Tottenham Hotspur are in pole position to beat Manchester United in signing Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon, multiple sources have told ESPN.

A number of rumours have stated a number of impressions about the deal but right now Fabrizio Romano has given the most important update on the 23-year-old's move to the Premier League.

Earlier on Tuesday it had been reported a loan swap deal involving England worldwide Dele Alli had been proposed, and those reports were given added weight when the player's agent confirmed that talks were ongoing with the club.

"We are talking. It's where he wants to go".

Madrid are desperate to offload Bale and will consider subsidising a portion of his £600,000 per week wages in order to facilitate the 31-year-old's Premier League return.

Nevertheless, the winger's agent Jonathan Barnett stated playing in north London once again would be his client's preferred option.

The transfer window ends next month so Man United still have a lot of time to close the deal but this will surely not be good news for Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams.

The report adds that while United's chances of signing Bale hinge on the outcome of their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund star Sancho, Spurs manager Jose Mourinho has made it clear to chairman Daniel Levy that he needs attacking reinforcements to ease the goalscoring burden on Harry Kane.

On his day, Gareth Bale can single-handedly win games, he is a proven PL star, who is available for just 25 million euros (Mundo Deportivo).

Perisic joined Inter in 2015 and still has just under two years left to run on his contract with Inter.

Spurs are also closing in on a deal to sign Real left-back Sergio Reguilon, who had been a target for Manchester United.
