Full-back Sergio Reguilon will agree to leave Real Madrid this summer but only to a club in the Champions League, report Diario AS.

The defender had risen to prominence this season for Los Blancos having become a regular for the club’s Castilla side over the past few campaigns.

Reguilon started 21 games for the outgoing European champions this season including four in the Champions League but had fallen out of favour under the returning Zinedine Zidane who preferred Marcelo in the position.

With the reported imminent arrival of left-back Ferland Mendy from Lyon, it appears that Reguilon’s future now lies away from Madrid.

He is said to be highly reluctant to leave the club this summer but he would be tempted by a ‘powerful club’ who are playing in European football, the report claims.

Alaves, Leganes and Borussia Dortmund have also been linked to Reguilon but Julen Lopetegui’s appointment at Sevilla is thought to give them the edge.

The former Spain boss coached the left-back at Madrid and is said to have given his seal of approval to Sevilla’s attempts to land him.

The futures of Marcelo – who has been linked to Juventus – and Theo Hernandez, currently on loan at Real Sociedad, are under scrutiny in the Spanish capital.
