Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has been discussing Sergio Reguilon’s future at the north London club and the possibility of him returning to Real Madrid in the upcoming January transfer window.
One question that came up in the video was if it would be possible for Real Madrid to activate their buy-back clause on Reguilon and take him back to the Bernabeu in January, to which Gold gave this reply.
He said: “The answer is no, as far as I’m aware. What I’ve been told is that Real Madrid, [with the] buy-back clause, have the opportunity to buy him for this certain fee, which is around £15 million more than Spurs paid for him in the summer.
“But they can only do so in [the] 2021 summer and 2022 summer – and obviously, it’s then down to the player to agree to if he wants to move back. So no, as far as I’m aware, January is not an issue, which is fantastic, because he’s been superb and hopefully, he’ll want to stick around. I’m hearing he’s loving life at Tottenham Hotspur, so let’s hope it stays that way.”

TIF Thoughts on Alasdair Gold’s comments on Sergio Reguilon…
In his debut season for Spurs, Reguilon has made four appearances in the Premier League, in which he has managed to provide two assists and earn himself an impressive season rating of 7.11/10 (per WhoScored).
Looking at how impressive Reguilon has been for Spurs so far in the Premier League, it comes as no surprise that Madrid could potentially be thinking about using their buy-back clause on the defender in January.
But now that Gold has claimed that this will not be the case, a lot of Spurs fans should breathe easy over this matter.
However, when the summer transfer window comes around, there’s every possibility that the Spanish club could trigger the clause and bring him back to Madrid.
