Sergio Reguilon has admitted that he would be open to a potential return to Real Madrid in the future but insisted that his exit was out of his hands.

Tottenham secured Reguilon for a fee of £28m, with Real Madrid inserting a buy-back clause in the contract that would allow them to re-sign him for around £43m until the summer of 2022 (Football.London).

There have been reports from Spain suggesting that the La Liga giants are looking at activating the buy-back clause at the end of the current season (El Chiringuito via Sport Witness).

When asked whether he could return to his boyhood club one day, the Tottenham star told AS: “I don’t know.

“Whenever they ask me about Madrid, I say that it has given me everything, it has always been my home. Come back one day? It doesn’t depend on me… I’m focused on my own thing, but it would be nice.”

It has been reported that Reguilon does not have the best of relationships with Zinedine Zidane (El Confidencial via The Daily Mail) .

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague previously revealed that it was Zidane who made the decision to sell the left-back as the Frenchman does not trust the 23-year-old.

Reguilon admitted that Zidane did not have a conversation with him before Madrid shipped him off to Spurs.

When asked whether he spoke to the Real Madrid boss before completing a move to North London, the defender said: “No, nothing.”

Reguilon was then asked whether he was either surprised or hurt by Zidane’s snub, to which he responded: “No, nothing surprised me.”

It sounds like there is certainly plenty of bad blood between Zidane and Reguilon. So, I am hoping that Zidane stays at Real Madrid at least for the next couple of years by which time the buy-back clause in Reguilon’s contract would have expired.
