Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of signing Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid. Several media, including transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, have claimed that the Spanish defender has agreed terms with Jose Mourinho’s side and that he will be confirmed as a new Tottenham player before the end of the week. Spurs will be paying around €30m for Reguilon.
The 23-year-old left-back was also in talks with Manchester United but the Red Devils failed to reach an agreement with Madrid. Main reason was that Man United rejected Madrid’s demand to add a buy-back clause into the deal but also a pre-emption clause, which means that Tottenham will not be able to sell Reguilon to another club without the approval of Madrid.
United rejected the clauses, but Tottenham have accepted and put them into the deal. Reguilon is expected to travel to England on Wednesday to undergo a medical with Tottenham. If he passes the medical he will then sign a multi-year contract. Reguilon will become the club’s third signing of the summer after they already signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton and Matt Doherty from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
