According to Football Insider sources, Tottenham’s summer signing Sergio Reguilon is blowing away Jose Mourinho and Spurs staff behind the scenes, with words like ‘phenomenal’ and ‘brilliant’ being used to describe his work in training.
Reguilon shining for Spurs
As per Football Insider, the Spaniard has turned Mourinho’s head with his potential to be a Premier League star, and performances behind the scenes in training are only doing more to leave an impression.
Despite the Portuguese being a huge ‘admirer’ of Ben Davies, it is apparently Reguilon who he believes will go on to play a crucial role during Tottenham’s challenge for silverware this season.
Transfer Tavern take
Real Madrid inserted a buyback clause into the agreement, allowing them to re-sign the defender for an increased fee either in the summer of 2021 or 2022.
In that instance, Mourinho and co would be helpless to prevent his departure, and Tottenham will be hoping that eventuality doesn’t come to pass, even if the clause potentially helps the club to sign Reguilon for a fairly meagre fee.
However, if the left-back continues this fine form, Spurs will have to keep an eye out in case his former club come knocking next summer.
