Tottenham set to go head to head with Manchester Utd following the Spurs last-minute bid to sign Sergio Reguilon from under Manchester United’s noses.
The Real Madrid full-back had given the go-ahead to a move to Old Trafford but United failed to agree a fee with Real Madrid.
And Spurs have now come in with a £27.5m bid which meets Real’s valuation and included the two controversial clauses United rejected.
According to David Ornstein, Tottenham are close to agreeing a deal with Real Madrid over the signing of Reguilon.
Exclusive: Tottenham close to agreeing deal for Spain left-back Sergio Reguilon on permanent transfer from Real Madrid. Not done but highly possible. Man Utd have also held discussions for 23yo but no agreements with him or #RMFC @TheAthleticUK #THFC #MUFC https://t.co/1wgFAAEKUK

Real Madrid want a buy-back option on the 23-year-old, allowing them to repurchase him for less than £37m.
Reguilon, who won the Europa League on loan at Sevilla last season has yet to agree to join Spurs.
Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the left-back, who has long been interested in a move to the Premier League.
