In a recent report, Defensa Central mentioned that Real Madrid are hoping to re-sign Girona full-back Miguel Gutierrez. It has been revealed that Los Blancos are looking to bring the Spanish talent back to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium next summer.
Gutierrez’s Decent Campaign In Spanish Football
Gutierrez has performed at a high level on the left side of Girona’s backline during this campaign. He has made 14 appearances for the Spanish club this season, picking up three assists in the process across all competitions.
The Madrid-born sensation deserves a lot of credit for averaging 1.9 tackles and 1.0 interceptions per game in the Dutch Eredivisie. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball from the left flank, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 87.6% in the Dutch top tier (stats via whoscored).
Gutierrez is enjoying his football at Girona where he has a contract that runs out in the summer of 2027. Hence, Los Blancos would have to make a sizable offer if they are serious about recruiting him next year.
Should Real Madrid Head Coach Carlo Ancelotti Move In For Gutierrez?
Gutierrez is a solid tackler of the ball and can earn the ball back for his team on the defensive end of the field. He can read the danger well and has got the vision to create some decent chances for his teammates in the final third. Gutierrez is primarily a left-back but can also operate as a left-sided wide player if his manager asks him to do so.
At the moment, Gutierrez is playing some of his best football, so it makes sense for the Madrid giants to consider bringing him back next summer. He already knows them quite well after graduating from the Spanish club’s academy and won’t take much time to settle into life in the Spanish capital.
We can expect Gutierrez to offer some decent competition for Ferland Mendy at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the coming seasons. At 21, he has got the potential to become a future star in European football. Therefore, Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti would be wise to engineer a move to lure him back to the Spanish capital next year.
The Spanish sensation is good enough to be a real gem for Ancelotti’s side in the long run. Thus, the Madrid outfit should move in for their former youngster this January or at the end of this season.
