia making significant progress in his recovery, United have sent Reguilon back to Spurs.

The Red Devils activated a break clause in Reguilon’s contract while confirming that the reduced number of games in the second half of the season contributed to their decisions.

Ten Hag’s side have been eliminated from the Champions League and the League Cup, freeing up significant space in their 2024 schedule with only the Premier League and the FA Cup left to compete in.

“Sergio Reguilon is returning to his parent club Tottenham Hotspur after Manchester United activated a break clause in the loan agreement,” read a statement from the club.

“Sergio fulfilled the role he was brought in to provide cover for Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia while both were out with long-term injuries.

“While Luke has missed the past two games with a minor injury, the England international is expected back soon. Tyrell, meanwhile, is getting closer to a return from his knee injury.”

Reguilon departs United, having won just four of his 12 games (L8). He only started seven games in all competitions for United, with the most recent coming in the 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth at the start of December.

Diogo Dalot is versatile enough to cover at left-back if Shaw and Malacia suffer any unforeseen setbacks in their recoveries.
