Carlo Ancelotti wants the Spanish left-back in his squad next summer.

Real Madrid are planning for the return of Sergio Reguilon, who they sold to Tottenham in the summer of 2020.

According to a report from Mirror, Los Blancos are ready to trigger his buy-back clause, with manager Carlo Ancelotti eyeing him as a vital addition.

Reguilon was signed by Spurs last year during Jose Mourinho’s reign for 27m pounds but the Premier League club also agreed to Madrid’s insistence on a buy-back clause.

The Spanish left-back was also happy to join the North Londoners since he failed to convince Real’s then-manager Zinedine Zidane.

A year has passed on and Reguilon is turning out to be a useful signing for Spurs. He has been more impressive this season, registering 2 assists in 8 Premier League appearances. Furthermore, he managed to earn a place in the national team squad in the last international break. He was also the talk of the town recently for his gesture of goodwill in the game against Newcastle United, as he signalled the referee to halt the game after spotting a medical emergency in the crowd.

La Liga giants are now plotting a 33m pounds move for the 24-year-old next summer whilst the player is said to have given the nod to return to his former club.

Ancelotti has a star-studded squad at his disposal but he seems worried about the left-back options.

Ferland Mendy, the first-choice left-back, has struggled with injuries this season and he made his first appearance against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League last night.

Hence, the Italian manager wants a quality player to strengthen the left-back position and he has identified Reguilon as the perfect option.
