Sergio Reguilon was sold by Real Madrid last summer due to a personal dispute with Zinedine Zidane’s son.
According to reports, Luca Zidane and Reguilon did not get along too well in the Real Madrid B team.
Reguilon went on to establish himself as one of the best young left-backs in Spain last term. He finished out the campaign by winning the Europa League with Sevilla. Unfortunately for him, a simple spat with Zidane’s son meant that he no longer a place in his squad.
Tottenham Hotspur jumped at the opportunity to sign him for €30m with a buy-back clause worth €45m inserted by Real. Manchester United were also interested in him but could not agree to Real’s terms.
El Confidencial states that both Reguilon and Luca were teammates who are no longer at the club. Luca moved on to Rayo Vallecano and Reguilon to the Premier League. If this was not the direct reason behind the latter’s departure, perhaps the presence of Ferland Mendy and Marcelo was.
Zidane already has two quality options at Reguilon’s position and he needed to offload a number of players to balance Real’s books. The Galacticos spent the summer bidding farewell to a host of their own but bringing in no one. Reguilon just happened to be part of the mass exodus.
