Tottenham Hotspur may have an ace up their sleeve in their reported pursuit of Sergio Ramos, with Sergio Reguilon telling AS that he would recommend Spurs to his countryman if he was asked.
The London Evening Standard reported this month that Jose Mourinho is monitoring Ramos’s situation. The centre-back is out of contract at Real Madrid at the end of the season. According to Marca, he is on £225,000-a-week.
Mourinho, of course, worked with the defender during his time in the Spanish capital. And it appears that he may be hoping to make the 34-year-old the third player to move from Los Blancos to North London.
Reguilon was asked about Ramos’s contract situation in an interview. And the Tottenham left-back admitted that he expected the captain to stay.
“I think that in the end it will end up being solved,” he told AS. “Both for Madrid and Sergio. Seen from the outside, I don’t see a Madrid without Ramos.”
The left-back was subsequently asked whether he would attempt to convince Ramos to follow him to England.
And after joking that Ramos would not listen to him, he was then asked if he would tell the veteran to join Spurs if he was specifically approached for advice.
“Yes of course,” he added, when asked if he would recommend Tottenham if approached. “In fact the other day I was talking to him.”
Of course, Reguilon is clearly not expecting to have any influence on Ramos’s decision on his future. But he is surely still helping Tottenham stake a claim to sign their target if he becomes available.
With Mourinho, Bale and Reguilon at Spurs, Ramos has plenty of links to the club. And if he does consider joining them, he will surely reach out to those familiar faces at some stage.
