With the Sergio Reguilon saga having a big turnaround today, reports from Spain now say he’s close to joining Tottenham Hotspur.
The latest story from AS claims Spurs have ‘taken the lead’ for the Real Madrid left-back, and could sign him for around €30m.
The reason José Mourinho’s side could win the competition against Manchester United is that unlike the Red Devils, Tottenham accepted a buy-back clause from Real Madrid.
According to AS, the Galacticos should have a chance to bring the player back to the Santiago Bernabeu for €5m or €10m more than what they’re making with the sale. That means €35m or €40m, and could be triggered in the next two years.
The outlet says there was also some competition from Inter Milan, but Spurs are seen as a more attractive option due to the Premier League factor, and also for handling the negotiations very well.
As reported by AS earlier today, it’s once again said the negotiations had ‘direct contact’ from José Mourinho and Daniel Levy.
