Why Man United Missed Out On Sergio Reguilon’s Transfer To Tottenham


Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on the £27.5m signing of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid after the North London club snatched the deal from under the noses of Manchester United.

The Daily Express disclosed that Spurs will now speak with the representatives of the player after the agreement with Real Madrid was reached as stated above.

Manchester United were in pole position to sign the 23-year-old but they have been pipped to his transfer due to their failure to meet two clauses from Real Madrid.

The Red Devils also agreed on a transfer fee of £27.5m for Sergio Reguilon only for the deal to hit a snag because of two clauses.

Real Madrid wanted to insert a buyback clause that will let them sign the player for around £37m.

There was also the clause that will let Real Madrid match any external bid for the player even if it is below £37m.

Manchester United didn’t agree to these clauses and that paved the way for Spurs who didn’t have any issue with the two clauses.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho had been searching for a new left-back and he is set to get his wish with Sergio Reguilon who was named the best left-back in Spain last season.
