According to a report from the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in joining the race to sign wanted Real Madrid defender Sergio Reguilon amid reports linking him with a move to Man United – and manager Jose Mourinho is allegedly a huge admirer of the Spaniard.
Reguilon, who enjoyed a stellar stint on loan at Sevilla last season, helping the La Liga outfit clinch a Europa League title as well as a fourth placed finish level with Atletico Madrid (Sky Sports), is now attracting deserved attention from England.
Should Spurs compete with Man United to sign Reguilon?
Yes, absolute necessity
No, waste of time
Specifically, the Daily Mail report that both Man United and Tottenham are showing a firm interest in the 23-year-old who doesn’t seem to have a future at the Bernabeu – with the Galacticos valuing his services at around £25 million.
Indeed, as per this update, Spurs are on the hunt for a new left-back as an alternate option to Wales international Ben Davies – and the Lilywhites are now contemplating a swoop for the ‘excellent’ Reguilon alongside United.
Chairman Daniel Levy would apparently be able to meet his £25m price, with recent rumours indicating that manager Jose Mourinho is a huge admirer of the youngster.
Diario AS, via Sport Witness, wrote that Spurs’ boss had ‘personally’ phoned the left-back in an attempt to sway him with a move to north London – potentially trying to get an edge over his former club in the race for Reguilon’s signature.
Averaging more crosses into the box than any Tottenham player over last season, as per WhoScored, Reguilon’s tendency to overlap and provide a threat out wide could be exactly what Spurs need from a full-back as they look to provide star striker Harry Kane with more service.
It is yet to be seen whether Spurs will beat United to sign the player, but an incentive could be there given his steadily growing reputation on the continent.
