Reguilon to return? Break clause in contract could see the Spaniard come back in January

Spurs left-back Sergio Reguilon's loan spell at Manchester United could come to an end this January if Tottenham opt to activate a clause in his contract.

Sergio Reguilon has played in 10 games for United since joining on loan over the summer, however, a clause in his contract will allow Spurs to recoup the player's talents if they so desire, come this January.

As The Spurs Web writes, it's hard to say if such a switch will actually occur. Destiny Udogie has flourished thus far under Ange Postecoglou, and Ryan Sessegnon is set to return soon from injury.

Ben Davies can always slide into the left full-back position if needed, so perhaps activation of the clause will come down to whether United consider him an asset for the remainder of the season.

The Spain international has played 67 matches in a Spurs shirt since joining in 2020 from Real Madrid for a fee of roughly ₤25.7m. His market value now stands at around ₤8.6m according to Transfermarkt.

Unfortunately it would be hard to say that he was an incredibly valuable signing, however it would be interesting to see how he might operate under Ange's system. With a high preference for Udogie at the moment, however, it's unlikely Spurs fans will get to see such a scenario this season, even if Reguilon is to return from loan.
