Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly close to agreeing a deal for Sergio Reguilon as they look to pip Premier League rivals Manchester United to the Real Madrid left-back and his team-mate Gareth Bale.

Reguilon is firmly in Spurs’ sights as Jose Mourinho looks to add another competitor to Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon in the left-back spot. The recently-capped Spain international has the subject of talks between the north London club and Real Madrid of late.

According to The Athletic, while a deal is not yet done. Spurs are making progress and that an agreement for the permanent acquisition of the player is not far from fruition.

United have held discussions with Los Blancos about the 23-year-old but have not been able to broker a deal. The report adds that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is not a fan of Reguilon despite his excellent season on loan at Europa League winners Sevilla last term.

No fee is mentioned but it has been regularly suggested this summer that Reguilon would cost somewhere between £23million and £27m.

And he may not be the only Spurs arrival from the Spanish capital as they make a concerted effort to bring wide-man Bale back to London. The Wales international, 31, spent six years with Spurs before joining Real Madrid in 2013 for a then-world record £85m fee.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is keen to try and bring Bale back to the club on a loan deal with Bale also out of favour under Zidane at the Bernabeu. But United are also linked with Bale as they look at potential alternatives to Jadon Sancho, who Borussia Dortmund want £108m for.
