Tottenham have beaten Manchester United to the signing of left-back Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid on a five-year contract

 Spurs paid €30 million for the defender after agreeing to Madrid's demand for a buyback clause to be included in the deal.

Reguilon, 23, is a Madrid youth product who excelled on loan at Sevilla last season, becoming an important part of a team that won the Europa League and finished fourth in La Liga.

Los Blancos coach Zinedine Zidane preferred Marcelo and Ferland Mendy as his left-back options, but senior figures at the Bernabeu insisted that the club retain the option to bring Reguilon back if he continues to progress.

The defender made his Spain debut this month, starting for Luis Enrique's team in a 4-0 win over Ukraine.
Reguilon's impact at Sevilla -- after first breaking into the Real Madrid team in 2018-19, picked by then-coach Santi Solari ahead of Marcelo caught the eye of a number of top European clubs.

He was close to joining Chelsea last month before they agreed a deal for Ben Chilwell.
United and Inter Milan were both keen, and Sevilla would have liked to keep him for another season but were unable to compete financially 

He was then convinced by the personal interest Spurs manager Jose Mourinho had taken in his signing, while the relationship between Florentino Perez and Daniel Levy also helped secure an agreement.
