Real Madrid and Tottenham have agreed to a settlement for Madrid’s Spain international left-back Sergio Reguilon to be transferred to the north-London based club.
Reguilon entered the Real Madrid first team in the 2018-19 season, playing 22 games while he moved ahead of the Brazilian left-back Marcelo in the pecking order.
However, when Zinedine Zidane returned, Marcelo came back into the favor and the signing of Ferland Mendy in 2019 saw Reguilon loaned to Sevilla. He made 38 appearances and scored three goals as Sevilla finishing fourth in La Liga and winning the Europa League for the sixth time in the club’s history.
Now, as per the deal, Spurs are willing to spend 30 million euros for Reguilon until the end of June 2025. However, as per the agreement, Real can buy him back for 40 million euros before the summer of 2022, say reports.
The 23-year-old’s performance last season helped him earn his first cap for Spain on September 6th, which he started with a 4-0 UEFA Nations League win against Ukraine for his country.
According to Spanish media, a deal has also been reached between Real Madrid and Tottenham to see Gareth Bale go back to White Hart Lane, seven years after he left the club to join Real Madrid.
The 31-year-old Bale recently said that he would like to return to the Premier League and also revealed that Madrid had prevented previous attempts to leave.
It has now become clear that players who have a strained relationship with coach Zinedine Zidane over the last few months, Real Madrid paid only part of the wages of a player.
