Football finance guru Kieran Maguire has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur would not feel too aggrieved if they sold Sergio Reguilon back to Real Madrid.
Spanish newspaper Sport have reported that the La Liga giants are planning to re-sign the Spain international less than six months after selling him to Spurs.
Should Spurs sell Reguilon for a potentially big profit?
The North London club paid a reported £25m for him in the summer transfer window, and the buy-back clause would be at a greater value than this sum.
Maguire has since claimed to Football Insider that that kind of deal may suit the Lilywhites if they were for whatever reason to decide to sell the Spain international:
“If you are selling a younger player who you don’t really want to sell, this is a way of accelerating the deal.
“The buying club tends to be reluctant because Reguilon’s market value is probably going to be more than £41m but at least Spurs would get a decent fee out of it should Real Madrid choose to utilise it.
“I think to a certain extent everyone’s happy should the player leave. It’s very much part of modern-day negotiations.”
Spurs must keep Reguilon at all costs
Jose Mourinho’s team must look to keep Reguilon at all costs, even if they were to yield a tidy profit if they were to sell him back to Los Blancos.
The 24-year-old has turned out to be a very good buy so far, winning no fewer than 4.1 of his duels a game so far in the Premier League in the 2020/21 term, while also averaging 2.3 clearances, 1.7 tackles and one interception per match, grabbing himself three assists (Sofascore).
Pundit and former full-back Micah Richards even described him as ‘brilliant’ in a recent display in the 1-1 home draw against Fulham, and no matter how much money THFC could potentially get back for him, Reguilon must be kept at all costs.
