The official announcement was made. There was no place for Sergio Reguilon at Tottenham.
Brentford announced on the club’s official website on the 18th (Korea Standard Time), “Legilon has joined Brentford. The contract is in the form of a lease. He will stay until the end of the season.”
Reguilon’s transfer to Brentford spread a day earlier. “Reguilon is going to Brentford. Here we go,” wrote Fabrizio Romano, a European football transfer market expert, on social media on Wednesday.
According to the agreement, there is no provision for full recruitment in this contract. Reguilon will return to Tottenham at the end of this season. The medical test to join Brentford will take place on the 18th.
Reguilon left Tottenham Hotspur in September and wore a Manchester United jersey. Manchester United rushed to bring in Reguilon after key defender Luke Shaw and backup Tyrell Malacia were injured. The original plan was to bring in Chelsea defender Mark Cucurella on loan, but it fell through due to problems during loan negotiations.
However, things changed as Shaw returned from injury and Malacia was close to returning. In addition, Reguilon’s position was diminished as Manchester United lost the number of matches in the second half of the year due to the elimination of the UEFA Champions League and the Carabao Cup. When the winter transfer market opened, Manchester United terminated their loan contract for Reguilon early and sent it back to Tottenham.
There was no room for Regilon at Tottenham. Destiny Udogi, who has been playing in Tottenham’s uniform since this season, is currently standing at left-side defender’s position. Udogi has scored one goal and two assists in 17 of his team’s 20 matches under the strong trust of manager Enze Postecoglou this season. He is considered the best left-side defender in the Premier League this season, and Tottenham recently signed a long-term contract through 2030 in recognition of Udogi’s performance.
Udo-ki can be backed up, but even this is not easy. Ben Davies is in Tottenham’s first team’s defense. Davis, who has entered the season as a left-side defender, has been trusted by Postecoglou as he played better than expected as a central center back along with Christian Romero as Mickey van der Pen was sidelined due to an injury. With van der Pen’s return and Radragusin joining in the winter transfer market, Davis can focus on side defense.
In addition, there is Ryan Sessegnon, a professional left-sided defender. However, Sessegnon recovered from a hamstring injury and made a comeback as a substitute in the match against Burnley, but he was out of power again as the injury recurred. Reguilon is one of the left fullbacks who is drawing attention in Spain as a former Real Madrid youth. He spent the 2019-20 season on a successful loan, leading to the Europa League championship by establishing himself as a key player in Sevilla, and made his debut for the Spanish national team, raising his share price.
He then left Real Madrid and joined Tottenham for £25 million (about 38 billion won) ahead of the 2020-21 season, and played as the main left fullback under Jose Mourinho and Nunu Espirito Santo.
To Korean fans, Reguilon is known to be close to Son Heung-min. After the match against Arsenal in December 2020, he posted a picture of him hugging Son Heung-min on Instagram, writing “LOVE U SONNY” with a heart emoji. Several scenes of pranking with Son Heung-min during training have been revealed, and in an interview with Tottenham Hotspur’s official website in October 2021, Reguilon replied, “I was a big fan of Son Heung-min” when asked about a player he liked in the Premier League when he was young.
Reguilon, who had been on a roll as a starting defender, changed his position after Antonio Conte took over. Reguilon, who was unfamiliar with wingback because Conte used wingback along with three back, lost his key position to Sessegnon. The fact that he was out of power several times due to injury was also a bad news for Reguilon.
Reguilon, who lost his seat at Tottenham, was loaned to Atletico Madrid, Spain, last season in his second year as Conte. After completing the lease, he returned to Tottenham and played in a few pre-season games, but was loaned back to Manchester United as Udo-ki joined the team 헤라카지노주소.
Brantford made sure to step up the line. Main defender Rico Henry was ruled out for the season in September with a knee injury, leaving a gap in his left-back. Backup defender Aaron Hickey is also unavailable in January due to a thigh injury, and Saman Godos, who was rushed from striker to fullback, also left the team to play for Iran at the Asian Cup. He aimed for Marseille’s Henan Rosie, but turned to Regilon as Rosie mutually agreed to join Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal. The deal has addressed the top priority in the winter transfer market.
Reguilon is on loan again. After this season, it is not known which team will go to.
