Tottenham Hotspur have officially beaten Manchester United to the signing of Real Madrid star Sergio Reguilon.
The left-back was linked with a move to the Red Devils for weeks as the two clubs reportedly haggled over two clauses the Spanish club wanted included in the deal.
Los Blancos wanted a buy-back clause as well as the option to match any other bid from another club for the player in the future.
Spurs seemingly saw an opportunity to hijack the move and Jose Mourinho has now managed to pull off a serious coup, with the London club quickly wrapping up a deal for the Spain international.
Despite the player being said to have been interested in joining Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team, United were reportedly not keen to give into Real's demands, which stalled the potential move. Tottenham, on the other hand, agreed to both clauses without hesitation as they quickly bypassed United to get their target.
Reguilon was a standout performer while on loan at Sevilla last season, when they claimed the UEFA Europa League crown, while he also made his debut for the Spain national team against Ukraine in September.
