Transfer News: Spurs highjack Man United’s transfer of Real Madrid left back

Tottenham’s open-day lose to Everton has urged the board to act fast in the market and add some fresh faces to the lineup as soon as possible.

Jose Mourinho is up to his usual antics in the transfer market but this time Spurs are about to benefit from his late strikes in the transfer window. Sergio Reguilon, a Man United target for the past several days is now on the verge of joining the North London side.

Tottenham are working on deals to sign Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid. The move for Reguilon is likely to be more straightforward, with the Spanish left-back close to moving to Spurs in a transfer worth around £25million.

Jose’s old club Manchester United were intensely linked with a move for Reguilon over the last couple of days. Yet, as it was stated yesterday by The Top Flight, the clubs were only destined to hit a roadblock which would cause the deal to breakdown altogether.

United were and are unwilling to meet Real Madrid’s one-sided demands of paying a total of €30 million, as well as inserting a buy-back clause for a player they regard as one for the future at the Bernabéu.

All these demands to which Tottenham were more than happy to agree to, insuring they will beat their Premier League rivals to his signature.

The only part of the deal left to complete is the player and Spurs meeting down the middle with personal terms.

The deal is expected to included a buy-back clause and a clause allowing Real Madrid to match any future fee for the for 23-year-old. (Via

The Red Devils have not given up hope as the deal is all but confirmed and still some distance away from a Spurs’ medical. Yet, they are still to submit an official bid. Afore this and standing in Man United’s favour is the fact the player denied a return to Sevilla and has selected Old Trafford as his preferred destination.

Daniel Levy and Jose Mourinho were left angry with the display on the pitch when his side lost 1-0 at home to Everton. He labelled their on-field display as “lazy”. This has them working faster in the transfer window, being linked with some quality players to help Harry Kane and co. out for the up and coming season.
