Sergio Reguilón will play for Atlético de Madrid until the end of the season, as announced by the rojiblanco club on Tuesday. The 25-year-old left-back from Madrid arrives on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, the team that signed him two seasons ago for 30 million euros from Real Madrid. With the arrival of Reguilón, Atlético replaces the loss of Renan Lodi, who has left on loan to Nottingham Forest, leaving Saúl and Carrasco as the only options for the left lane, since Reinildo is positioning himself as central in these first games .
The Spanish international will have to wait to debut with his new team, since he is currently injured. Last week he underwent surgery for pubalgia and will continue to carry out the rehabilitation and functional re-adaptation process with the medical services of the rojiblanco club, with which he underwent the medical examination this morning.
Reguilón returns to Spain after two years of adventure in the Premier defending the colors of the Spurs. Mourinho recruited him in 2020 for Tottenham and gave him the starting job from day one. Despite the Portuguese coach’s dismissal midway through the season, Reguilón remained the first choice at left-back, first under Nuno Espirito Santo, and this past season under Antonio Conte. However, an injury prevented him from participating in the final stretch of last season and the Italian coach decided to do without him for this course, leaving him out of the team that traveled to South Korea for the summer preparation tour. Reguilón is leaving London after playing 62 games for Tottenham, in which he scored two goals and provided nine assists.
Reguilón’s objective was to return to LaLiga. During his time at Sevilla, on loan in the 2019-20 campaign, he became one of the most promising full-backs in the championship and had offers to stay in Spain. However, Madrid decided to cash in on the youth squad, who did not count for Zidane, and decided to sell him to the Premier. Reguilón had made his debut with the white first team in the 2018-19 season at the hands of Solari, who took him out of Castilla to replace a Marcelo who was showing signs of fading.
