A big claim has emerged from the Spanish press involving Tottenham Hotspur star Sergio Reguilon, and it could be worrying news for Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Lowdown: Spurs stars eye moves away…
Over the summer, it’s safe to say there were no shortage of Tottenham players eyeing moves away from N17.
Who definitely needs to leave Spurs?
The most high profile of them, star striker Harry Kane, was heavily linked with a move to Manchester City as their boss Pep Guardiola even confirmed interest in the player.
This move failed to come to fruition with more exit news then emerging, this time concerning another big name in Tanguy Ndombele.
Spurs’ club record signing told club chiefs he wanted to leave before August 31 but, yet again, a departure failed to materialise.
The Latest: Reguilon has ‘already said yes’ to Madrid…
As per El Nacional (via Sport Witness), yet another Spurs player appears to have one eye on a move away as news emerges on defender Reguilon.
According to the Spanish source’s information, is it only a ‘matter of time’ before Real Madrid decide to activate their €40 million (£33.7m) release clause and re-sign the 24-year-old.
The clause comes into effect next summer and was a major talking point of the deal which brought Reguilon to Spurs in 2020.
As well as this, El Nacional go on to claim that the player himself has ‘already said yes’ to the Galacticos with club president Florentino Perez set to green light a swoop at Carlo Ancelotti’s request.
While they claim this move ‘will not happen’ in January due to Tottenham’s stance on an early sale, it appears Real could take matters into their own hands later on in 2022.
The Verdict: Big blow for Spurs?
Losing Reguilon next summer would come as a major blow for Spurs given their lack of options without the Spaniard.
Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon are able to deputise in his stead but Fabio Paratici would more than likely have to take to the transfer market, especially given the latter man’s injury record and inability to work his way into Tottenham’s plans.
