Latest Real Madrid buy-back option on Reguilon is good news for Tottenham
By Bruce Grove -

Real Madrid inserted a buy-back clause in the deal that took Sergio Reguilon to Tottenham in the summer.

The Spanish left-back had helped Sevilla to win the Europa League last season while on loan there.

His performances for them prompted Tottenham to add him to their squad as they hoped to win a trophy this season.

They have failed to achieve that and a return to the top four is still very much out of their hands at the moment.

Reguilon has been one of their best players in this campaign, but adding a buy-back clause to his deal means that Madrid is always going to think about taking him back.

It seems that they sold him because they needed cash after seeing their pockets get hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

However, a recent report from Defensa Central will give Spurs a sigh of relief over the Spain international.

The report says that Madrid has discovered another jewel from their production line whom they expect to be better than Reguilon.

Miguel Gutiérrez has been given some first-team chances by Zinedine Zidane in this campaign and has already made two La Liga appearances.

He is still behind Ferland Mendy and Marcelo at the Bernabeu, but the report says Madrid is confident that he would become a first-teamer and because of that, there is no need to bring Reguilon back.

It’s impossible not to like Reggie, a great character, great footballer and he’s ours.

That’s good news yes Reggie has been erratic at times, his defending needs to improve but he’s been one of the better players this year and he’ll only improve with time

Show me an attacking fullback who isn’t defensively erratic these days.

Great fullbacks of the past like Maldini were defenders who were good at getting forward a bit too, now fullbacks seem more like wingers or wing-backs that defend, only when they really have no other choice but to muck in and help. That blend of being decent at both seems to be rarely perfectly balanced. Neither Doherty or Aurier are good enough defensively to be considered top players in that role. Remember Walker and his brain parts? It’s a tough position to play these days.

Walker’s brain parts? While I’m sure it’s not what you intended, somehow it’s very apt, especially with his extra curricular activities during lock down etc!

Stuart Pearce as well. Good, no nonsense defender first, who was ok venturing forward on occasion.
