Sergio Reguilon of Real Madrid has decided to make a final decision on his future after receiving offers from various clubs
Sergio Reguilon of Real Madrid has been one of the most talked-about players recently. The Spanish left-back was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, however, it seems like the Red Devils have pulled out from the operation after Real were stern on including a buy-back clause.
Despite the phenomenal run at Sevilla last season under Julen Lopetegui on loan, the 23-year-old left-back has no room to grow at Real Madrid. As Zinedine Zidane prefers using Marcelo and Ferland Mendy for the left flank ahead of the Spanish international. Having said that, Real are willing to cash in on the player this summer, however, Sergio Reguilon prefers going out on a loan as he is eager on returning to his boyhood club.
The 23-year-old has snubbed Juventus and Napoli’s offer as the player prefers to return to Sevilla on a second loan spell to work with Julen Lopetegui, according to AS. At the Seville based side, Reguilon would have the opportunity to play Champions League football that would help him to grow as a player overall.
A season-long loan at Sevilla would mean that Reguilon would return to Real Madrid in the summer of 2021 when Marcelo would also enter the final twelve months of his contract. The Brazilian left-back has lost a yard of pace and has seriously deteriorated with time. The 32-year-old could be shown the door next summer as the player is currently valued at just 20 million euros. Real would certainly not want to lose the player on a free transfer and cashing in on him during the summer of 2021 seems ideal.
Marcelo’s possible departure would open the gateway for Reguilon to cement a place in Zinedine Zidane’s squad, however, the Spaniard would have to compete with Ferland Mendy for a starting spot. Nonetheless, Reguilon would certainly be an upgrade for Real and would provide healthy competition for Mendy as well.
