Reguilon didn’t speak to Zidane before leaving Real Madrid for Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur defender Sergio Reguilon has revealed he did not speak to Zinedine Zidane before he left Real Madrid this summer.

The 23-year-old sealed an initial £25m move to Spurs over the summer but Real Madrid did insert a buy-back clause into the deal which means he could return to the Bernabeu one day.

Speaking on 'El Larguero' on Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, Reguilon did not rule out a return to Madrid and opened up about his exit.

"Madrid is my home and where I grew up," he said. "In the future you never know but the possibility is there… I didn't speak to the boss, it was more with the club.

"I know what they think of me, I had to take a decision. Time will tell. I didn't ask for explanations."

Reguilon was not the only player who left Real Madrid to join Spurs over the summer, with Gareth Bale making his long-awaited return to north London on loan and Reguilon believes the Welshman is much more settled now he has returned to England.

He added: "He seems different to me. The language is everything for him. He speaks Spanish well, it's not bad, a bit like me in English, but communication, the habits, mean he's happier in England… I have no idea if he'll return (to Madrid)."

Speaking last month about his move to Spurs in an interview with Sky Sports, Reguilon said: "There was a broad market but as soon as I heard of Tottenham's interest, it was simple.

"It was a big deal to leave my country, my league and my family, but it has worked out well.

"Since I arrived here, the truth is the club has surprised me in a very good way. The training facilities, my team-mates, everything. The stadium is insane. I have really enjoyed it so far."

Reguilon has been a regular starter under Jose Mourinho, making seven appearances in all competitions so far this season.
