Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon has completed a move to English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.
According to football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the Spaniard will join the Jose Mourinho side on a €30m fee with his parent club having the option to take him back after inserting a buy-back clause on his contract.
The deal will definitely irk the Man United fans who had the hopes that their club would sign the player after he had been linked with them for the better part of the past two weeks.
United, however, failed to agree on the buyback clause-a move that saw the player join their Premier League rivals with reports rife that Gareth Bale might join the Spaniard at Spurs soon.
“Sergio Reguilon to Tottenham, here we go soon! The agreement has been reached on last few hours with Real Madrid for €30m as a final fee. Reguilon agreed on personal terms with Spurs and accepted to join also after talks with Manchester United. Only paperwork to be signed,” Romano Tweeted.
“Tottenham have conceded to Real Madrid both clauses they’ve asked for Reguilon: buyback and pre-emption. Man United have always refused any clause to bring back the player - it was the main issue.”
