Tottenham: £27.5m Mourinho signing could leave Hotspur Way

Sergio Reguilon could leave Tottenham this summer, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Spain international is only in his second season at Spurs but he has already been linked with a move back to Spain.

What did O’Rourke say about Reguilon?

Reguilon has generally been first-choice on the left since he signed from Real Madrid in the summer of 2020.

However, Reguilon’s position at the club remains uncertain ahead of the transfer window reopening for business in a couple of months.

Do you know this obscure player Tottenham signed in the January transfer window?

Not only might the 25-year-old return to Madrid, who could activate his £27.5m buy-back clause that was inserted in his move to Tottenham, but rivals Barcelona are now also keen on his services.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the left wing-back is attracting plenty of interest from around Europe, with Xavi’s side currently monitoring his situation.

Reguilon has made 67 appearances for Tottenham, 31 of which have come this season, but O’Rourke reckons that he could leave at the end of the campaign.

What did O’Rourke say about Reguilon?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “There’s a real possibility that Reguilon could return to Spain this summer.

“Real Madrid have a buy-back clause and there’s interest from Barcelona, so I think Conte will be in the market for a left wing-back to try and improve the squad.”

Would losing Reguilon be a mistake?

If this question was asked this time 12 months ago, there would be very few Spurs fans that would want Reguilon to be moved on.

Despite an injury-hit first campaign in English football, he proved himself as a capable full-back at both ends of the pitch, chipping in with an impressive six assists in 36 games.

Reguilon’s attacking output this season has improved, with five goal contributions in 25 top-flight appearances, but his form has dropped quite dramatically, which explains why he’s been in a tussle with Ryan Sessegnon to become Antonio Conte’s number one left wing-back.

Therefore, if Tottenham can get a decent fee for Reguilon and reinvest that money in bringing in a replacement, losing him might not be as bad as once feared.
