Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon has responded to the recent transfer speculation surrounding his name.
Reguilon, 23, is a product of Real Madrid’s youth system.
However, to this point, he has managed just 22 appearances for Los Blancos’ senior side.
This struggle for regular first-team minutes eventually led to the left-back joining fellow Spanish outfit Sevilla on loan for the 2019/20 campaign.
And to say that the stopper went on to grasp this opportunity with both hands would be something of an understatement.
Reguilon notched 31 La Liga appearances this past season, in which he scored two, assisted four, and helped Sevilla to secure a Champions League spot.
The Nervionenses were also the owners of the third-tightest defence in the Spanish top-flight, with only the two Madrid clubs having conceded fewer goals.

Sergio Reguilon responds to transfer speculation
Such exploits have, unsurprisingly, seen Reguilon linked with a number of top sides.
The defender appears to have attracted significant interest from the Premier League, with both Chelsea and Everton linked this month.
The latter are even believed to have tabled an £18m bid.
And now, as outlined above, Reguilon has spoken out over the transfer speculation surrounding his name.
The gifted left-back, though, remained rather coy on his situation, assuring that he won’t be thinking about his future until the season is over (Sevilla are still competing in the Europa League):
“If my year at Sevilla had not been good, then this would not be happening. These teams would not ring.
“If I am fine, the team is fine and the club is fine, everyone is happy. But I do not think about these possibilities now – I’m sorry if that sounds like a cliché.
“I’ve been saying since quarantine that until the season isn’t over I won’t be talking about my future.
“Until then it would be unfair on myself, my team-mates and the club.
“I have no complaints about anything, about the city, the club, my colleagues. I feel very loved. Who knows what will happen in the future.”
