Real Madrid have been reportedly wanted to let Miguel Gutiérrez leave this summer. It has been mentioned that Los Blancos are willing to cash in on the Spanish full-back in this off-season.
The Castilla defender is not part of Ancelotti’s immediate plans and his future, which will be settled in the coming weeks, involves him being sold with Madrid keeping half of his rights. That operation has already been outlined, and several clubs have already stated an interest. That will allow Los Blancos the chance to take him back at a future date should they decide to do so.
Madrid have set an accessible price so it will be the player who chooses where he ends up playing next season.
A rising star in Real Madrid
Miguel Gutierrez started his youth career with Getafe before joining Real Madrid as a 10-year-old in 2011. The young Spaniard progressed through the ranks rapidly at La Fabrica before making his first-team debut in April 2021 under Zinedine Zidane’s tutelage.
The 20-year-old did well to average 2.3 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 0.7 clearances, 1.0 key passes, 0.7 crosses, and 2.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga.
Gutierrez leaves Los Blancos for good?
Miguel Gutierrez loves a tackle and can earn the ball back for his team on the defensive third of the pitch. He was even excellent when distributing the ball from the left flank, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 94% in the Spanish top-flight, according to whoscored stats.
But the 20-year-old left-back endured a frustrating 2021/22 season as he managed only four appearances for the Real Madrid first-team. However, Gutierrez was solid for Real Madrid Castilla, amassing two goals and eight assists in 16 appearances. However, while the youngster flourished for the reserve side, he wants to feature prominently at the first-team level in the 2022/23 season. Hence, it makes sense for both the player and Real Madrid to part ways with each other during this summer transfer window.
