According to a report from Spanish outlet AS, via Sport Witness, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has personally contacted Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon over a potential move to north London – and the defender’s pedigree leaves little wonder why the club are now taking an interest.
Indeed, per this report, Reguilon is attracting interest from Spurs, Chelsea and Man United – with the Lilywhites now allegedly on the ‘lookout‘ over his signature.
Should Spurs sign Reguilon for £31.7 million?
Yes, worth every penny
No, Levy would never sanction a move
Spending last campaign on loan at Sevilla, the youngster thoroughly impressed under manager Julen Lopetegui, starting 29 La Liga matches for the club and helping them to a Europa League triumph over Inter Milan.
Now, due to his noteworthy outings, clubs are considering a move despite his £31.7 million valuation – and AS now claim Mourinho is attempting to jump ahead in the queue.
The paper report, as relayed by Sport Witness, states that Tottenham’s manager is personally trying to persuade Reguilon over a move, and it’s little wonder why considering the Portuguese has been a big fan in the past.
When doing punditry work, covering two El Clasicos back in 2019 for beIN Sports via molineuxmix, Mourinho chastised many of the Real Madrid players’ performances over the defeats to Barcelona – but one man who received his admiration was none other than Reguilon.
Indeed, the ex-Chelsea boss praised his ‘desire‘ during the encounter, and now it appears Mourinho would like to bring that same energy to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
A marauding full-back who is adept on the overlap, Reguilon averages more crosses into the box than Spurs star Son Heung-min, potentially evidence that he can also provide much needed-threat going forward (WhoScored).
