The Sergio Reguilon to Manchester United reports have been frequent from the Spanish media, even if they seemed to be constantly repeating themselves.
Earlier today, Mundo Deportivo reported the left-back was ‘very close’ to signing for the club, but there was one key issue still to overcome: A buyback clause.
Manchester United didn’t want one, and Real Madrid were pushing for it. The same report said Tottenham were ‘very attentive’ to the situation.
Now things have turned on their head, with Reguilon looking closer to signing for Jose Mourinho’s side. AS report the manager and Daniel Levy have been in talks for the Madrid player in recent hours.
It’s stated Tottenham’s ‘senior managers’ are involved, as everyone tries to get the signing over the line. Spurs would be willing to accept a buyback clause, which makes all the difference to Madrid, and perhaps to the player too.
The Spanish media have made clear that Reguilon dreams of succeeding at Real Madrid, and was aware that moving to Manchester United without a clause would pretty much kill that.
Ole Gunnar’s Solskjaer’s side wouldn’t even ‘contemplate’ a buyback clause, with AS saying the club felt their ‘prestige’ made it ‘illogical’ to not have complete control over a player they signed.
