Real Madrid want to buy back Sergio Reguilón from Tottenham next summer after his impressive performances for them this season.
Reguilón joined Tottenham in a £27m deal in the summer, having elected to leave the Bernabeu upon discovering that he would not get the regular playing time he wanted and had enjoyed in a loan spell with Sevilla the previous season.
He’s proven to be a big hit with Spurs since, establishing himself as first choice under Jose Mourinho and making 11 appearances in all competitions so far.
He’s earned near-unanimous praise as well, racking up three assists and playing a key role in Tottenham’s bright start to the season.
That’s seemingly not gone unnoticed back in Spain, with Eduardo Inda reporting that Real Madrid are keen to bring him back to the Bernabeu.
Appearing on El Chiringuito, Bernabeu Digital report him saying that Madrid “wants to buy back” the Spanish left-back as a replacement for Marcelo.
The Brazilian is apparently struggling, and his latest performances ‘do not convince’ either Zinedine Zidane, the club or the fans and they could all accept his departure.

That is something the club are looking at, and if that were to happen, Madrid would look to Tottenham and bringing Reguilón back to the club.
They insisted on a buyback clause being inserted into the deal that tool the player to Tottenham in the summer, which is currently set at €45m, although there’s no mention of whether they would be able to pay that.
It’s easy to imagine they wouldn’t given their current financial struggles at the moment, but the clause is there nonetheless.
Indeed, for now, this looks like nothing more than speculation, but if Reguilón continues to shine and Marcelo doesn’t, this idea may begin to pick up traction in the coming months.
