Sergio Reguilon has become the european football fashion left back. His grand finale to the season, crowned with a huge performance in the Europa League final that Sevilla beat Inter Milan on 21 August, has made him an object of desire for many of the great European clubs. Meanwhile, Real Madrid leaves the daisy on the situation, as the white youth squad seems to have no place in the current template but in turn the club does not want to totally undo from one of the most promising defenses in the world.
At surplus left side of white defense is the key to the future of Reguilón, of which they are so pending, above all, at Sevilla and Manchester United, the two teams that have shown the most interest in having the services of the Madrid player in the season that is about to begin. Performance of Ferland mendy, for which the white club paid 40 million euros last summer, has been more than satisfactory, proving to be an insurmountable rock in defense and a player who contributes much more than expected in attack.
The Gaul is therefore totally indisputable, while the other position is a priori for Marcelo Vieira. The Brazilian is a legend of the Madrid team who has one season left on his contract, and the club’s intention is to respect his decision to continue a final year out of respect for his career. Furthermore, Marcelo performed more than satisfactorily last season, contributing a lot –as usual– in attack and fulfilling in defense –for the memory, the play in which he avoided a goal from Messi in the Clásico that was worth half the league–.
Real Madrid also has a third alternative, the youth squad Miguel Gutiérrez. Considered one of the great promises of the subsidiary, the idea is to give him a few minutes in a season that will have a very full schedule of games.
With such a saturation of players for that area of the field, Reguilón’s departure seems the most logical option despite his spectacular performance, but the club does not want to lose the rights to the player. Therefore, only two options are contemplated: an assignment or a sale but with a buyback option.
At Real Madrid this last option is welcomed, as the full-back’s market value has multiplied. As with Achraf, in the white entity they estimate that the operation could be closed in an amount around 35 or 40 million euros, with Manchester United as the best placed team. The Red Devils, however, are not currently agreeing to the buyback clause, which has paralyzed the operation.
In the event that a loan is chosen, Sevilla is the club that appears as the best placed. Julen Lopetegui He managed to get the best performance from the Madrilenian last season and in Madrid it is considered that a return to the Seville team is a safe bet, because in the event that it was decided to sell the player within a year, his value would remain high. “We already said that we would love to have him here, but it is something complicated because there are many economically strong rivals against whom it is very difficult to fight,” he said on Tuesday. Monchi, sports director of the Seville team.
They are the two clubs that are currently best placed to take over the services of Sergio Reguilón, but not the only ones, in the Chamartín offices the offers for the defender have been numerous. For now the winger recovers in the Valdebebas Sports City from the injury that occurred in the last minutes of the Spanish team’s game against the Ukrainian, a sprained ankle that, according to the player himself, will not keep him off the pitch for much more than a week.
