Transfer News: Real Madrid dormant regarding buy-back clause for Tottenham Hotspur defender Sergio Reguilon
According to Football.london journalist Alasdair Gold, Real Madrid have not indicated any intention to activate the buy-back clause for Tottenham Hotspur defender, Sergio Reguilon, which would see Spurs make a £15million profit.
The Spaniard was signed by Jose Mourinho last summer after his impressive showing in La Liga. Madrid recognized his potential and hence, put a buy-back clause in his contract, which they can activate this summer as well as the next.
But in some good news for Spurs fans, there are no indications of that happening right now. Reguilon was an important part of Jose Mourinho and Ryan Mason’s squad last season.
He racked up 27 league appearances, which could have been more if not for fitness issues. And it is evident that Spurs have him in their plans under Nuno Espirito Santo as well.
Reguilon situation in control for now
If Gold is to be believed, then Takehiro Tomiyasu, a potential transfer target for Spurs, could join the club in a role that will focus on giving more freedom to Reguilon on the left-hand side. An excerpt from the Football.london report reads:
“Spurs’ plan for Tomiyasu is that, while capable of getting into advanced positions, his strength lies in his defensive work and he would be able to tuck inside to create a back three in possession to allow Sergio Reguilon to bomb on down the left as more of a wing-back to create a devastating left-hand side to the attack with Son Heung-min”
Reguilon shared game time down the left-hand side with Ben Davies. The Welshman is more than capable of giving Reguilon a run for his money.

However, it seems likely that the 24-year-old Spaniard will feature more regularly on the team sheet next season. But the anxiety surrounding his Spurs future will continue to linger until his buy-back clause expires, which will happen next year.
