Tottenham Hotspur Confirm Signing of Sergio Reguilon (With Bale Hint)

19 September 2020 07:53

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the signing of Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon, and hinted at the imminent arrival of fellow Merengues star Gareth Bale.

The 23-year-old had long been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer, but with neither side able to come to an agreement, Spurs swooped in and agreed terms with both club and player.

Reguilon's announcement has been eagerly anticipated by Lily Whites supporters, and it appeared to arrive on Saturday evening. Spurs retweeted a tweet that the defender had sent in 2013, which read 'Mañana soy del Tottenham' (tomorrow I am Tottenham's), and the club replied by simply saying 'Hoy*' (today*).

This deal was confirmed minutes later, as Spurs released a proper video, with the Spain international wearing the Tottenham shirt. He then answers a phone call in the video and says in Spanish, 'Hello my friend, I think it's your turn,' hinting at the imminent arrival of Gareth Bale from los Blancos.

The defender spent last season on loan at Spanish outfit Sevilla, where he won the Europa League, knocking out Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United on the way to the final.
