Speaking to AS, Tottenham Hotspur summer signing and fan favourite Sergio Reguilon opened up over life in the English capital and a possible return to Real Madrid taking into account the proposed buy-back clause – with the Spaniard refusing to rule it out whilst candidly admitting it ‘would be nice‘ one day.
Reguilon, who moved to Spurs in the summer, becoming the club’s fourth acquisition in a window to remember, came to north London in a deal which could rise to £32 million.
Reguilon worry emerges
The left-back, since completing his switch, has seemingly enjoyed his start to life at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – with manager Jose Mourinho largely favouring him in the left-back role following an array of impressive performances.
Reports also suggested he was impressing behind the scenes in training, with Spurs staff apparently blown away by the ‘phenomenal’ starlet at Hotspur Way, amid claims the Galacticos could activate his buy-back clause due to their lack of depth at full-back (Football Insider).
Whilst explaining he is happy at Tottenham, Reguilon also admitted to AS that a future return to Real ‘would be nice’ – coming as the La Liga giants have an option to instigate his return in either the summer of 2021 or 2022.
Transfer Tavern take
If Madrid do opt to use their inserted buy-back option, Mourinho and co would be powerless to stop his exit back to Spain – but one key element is Reguilon’s personal desire to leave.
Indeed, the 24-year-old could reject any proposed move to the Bernabeu and stay at Spurs, but after admitting it would be nice to one day return to Madrid, this may come as a worry for the Lilywhites.
Whether or not Real do opt to trigger the clause remains to be seen, but Tottenham won’t want to lose arguably one of their best signings of the summer window.
