The Spanish domestic league may have finished, but for some teams, the season rolls on as European competitions resume. Sevilla FC are one of those teams, and in fact they’ll be taking on AS Roma later today in the now single-elimination Europa League Round of 16.
Young Sergio Reguilón is putting off any decision about his future until at least after this game, or even later should Sevilla advance. The 23-year-old left back, who’s on loan from Real Madrid, has become one of the more highly coveted transfer targets at the position thanks to not only his great season, but Real’s supposed willingness to sell.
But Reguilón isn’t ruling anything out just yet.
“I do not think about these possibilities now — I’m sorry if that sounds like a cliche. 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 teammates and club.”
And that’s certainly the reasonable stance to take at this moment, though Reguilón acknowledges that he’s aware of the interest in him. He will have some big decision to make in the near future.
“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. [...] 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.
“We should talk about that sitting quietly with Real Madrid, my representative, with everyone. And see the possibilities for next year, let’s see what happens. I don’t know.”
As Reguilón himself says, that’s a fairly cliched response, but at the same time, it also does a good job of leaving every option open, including the increasingly rumored Chelsea possibility.
