Watch: Pinpoint Reguilon assist has Spurs fans fearing Real buy-back
Spurs landed Reguilon from Real Madrid this summer in a deal worth around £28million. The Spain international had also attracted interest from Manchester United, but only Tottenham were willing to agree to a buy-back clause in the transfer, with Real still clearly impressed by Reguilon.
According to football.london, Real can re-sign Reguilon in the summer of either 2021 or 2022 in a deal that would net Tottenham around £15million profit.
The 23-year-old has already shown he is willing to do the dirty work – we branded this recovery tackle Jose Mourinho’s wet dream – but he has mainly got the eye thanks to his threat going forward, with a goal and two assists to his name at Spurs already.
While on international duty with Spain, Reguilon registered another pinpoint assist with a cross from the left to allow Gerard Moreno to snatch a late equaliser against Switzerland.
The cross had Spurs fans drooling on Twitter, but also prompted their fears that Real are going to eventually activate their buy-back clause.
Great assist from Reguilon
Really hope he stays at Spurs but surely Madrid will have him back 👀pic.twitter.com/0g6DJ8PdZ9

If you look at the state of Marcelo for Real Madrid this season too it makes the Reguilon sale look even more mental
