Sport have revealed that Tottenham left-back Sergio Reguilon is not on Barcelona’s radar this summer.

Reguilon appears to have played his last game in a Spurs shirt, with Antonio Conte sending a clear message that the Spaniard is not part of his plans by not including him in the club’s pre-season tour to South Korea.

The 25-year-old has been mooted as a target for both Juventus (CalcioMecatoWeb) and Sevilla (Football Insider), having already spent a season on loan at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium in 2019/20.

On Wednesday, Mundo Deportivo revealed Barcelona are eyeing Reguilon as an alternative to Chelsea star Marcos Alonso this summer. The report asserted that the left-back had been offered to the Catalan giants by Spurs and the player’s agent Kia Joorabchian.

However, Sport have now dismissed that, insisting that Reguilon is not on Barcelona’s wishlist this summer. The report claims that the full-back ‘will never wear’ the Barca shirt as he is a fanatical Real Madrid fan. 

Sport add that Barca will also want to stay away from signing Reguilon, given the negative media publicity the Tottenham man’s association with Real Madrid will bring.

Spurs Web Opinion

Sport are usually much more reliable than Mundo Deportivo when it comes to news involving Barcelona. So, it would appear as if Xavi’s men are not in for the Tottenham man. I think Sevilla is Reguilon’s most likely destination this summer.
