Tottenham fullback Reguilon denies claims of Real Madrid blow-up with Luca Zidane

Tottenham fullback Sergio Reguilon has denied claims a blow-up with Luca Zidane saw him sold by Real Madrid.

It's been claimed Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane demanded Reguilon be sold after he clashed with his son Luca, who is now with Rayo Vallecano.

Reguilon was sold by Real Madrid over the summer to Spurs for £30m, with the Spain international arriving at the same time as teammate Gareth Bale joined on-loan from the LaLiga giants.

The left-back had arrived having just played an influential role in helping Sevilla to the Europa League final while on-loan last season. But El Confidencial reported Reguilon was sold because of a 'disagreement' with Zidane's son, Luca.

The pair played together primarily with the Castilla team, though were members of the Zizou's senior squad once both graduated from the B team. However, back with Luis Enrique's La Roja squad this week, Reguilon was eager to set the record straight.

The Spain international told Onda Cero via Le 10 Sport: "I get along very well with Luca Zidane, I don't think I've ever had a problem with him, on the contrary, we get along very well and keep in touch, it is absolutely wrong that I do not get along with him.

"I'm not in Madrid because it's something that doesn't depend on me.

"I have my conscience for me, we cannot be frustrated by decisions that we do not take. I couldn't speak to Zidane."
