As explained by football.london, Tottenham are facing a potential Sergio Reguilon blow as current Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane faces an untimely sack – with the proposed new boss having an option to recall Daniel Levy’s summer signing due to an inserted buyback clause.
This football.london update, detailing that Reguilon could leave with Jose Mourinho powerless, indicates that while Zidane was not a fan of Reguilon, whoever his successor turns out to be could soon be tempted to take up the option to re-sign the Spaniard – with some reports even touting Mauricio Pochettino.
Reguilon potential blow emerges
If Zidane is succeeded by Pochettino or another manager of that ilk, Spurs face the prospect of losing Reguilon just one season after he signed for Spurs in a deal which could rise to £32 million.
The Galacticos inserted a buy-back clause into the Reguilon deal, meaning they can activate it at any point after this campaign for a larger fee than Levy paid.
This possibility, with Zidane at the helm, arguably weighed in favour of Spurs as Lilywhites supporters are hopeful they could keep one of their best signings of the summer.
Now, as football.london explain, any new boss appointed by Madrid could have a completely different philosophy on Reguilon and may want to recall him – with this update having the potential to become extremely worrying.
Transfer Tavern take
Whilst, for now, Reguilon will remain a Spurs player – this news could be concerning, especially given how much he is adapted to life in the Premier League so far.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham do lose their man, but only time will tell, and it would be a major blow as he is quickly becoming a vital part of Mourinho’s side, playing 90 minutes in each of the last four Premier League matches, grabbing one assist and three clean sheets across that time (Whoscored).
