Tottenham agreed to two clauses Man United rejected to seal Sergio Reguilon transfer
The 23-year-old Reguilon was named the best left-back in La Liga 2019/20 after a brilliant spell on loan with Sevilla. The left-back also played a key role in their UEFA Europa League triumph last month.
However, with him being behind Marcelo and Ferland Mendy in the pecking order at Real Madrid, his future had been a subject of heavy speculation, with Tottenham and Manchester United the two clubs interested in signing him. (h/t Express)
And now, it is being claimed that Tottenham have beat their arch rivals for the signing of the Spanish international. This came about owing to the fact that Spurs were willing to agree to two of the clauses Real Madrid wanted to insert in the deal, whereas Manchester United were reluctant. (h/t Express)
The first of these clauses is a buy-back option in the deal, which would allow Real Madrid to sign him back in the future for a transfer fee of just under £37m. The second clause would allow Los Blancos to match any offer made by any team for Reguilon in the future, even if it fell below the £37m buy-back clause. (h/t Express)
Manchester United were hesitant to agree on those terms, allowing Tottenham to swoop in and seal the signature of the 23-year-old Spanish international. (h/t Express)
