Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side made their first summer acquisition earlier in the week when they officially confirmed the arrival of Donny van de beek from Ajax, and now fans are hungry for even more signings.
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho remains the ongoing priority as United look to bolster their attacking line, but the club is also keen to reinforce their defensive line too.
Real Madrid left-back Reguilon is one such player of interest and MEN Sport reported earlier in the week United are monitoring the defender amid uncertainty over their full-back situation.
David de Gea sent fans wild when he uploaded a picture with Reguilon to his Instagram page on Saturday, and now Greenwood has had the same effect as he was spotted ‘following’ the left-back on social media.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed Greenwood and Reguilon had recently exchanged ‘follows’ on Instagram, which naturally sent supporters into overdrive ahead of a possible summer transfer.

Can only mean one thing…
Very weird one to explain that lol how do you make sense of Mason following Sergio, without the potential transfer cloud hanging around it.

United decided in November not to move for a left-back due to the emergence of Brandon Williams, having shown interest in Ben Chilwell prior to his £50million move to Chelsea. Williams, 20, started 25 times in his breakthrough season and signed a new four-year contract in August.
Luke Shaw excelled in the second half of last season until he sustained an ankle injury against Southampton and Williams was criticised by some for his performances in the run-in.
