Journalist Dean Jones has claimed that it’s possible Sergio Reguilon could leave Tottenham to join Real Madrid this summer.
Reguilon joined Spurs from Real two seasons ago, with the LaLiga side including a buyout clause worth £27.5million valid until the end of the next transfer window ( Soccer London).
The 25-year-old has featured prominently for the club but struggled to find a place under Antonio Conte, who mixed his options at left-back with Ryan Sessegnon also in consideration.
Reguilon has been linked with a return to Spain at the end of the season, with Football Insider claiming Tottenham have already generated interest in the defender, who has made 31 appearances this season (Transfermarkt).
And Jones predicts there is a “reasonable chance” that Reguilon will leave north London to return to Madrid – which he says could suit all parties.
Jones told GiveMeSport: “He did well, but he didn’t set the world on fire. It could suit all parties for him to return to Real Madrid and for him to settle there. I think there is a reasonable chance of that happening.
Boosts web opinion
Reguilon’s move to Spurs hasn’t exactly determined how many people expected or hoped for, which could make a transfer a very real possibility.
His first season produced strong performances, but he just failed to replicate that in a more advanced role under Conte.
If Real return for Reguilon, Spurs could be resigned to losing him, which could then allow them to find a player better suited to the formation.
