Sergio Reguilon has been attracting a lot of interest from around Europe, with Barcelona one of the clubs tracking the Tottenham 25-year-old left-back according to Italian transfer specialist Romano Fabrizio.
Earlier this week, Gerard Romero claimed on Twitch that Reguilon’s agents have offered his services to Barcelona. Now, Romano has also commented on the Blaugrana’s reported interest in the Tottenham man.

📁 Real Madrid have a buy back clause available this summer for Reguilón, around €40m.
Barcelona have identified Tottenham Hotspur star Sergio Reguilon as a potential replacement for 33-year-old Jordi Alba with the deal for Barcelona’s first choice Jose Gaya becoming increasingly complicated since he is in favour of renewing his contract with Valencia.
Diario Sport are also talking about Reguilon and Barcelona and reckon there’s a chance a player swap could work as Tottenham are keen on both Clement Lenglet and Memphis Depay.
Spurs signed the 25-year-old from Real Madrid in the summer of 2020 for a fee a fee of around £25million which could rise to £32million, according to Sky Sport.
But, the La Liga giants ensured a buyback option was included in the deal that could see him move back to the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium for €40m(£33.5m) if they wanted to.
The clause states that Real can buy back Reguilon in either the summer of 2021 or 2022, with Spurs making a healthy profit of around £15million.
Real were given two chances to bring Reguilon back to the Bernabeu. The first was last summer, which they did not take up, and the second will be at the end of this season. with Marcelo leaving at the end of the season, they may consider to activate buy-back of Sergio Reguilon as left back rivals Kieran Tierney deal to Madrid looks dead.
Reguilon has been one of the most improved players since Antonio Conte took over the managerial job back in November.
But in recent weeks, Reguilon is a facing a battle with Ryan Sessegnon also competing for the left-back slot too, and is apparently starting to get a bit frustrated at the inconsistent playing time.
And with potential return to Spain on the cards, Spurs might find it really challenging to keep hold of him, as it ultimately depends on the player.
