Tottenham, who signed Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid, have ruled out a third possible transfer from them.
Tottenham had a lacklustre campaign in 2019/20 and immediately resorted to making some great signing in the summer transfer window. The Lilywhites are looking like a formidable force this season and despite winning just twice in five league outings so far, the expectations out of them are high.
The north Londoners recruited players such as Joe Hart, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty, Carlos Vinicius, Sergio Reguilon, and Gareth Bale and Joe Rodon, trying to structure the team around Jose Mourinho’s ideology and aim for a long-awaited title this season.
According to reports, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has now ruled out the move for Zinedine Zidane’s multi-utility man, Lucas Vazquez. The Portuguese manager was adamant to make his attack better in every way possible but the former Manchester United boss received more than he asked for as the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy acquired their prodigal son, Gareth Bale on a season-long loan deal.
Since the arrival of Gareth Bale, a need for the right-winger diminished for Mourinho due to the depth in that particular position. Pushing for the Spaniard would not have appeared logical in terms of finances and man-management for the club and the manager respectively.
Real Madrid’s changed strategy of signing stars for the future instead of in-form players has pushed Vazquez down the pecking order and created space for newcomers such as Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo. With only nine months left on his current contract with the La Liga champions, it seems highly unlikely that the super-sub would increase his contract with Madrid giants.
Lucas Vazquez has been an integral part of Real Madrid’s success over the years. His ability to alter according to any role given on the right flank gives his coaches a great level of flexibility. The 29-year-old has managed to make more than 200 appearances for Los Blancos. If Real Madrid fails to renew his current contract before January, the La Liga giants could see him go for free next season.
