As part of a package deal from Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur announced Sergio Reguilon’s permanent transfer for the next five seasons. 

Spanish left-back Sergio Reguilon is finally a Tottenham Hotspur player. The North London club was trying to make this one happen alongside another loan from Real Madrid for the past week. Initially, Reguilon seemed like he would go to Manchester United but Jose Mourinho had other plans.

The Portuguese manager wanted to sign world-class players in order to compete against the rest of the Premier League clubs. This prompted him to finally get Daniel Levy to pay €30 million for the player’s transfer.

Real Madrid would only agree to sell him if they had a buying option when Reguilon decided to leave the Spurs. Manchester United refused these terms but Tottenham didn’t. This is why the Spanish giants agreed to sell him to North London. 

Tottenham’s announcement. 

The Spurs made the official announcement via their website: “A product of the youth system at the Bernabeu, Sergio spent two separate spells on loan at Spanish Segunda División B side UD Logroñés between 2015 and 2017 before returning to become a regular for Real Madrid’s ‘Castilla’ second-string team, also in Segunda División B, in 2017/18, playing a number of games as their captain. 

“He made his first team debut for Real against CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League in October, 2018, before earning his La Liga debut against Real Valladolid the following month and remained a regular member of their matchday squad during the 2018/19 season as Los Blancos won the FIFA Club World Cup. He made 22 appearances for Real Madrid in total. 

“Sergio impressed during a season-long loan at Sevilla last season, where he made 38 appearances in all competitions and scored three goals as they won the UEFA Europa League and finished fourth in La Liga. He played five times in Sevilla’s European triumph, starting the final as they beat Internazionale Milano 3-2 in Cologne and earning a place in the UEFA Europa League Squad of the Season.”
