Antonio Conte won’t stop Sergio Reguilon leaving this summer if Tottenham receive a suitable offer, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
Reguilon has been Spurs’ first choice for the majority of his two seasons since signing from Real Madrid in 2020, although there have recently been doubts over his future.
What is the latest news about Reguilon?
When Reguilon joined Tottenham, Madrid included a £27.5million buyout clause in the deal, meaning there were always rumors of a potential return to the Spanish capital.
In his first few months in the Premier League, it would have been a disaster for Spurs, with Reguilon getting off to a flying start in English football.
The defender played 36 times in his debut season, bagging an impressive six assists, including one on his debut against Chelsea.
But Reguilon has been unable to start in 2021-22, and until Ryan Sessegnon’s recent injury he had lost his place at left-back to the former Fulham youngster.
Consequently, Football Insider believe Antonio Conte is still not fully convinced by the Spain international and would be open to letting him go this summer. Furthermore, fabrice romano recently reported that a host of European clubs, including Barcelona, are watching him.
Reguilon has started the last three games since Sessegnon suffered the injury, but O’Rourke doesn’t think Conte would stand in the way of a possible summer exit.
What did O’Rourke say about Reguilon?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “I think if the offer was there or if Real Madrid decided to take the buyout option, I’m sure Conte wouldn’t stand in his way and use the money to improve his options. defensive.”

Should Tottenham cash in on Reguilon?
During Reguilon’s early days at the club, Tottenham seemed to have found a top attacking full-back and finally a replacement for Danny Rose.
However, Reguilon’s form has been up and down lately and he’s struggling to meet the demands of playing as a full-back in a Conte side.
Against Brighton and West Ham he missed two golden chances having been played by Harry Kane, and is lucky Sessegnon is unavailable or his starting spot would be in serious jeopardy.
Therefore, if Tottenham receive a suitable offer for his services this summer, taking advantage of him and giving Conte the chance to level up could work well in the long run.
