Sergio Reguilón left Real Madrid and completed a permanent switch to Tottenham Hotspur in 2020.

As a part of the agreement between the two clubs, Los Blancos have an option to buyback the left-back.

According to Defensa Central, the clause to re-sign the 24-year-old will come into effect from next summer.

With Marcelo’s expected departure at the end of the season and Miguel Gutiérrez’s lack of experience, the Spurs fullback’s return to the club would fit into Real Madrid’s plans.

The figure to take the player back is set at €40m, but the La Liga side find the price ‘too high’, given the defender has ‘not made a notable leap’ at the north London club.

Since the Spain international’s development with Tottenham has ‘not been as great as expected’, Carlo Ancelotti’s side will ‘try to negotiate with Daniel Levy’ to ‘lower the price’ to €30-33m.

From their past experience of signing Luka Modrić and Gareth Bale, Real Madrid know first hand that Levy is a tough negotiator.

Although they have an intention to lower the price, the Spanish giants are aware it is a ‘very complicated’ to get a discount of €7-10m from Levy.
