Leeds can hand Tottenham a hammer blow in bid to keep Sergio Reguilon this summer
While he may not have convinved all of Tottenham Hotspur’s supporters, Sergio Reguilon has starred for the North London club on occasion this season – but Leeds United can throw a spanner in the works as Spurs desperately look to kee him.
Reguilon, 24, joined Spurs from Real Madrid last summer and has impressed on the whole during his 32 appearances for Tottenham. Signed for £28million, Football London claim Real Madrid have a clause in his Tottenham contract to re-sign him.
It means they can get him for the small-ish price of £43million this summer or in 2022 if they so please – boasting first option. But Defensa Central claim Zinedine Zidane has opted against such a deal this summer, because of 19-year-old Miguel Gutierrez.
The Spanish report states that Zidane has been impressed with Gutierrez, who has captained Raul’s Castilla side on occasions and with Marcelo requiring cover at left-back – it is claimed that Zidane believes Gutierrez is capable of doing that.
It means that Reguilon will not be brought back to Madrid this summer, according to DC. But Leeds could change that – by signing Gutierrez ahead of the summer window. TeamTalk state that Leeds are interested in signing the Spain Under-19 ace.
Leeds – who face Tottenham on Saturday at Elland Road – need a left-back with Gjanni Alioski out of contract and Stuart Dallas playing in midfield. The report claims Leeds are interested in raiding Madrid for Gutierrez, which could impact Spurs.
Gutierrez seems to be the only reason Madrid are not activating the clause to re-sign Reguilon. So, if Leeds signed Gutierrez this summer – surely that would see Madrid look to lure five-time Spain international Reguilon back to his home country?
