As per Italian journalist Raimondo De Magistris, Atletico Madrid have formally submitted a request to sign Tottenham Hotspur left-back Sergio Reguilon on loan for the rest of the season.

Reguilon, a former Real Madrid player, left Los Blancos in the summer of 2020 to sign for Tottenham Hotspur. While he was a regular in the side for the first eighteen months of his stint in England, his game-time took a hit after the arrival of Antonio Conte as manager last year.

The Spaniard is completely out of favour at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium currently, with Conte exiling him from first-team training and preferring to use Ryan Sessegnon and Ivan Perisic as the left-sided wing-backs.

Reguilon has been made available for sale and there have been multiple clubs interested in his signing. Lazio in Serie A are keen while there is also interest from newly-promoted Premier League club Nottingham Forest.

And now, as per the report, Atletico Madrid have also shown an interest in signing Reguilon and have submitted a formal request to bring him to the Civitas Metropolitano on loan for the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign.

Despite his past association with Real Madrid, Reguilon would welcome a transfer to Atleti, potentially due to the prospect of playing in the Champions League.

Atletico Madrid have Reinildo Mandava as their primary left-back at the moment. And with the second choice in the position, Renan Lodi, being linked with an exit, there would be room for Reguilon in Diego Simeone’s squad.

So, it will be interesting to see if the ex-Real Madrid star ends up making his way to the Metropolitano or decides to join some other club, as an exit from Tottenham Hotspur looms large for the left-back.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
