Tottenham gave huge boost as Real Madrid ignore buyout clause | TEAM


Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of keeping defender Sergio Reguilon were given a huge chance in the arm, according to a report from Madrid.

Reguilon arrived from Real Madrid last summer for £ 28million after impressing on his one-season loan at Sevilla. His form for Spurs this season has been impressive and Jose Mourinho’s rookie looks like a shrewd signing. Fees could reach £ 32million with additions after Reguilon asserted himself as Spurs’ first choice left-back.

Real, however, made sure to have a buyout option on the deal and the player has previously admitted, somewhat worryingly, that he could return.

“Madrid is my home and the place where I grew up and they gave me everything. The future is not known but this possibility exists ”, he declared in November.

The 24-year-old also made it clear that it was not his choice to leave Madrid and rather the decision of the LaLiga club.

Talk to Onda Cero, relayed by Libertad Digital, he declared: “I am not in Madrid because it is something which did not depend on me.

“My conscience is very clear. You can’t be frustrated with decisions you can’t make. I couldn’t speak with [Zinedine] Zidane. “

Now, with 31 appearances under his belt, Reguilon has surprisingly been lost from Real’s radar.

Real Madrid, who have been pressed to sign him again this summer, have doubts, according to Defensa Central Going through Witness of sport.

The title of the point of sale reads: “Miguel Gutiérrez will close the door when Reguilon returns ”.

Leeds’ interest in Gutierrez

The Madrid outlet suggests that Real are so happy with the progress of the 19-year-old Gutierrez that they will drop their pursuit for Reguilon.

Gutiérrez has been impressive for the youth squad and the reserve side at Real and was recently called up to the first squad.

The local defender has attracted the interest of a number of clubs wanting to loan him. Mourinho even tried to sign the youngster while at Manchester United, the report claims.

Last month, TBEN reported that Leeds United were looking to get Gutierrez backing all-rounder Stuart Dallas.

However, it looks like Madrid have changed their minds on Gutierrez. Now they believe he is a player with enormous potential.

Real have made it clear that the youngster is not for sale. I think he will become a better player than Reguilon.

So this is good news for Tottenham as the emergence of Gutierrez will block Reguilon’s possible return to Madrid.
