According to Spanish publication, Defensa Central, Real Madrid are planning to hold talks with Tottenham Hotspur over potentially re-signing Sergio Reguilon.

Reguilon arrived at Tottenham from Real Madrid in the summer of 2020, with Los Blancos inserting a buy-back clause in the deal that could be activated until the summer of 2022.

The left-back had a good start to his Spurs career but, much like the rest of the side, went off-the-boil in the second half of last season.

The Spanish international has given a much better account of himself, particularly defensively, under Nuno Espirito Santo this season and his improved form has seen him make it back into Luis Enrique’s Spain squad. 

Defensa Central have now claimed that Madrid do indeed want to bring Reguilon back to the Santigo Bernabeu.

It is explained that the La Liga giants would have to pay €40m (£33.9m) to Spurs to re-sign the defender as per the buy-back clause.

However, Madrid allegedly view that figure as being too excessive, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side not believing the left-back has progressed enough at Spurs to warrant that price.

It is said that the Spanish club will hold talks with Daniel Levy to try to reduce the buy-back clause to between €30m (£25.4m) and €33m (£28m).

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no reason for Levy to agree to reduce the buy-back clause, particularly given that Reguilon is showing signs of settling into English football in his second season at the club.

However, I do worry that Madrid will activate the buy-back clause next summer and that Reguilon might wish to return to his boyhood club, particularly if we fail to get back into the Champions League.
