Sergio Reguilon has enjoyed a solid start to his Tottenham career, but a possible return to Real Madrid isn’t off the table either.

Reguilon has refused to rule out a return to Real Madrid after leaving the Spanish club last summer for Tottenham in a €30m transfer.

The 23-year-old lost favor when Zinedine Zidane returned for a second spell in March 2019, leading him to spend last season on loan at Sevilla. He impressed overall by helping the club to a top-four LaLiga finish and a Europa League title.

But Zidane’s preference for Ferland Mendy and Marcelo as his left-backs meant Reguilon had no place in the Real Madrid manager’s plans.

Therefore, he signed up for Spurs in the summer and has become an instant regular under Jose Mourinho in the Premier League.

The option to return to his hometown club, however, remains as Real Madrid have a buy-back clause in his Spurs contract.

“Madrid is my home and where I grew up,” Reguilon told told ‘El Larguero’ on Cadena Ser.

“In the future, you never know but the possibility is there… I didn’t speak to the boss (Zidane), it was more with the club. I know what they think of me, I had to take a decision.

“Time will tell. I didn’t ask for explanations.”

The Spain international also admitted he’s still adapting to the darkness of London.

“I haven’t adapted to the time in England, but at five you see everything dark,” said Reguilon.

“It’s a different league but I adapt well to new situations. I can make more transitions in the game.

“But if I have to perform I have to perform in Spain and wherever. With all the great teammates. Son [Heung-min] and [Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg are good guys. There’s a good group.”
