Atletico Madrid have confirmed the capture of former Real Madrid defender Sergio Reguilon on loan from Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur.

The Spanish left-back came through the youth ranks at Los Rojiblancos’ local rivals but made his name during a loan spell at Sevilla in the 2019/20 campaign. Following that Tottenham signed in the summer of 2020 in a deal worth around €30 million.

Reguilon made a solid impression in his first season in London, but the arrival of Antonio Conte saw the left-back fall out of favour quite rapidly at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Having seen his game-time reduce over the second half of the last season, Reguilon was completely frozen out this summer by Conte, with Tottenham even signing Ivan Perisic as his replacement.

Reguilon had been in talks with several clubs over a potential exit, but ultimately it is Atletico Madrid who have clinched his signing on loan for the rest of the season.

As per the terms of the agreement the Colchoneros will be covering the entirety of his wages for the duration he is on loan, while there is no option or obligation to buy included in the operation.

Reguilon arrives as a replacement for Renan Lodi, who completed a loan transfer to Premier League newbies Nottingham Forest on Monday.

The former Real Madrid left-back has not played in a competitive fixture in nearly four months and will likely take time to be integrated into Diego Simeone’s side at the Civitas Metropolitano.

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.”
