After several reports indicated that Manchester United were the team interested in Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilón, Tottenham Hotspur have swooped in, seemingly out of nowhere, to agree a deal. According to Fabrizio Romano, they have reached a £30 million agreement as the final fee, conceding both the buy-back and pre-emption clauses.
Personal terms have also reportedly been agreed with just the paperwork left to sign.
Spurs Agree Deal for Sergio Reguilón
The Perfect Steal
By reportedly stealing Sergio Reguilón from under the nose of Manchester United, Spurs have solved their left-back problem. Danny Rose, once Mr consistent in a Spurs shirt, has become the forgotten man. Ben Davies seems to be the starter under Mourinho, but, in all honesty, hasn’t shown the quality needed down the left flank.
Sergio Reguilón offers the attacking ability in which all modern-day fullbacks need, bombing down the wing before whipping in a dangerous cross. He’ll fit right in with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson in the Premier League.
He will arrive at Spurs with the added boost of winning mentality, too, after helping Sevilla to Europa League glory.
A Morale Boost for Spurs Fans
Following the Amazon Prime documentary, All or Nothing, Spurs fans were as optimistic as ever. That optimism, however, was soon sucked out of them by opening day Mourinho ball as Spurs suffered a 1-0 defeat to Everton. They needed something to quickly bring back hope after a dismal opening day display.
The reported signing of Reguilón brings that hope that Spurs can attract the big players despite not qualifying for the Champions League. Mourinho has the recipe to create a top-four side; he has proven that in the past. Now, he has the ingredients and must deliver Champions League football by the end of the season.
