LaLiga Now a key member of Sevilla squad
If we go back a year, Sergio Reguilon had played just 90 minutes of senior football, and it was unclear whether he’d make the grade at the top level, but Julen Lopetegui utilised him as a last resort in Moscow when injuries struck.
What followed was a whirlwind journey where he would become Los Blancos first-choice left-back in the subsequent months, with Santiago Solari really admiring his ability.
Until Solari was dismissed, Reguilon was a regular in the team, and his form impressed scouts and other coaches around the Spanish top flight.
Zinedine Zidane was always going to play Marcelo when he returned, the Brazilian had been a loyal servant to him, and the signing of Ferland Mendy meant the writing was on the wall for Reguilon.
Lopetegui and Monchi had seen his development and decided to take him on loan and he is now in line to start at the Camp Nou against Barcelona, as Sevilla look to stay in the title race.
There is also the small matter of international selection, which is far more likely now he is getting regular football with the Andalusian club.
