Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Fichajes offered an update on the future of Real Madrid left-back Miguel Gutierrez who could be cut loose this summer. It is believed that Los Blancos could decide to part ways with the Spanish youngster during this summer transfer window.

Gutierrez’s Decent Rise In The Spanish Capital

Gutierrez managed to break into Carlo Ancelotti’s first XI last season and did well to catch the eye at times over the past ten months. The 20-year-old made ten senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, picking up a couple of assists in the process across multiple competitions.

The Madrid-born prospect performed well to average 2.3 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 0.7 clearances, 1.0 key passes, 0.7 crosses and 2.0 dribbles per game in La Liga. He was even accurate when distributing the ball from the left flank, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 94% in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).

Should Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti Let Gutierrez Go This Summer?

Gutierrez is a good tackler of the ball and can make some timely interceptions for his team inside his half. He usually clears his lines when required and can set up some inviting opportunities for his teammates in the final third.

The Spanish talent is a decent crosser of the ball as well and can make a few driving runs with the ball down the left flank.

Gutierrez has the potential to become a regular starter at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium someday. Therefore, Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti should not consider cutting him loose during this summer transfer window. At 20, the future is quite bright for Gutierrez as long as he continues to improve with each season.

The Spaniard’s current contract with the Madrid outfit is set to run out in the summer of 2024, so there is no immediate need for Ancelotti to cash in on him this summer. The Italian tactician should rather think about giving him another chance to impress as a rotational piece next season and keep him at the Madrid club for the long run.
