Sergio Reguilon could be going back to Real Madrid as the Spanish giants are looking to activate his buy-back clause. The left-back joined his current side Tottenham Hotspur in 2020 and has been a regular for them.
The latest transfer rumour was reported by Defensa Central. According to the report, Real Madrid is interested in bringing bach Reguilon as the club is facing an injury crisis in the defence.
When Reguilon move to Tottenham last year, Real Madrid had inserted a €40m buy-back clause on him. The clause is valid for a period of two years, and Madrid is considering the possibility to sign him back. However, Los Blancos are further looking to reduce the transfer fee to €33m, which will not go well with Tottenham.
REAL MADRID BACKTRACKING ON REGUILON DECISION
Reguilon came through the Real Madrid academy. But the presence of Marcelo in the team made it very difficult for the Spaniard to get into the playing 11. He only appeared 22 times for his boyhood club across all competitions.
The 24-year-old was allowed to move to Sevilla on a loan deal in the 2019/20 season. This move became a breakthrough for Reguilon as he was a regular in his new club. The Spaniard went on to play 38 times for Sevilla across all competition, scoring 3 times for them. He also was crucial for part of the team in their Europa League triumph.
While many believe his success with Sevilla would help him to get into the Real Madrid team, the club decided to go the other way. The club sold him to Tottenham in the summer of 2020. Since then the player has gone on to play 45 times for the Lily Whites across all competition.
Real Madrid is now backtracking their decision as they are considering signing Reguilon back. Rather than trying to pay the €40m in his buy-back clause, Los Blancos are trying to negotiate for a lower fee. But this will not be easy as Tottenham would not want to let go of their player. Thus it will be a tough negotiation for Real Madrid if they are serious about bringing back Reguilon.
