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.
The Holland international is expected to play as an anchor man behind the Red Devils duo, enabling them to express themselves further up the pitch.
Van de Beek said: "I cannot begin to explain how incredible an opportunity it is to join a club with such an amazing history.
"I am now ready to take the next step in my career and perform at the highest level and there is no higher standard than Manchester United.
"This team has some of the best midfielders in the world and I know that I can learn from them and also bring my own strengths to the group.
"Having spoken to the manager about his vision for this team, the direction that the club is going in is hugely exciting and I cannot wait to be a part of that."
