Insider Fabrizio Romano reported on the Here We Go podcast that left-back Sergio Reguilon is not part of Antonio Conte’s future plans.
Having transferred from Real Madrid for £27 million, much was expected of the Spaniard, given the fact that Real Madrid themselves included a clause to buy the defender back.
However, under the guidance of Italian specialist Antonio Conte, he was never able to secure a starting eleven spot. During summer, the defender has been training on his own, with other players who were not in the Conte’s plans. As a result, the Spaniard joined Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan.
According to media, there is no buyout option at Atletico Madrid. In addition, Romano stated that the defender is not part of the plans of the London club as well.
“No buy option, it is a straight loan, why? Because of the Financial Fair Play. In the FFP rules, when you include a buy option, it’s something that could be considered as a potential part of the negotiation, and so a potential part of the balance of Financial Fair Play.
“So Atletico Madrid decided to proceed with a straight loan, and if they want to sign Sergio Reguilon next summer, they will have a chance to negotiate with Tottenham, to discuss with Tottenham, as Tottenham already signed Udogie, they have Sessegnon, they have Perisic, and so Reguilon at the moment is not in the plans of Tottenham.”
