According to a report by Diario GOL, Real Madrid could try and bring Sergio Reguilon back to the club at the end of the season, less than 12 months after parting ways with the left-back.
The £28m Tottenham paid to sign Reguilon from Real Madrid in the summer is looking like a major bargain with the defender having established himself as a key part of the current Spurs side.
However, Real Madrid did insert a buy-back clause in the deal for the 23-year-old which they can activate until the summer of 2022.
AS reported last month that the Spanish international’s performances in North London have not gone unnoticed in the Spanish capital but Real Madrid are unlikely to activate his buy-back clause while Zinedine Zidane remains in charge.
However, Diario GOL claim that Marcelo’s poor form and Fernland Mendy’s lack of consistency might have led to the Spanish giants changing their mind on Reguilon.
The report claims that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is open to the idea of bringing Reguilon back to the club.
Spurs Web Opinion
If Zinedine Zidane is still at Real Madrid next season (which is a big ‘if’ considering Madrid’s lack of consistency this season), then I do not think they are likely to make a move for Reguilon. However, if the Frenchman departs, then I can see the La Liga club activating his buy-back clause, and the Tottenham defender might just fancy going back to his boyhood club and fighting it out for a starting birth.
