According to a report from Mundo Deportivo (print edition 26/03/2023), Sergio Reguilon is likely to return to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer after failing to make an impact at Atletico Madrid during his loan spell in Spain.
Reguilon left Real Madrid for Tottenham in the summer of 2020 and enjoyed a fairly positive first season in North London.
He played 36 games in all competitions for the Lilywhites in the 2020/21 season (Transfermarkt).
The Spaniard saw his game time limited under Antonio Conte however, and eventually joined Atletico Madrid last summer for a season-long loan.
Things haven’t gone to plan since his return to Spain, with injury limiting Reguilon to just five appearances this term and just 84 minutes of action in La Liga (Transfermarkt).
Despite overcoming a sports hernia recently, Reguilon is now out on the sidelines once more with a hamstring injury.
The continued absence of the 26-year-old have now apparently all but ended any hope of a permanent move to Atletico.
The report from Mundo Deportivo suggests Atletico manager Diego Simeone has been frustrated by how little Reguilon has featured this campaign.
It is thought Simeone was keen to call on the player only to find him back “in the infirmary” once again.
As for Reguilon’s future, it seems he is “expected to pack his bags” come the summer and head back to North London.
It is not known what will happen to the player at Spurs either, but the report makes it clear that Atletico are not interested in keeping hold of him.

It’s highly likely we will have to keep hold of Reguilon next season.
He wasn’t exactly fighting off clubs last summer, and with all these injury issues, the queue is likely to be even smaller this time around.
Let’s just hope we can get some use out of him, otherwise, he will become nothing but deadwood in our squad.
