Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on a move for Sergio Reguilon, but ESPN reports that a buy-back clause has been agreed with Real Madrid as part of the deal.
Reguilon is close to becoming Spurs’ latest signing. ESPN reports that a £27.6 million fee has been agreed, with Reguilon set to put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The report notes that the 23-year-old had been hoping to join Manchester United this summer. However, he has been won over by Spurs’ project and the interest taken in him by Jose Mourinho.
The one downside of a potential deal however, is that Tottenham have reportedly had to include a buy-back clause in the move.
ESPN notes that some of the finer details are all that stand between the move being announced.

Tottenham fans would have been desperate to see action after their weekend defeat. And a move for one of the most exciting left-backs in world football will certainly go some way to alleviating some of the supporters’ worries.
Of course, agreeing to a buy-back clause is not ideal. But it would appear that it was critical to seeing off competition for his signature.
And that should do little to take away from what has the potential to be a fantastic piece of business from Tottenham.
