Last week, we carried a report from AS, who explained Chelsea are one of the ‘main candidates’ to sign Sergio Reguilón.

The Real Madrid left-back is on loan at Sevilla, where he has impressed under the orders of Julen Lopetegui.

He has three goals and five assists in all competitions, which includes an assist in his side’s 2-1 victory over Manchester United in the Europa League semi-final.

Today’s edition of AS claims Real Madrid ‘like’ the 23-year-old, especially after what he has done at Sevilla.

However, the ‘doors are closed’ for the defender to return to the Santiago Bernabéu because he will not be included in Zinedine Zidane’s plans for the next season. The Frenchman wants to continue relying on Marcelo and Ferland Mendy.

The economic crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has seen the La Liga winners consider cashing in on the fullback’s sale this summer. Real Madrid’s idea is to sell him for €25m and include a buyback option. 

Napoli ‘want him’, but Reguilón prefers a move to the Premier League.

Chelsea get a mention and AS add Frank Lampard’s side are ‘in the lead’ to acquire his services because the Blues can offer Champions League football.

With Real Madrid willing to cash in on Reguilón and Chelsea ahead in the race, a deal is there to be completed if the west London club can meet the Spanish side’s demands.
