Take from Twitterspanish reporter Carles Domènech – also backed by Sport – has now dropped a big Sergio Reguilon exit hint for Tottenham supporters.
The Lowdown: Reguilon worried?
Despite being called ‘one of the best left-backs in the world’ by former Spurs keeper Paul Robinson at one point, Lilywhites boss Antonio Conte began imagining an alternative to Reguilon at fellow left-back Ryan Sessegnon before the latter’s most recent injury.
Since being unceremoniously taken off after 28 minutes in a 2-0 home loss to Wolves last month, the Englishman has continued to impress with stunning performances in Conte’s full-back line-up. That might have been a slight concern for Reguilon who may now have competition in the position for Spurs.
His former club Real Madrid has a £34m buyout clause in the deal that took him to Tottenham in 2020, so there is a way out of North London for the 25-year-old .
However, the Galacticos aren’t the only club interested, with Domènech now dropping a major hint on Twitter implicating their El Clasico rivals Barcelona.
The last: a journalist lets hear a clue about Reguilon…
Speaking to social media, the Spanish source said to ‘be prepared’ as there are ‘plenty of possibilities’ for Reguilon to share Barcelona’s left flank with defender Jordi Alba.
Domenech Explain: “Can you imagine Jordi Alba and Sergio Reguilón sharing the left wing? So get ready because there are so many possibilities.
The verdict: big claim…
The Spaniard joining his former La Liga rivals would certainly come as a shock, with Domenech’s claim apparently causing a stir on social networks.
From Tottenham’s perspective, they arguably cannot afford to lose Reguilon despite having an alternative to Sessegnon. The latter appears to be far too injury-prone to count without a rotation option, drawing attention to Conte’s reliance on the Spain international.
With both interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid holding a buyout clause, this summer could be very interesting as far as the defender’s future at Tottenham is concerned.
