Jose Mourinho contacts Sergio Reguilon to hijack Manchester United move

According to a report from Spanish publication OK Diario (h/t Express), Jose Mourinho has personally contacted Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon, to convince him to join Tottenham Hotspur over Manchester United.

A product of the Real Madrid academy, Reguilon made his breakthrough into the senior team in 2018/19 under Julen Lopetegui. However, upon the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager, the Spaniard lost his place in the starting XI.

And following the arrival of Ferland Mendy last summer, he was loaned out to Sevilla, where he reunited with Lopetegui. During his stint with the club, Reguilon scaled great heights in 2019/20, as he was named the best left-back in La Liga for the season, while he also won the UEFA Europa League with the club.

Reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the left-back has been offered to Mourinho’s former employers United. However, the Portuguese isn’t one to go down without fight and in order to snap up the 23-year-old, has contacted him personally to convince him to join Spurs. (h/t Express)

At the moment, Tottenham have Ben Davies and Danny Rose as the senior left-back options, while Ryan Sessegnon is also at the manager’s disposal. In addition, academy ace Dennis Cirkin has been given opportunities in the pre-season.

However, Rose is expected to be sold this summer, while Sessegnon may be used in a more attacking role. This would warrant the arrival of another left-back to push Davies for the starting berth.
