Some Spurs fans have laughed off suggestions that Real Madrid could enter into talks with Tottenham over reducing Sergio Reguilon’s buy-back clause. 

Spurs paid £28m to sign Reguilon from Real Madrid in the summer of 2020, with the La Liga giants inserting a buy-back clause in the deal that could be activated until the summer of 2022 (Football.London).

Defensa Central reported this week that Madrid are planning on making a potential attempt to re-sign the left-back next summer.

However, the report explained that Los Blancos are not prepared to pay the €40m (£33.9m) buy-back clause stipulated in the 24-year-old’s contract as they do not believe he has developed sufficiently in North London to warrant that fee.

Instead, it was asserted that Madrid wish to hold talks with Spurs to try to reduce the buy-back clause to between €30m (£25.4m) and €33m (£28m). 

Reacting to the report, some Spurs fans on social media were confident that there was no way Daniel Levy would entertain reducing Reguilon’s buy-back clause.










Spurs Web Opinion 

The only reason for Spurs to accept a fee lower than the stipulated buy-back clause is if they deem Reguilon to not be good enough and decide that it would be in the club’s best interest to cash in on him. If the left-back builds on his decent start to the season, there is no way the club would contemplate selling him for less than the £34m clause.
