Real Madrid could sign Tottenham target Miguel Gutierrez in the summer
Real Madrid Youth Product Miguel Gutierrez, who plies his trade with Girona now has been outstanding this campaign and continues to be a key player for the Catalan team and has played a huge role in the team leading La Liga charts against all odds. The 22-year-old left-back had been on the radar of multiple Premier League clubs including Tottenham and also rejected a move to the English top-tier in favour of a potential return to Los Blancos’ ranks.
That is according to Relevo. Madrid sold Girona 50% of the player’s rights for €5m when he moved to Girona in August 2022. Real Madrid kept half of Miguel Gutierrez‘s ownership, with a clause: the Whites could buy him back for €8m next summer. And very recently, Carlo Ancelotti hinted at the prospect of getting Gutierrez back to the Santiago Bernabeu.
He was full of praise for the left-back who continues to play exceedingly well contributing to his team’s cause. He has a goal and five assists in 27 appearances across all competitions this season and that’s a testament to his growing stock in the world of football. Here is what Don Carlo had to say about the player via Fabrizio Romano – Twitter.
Gutierrez to the Lilywhites?
Tottenham’s interest in Gutierrez stems from their desire to bolster their left-back options, with Ben Davies and Destiny Udogie currently occupying that role. However, Davies’s future at the club appears uncertain under manager Ange Postecoglou, making the acquisition of a quality left-back a priority for Spurs. Gutierrez’s technical proficiency, defensive acumen, and attacking prowess make him an ideal candidate to address Tottenham’s needs in that position.
The prospect of Gutierrez returning to Real Madrid, where he began his youth career before joining Girona, presents a significant challenge for Tottenham’s pursuit of the talented defender. Real’s option to buy back Gutierrez next summer underscores their keen interest in reclaiming the promising youngster. The potential reunion with his former club could sway Gutierrez’s decision, posing a formidable obstacle for Tottenham in their quest to secure his services.
Furthermore, Real Madrid’s interest in Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies adds another layer of complexity to the situation. If Real Madrid were to successfully acquire Davies, it could potentially open the door for Tottenham to negotiate for Gutierrez.

In light of these developments, Tottenham must carefully assess their options and explore alternative avenues to strengthen their squad. While the potential loss of Gutierrez to Real Madrid would undoubtedly be disappointing, Spurs must remain proactive in their pursuit of defensive reinforcements to address any deficiencies in their squad.
