While news of Gareth Bale’s impending return to Tottenham Hotspur has dominated the headlines, the North Londoners also seem to have got another real coup by securing the services of Sergio Reguilon.
The left-back had an outstanding campaign on loan at Sevilla last season and was voted the best player in his position in La Liga.
Reports indicate that Spurs saw off competition from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton to snap up the 23-year-old, who is expected to accompany Gareth Bale to London today to finalise his transfer (Sky Sports).
They reveal that Spurs have agreed to pay a fee of around £25 million for Reguillon but that Real Madrid have inserted a clause that would allow them to sign him back for around £35m.
However, the report explains that the clause will only be valid for two years, which means Los Blancos can only sign re-sign the defender for that price until the summer of 2022.

It looks like our willingness to include the buy-back clause in the deal is what gave us an advantage over Manchester United. Some might argue that this is just a glorified loan but it could potentially work out perfectly for us as Reguilon’s arrival can help Sessegnon get the game time he needs on loan. Jose Mourinho will be hoping that the former Fulham man is ready to be a starter for Spurs, if and when Madrid return for Reguilon.
