Real Madrid prospect Miguel Gutierrez has reportedly been offered to Premier League club Leeds United, who are in the market for a new left-back.
According to an exclusive report from TEAMtalk, Real Madrid youngster Miguel Gutierrez could be on his way to the Premier League next summer, with his services being offered to Leeds United.
Gutierrez, 19, is a product of the Real Madrid youth academy. Having risen through the ranks, the left-back earned promotion to the Real Madrid Castilla team this season where he has been a regular under club legend Raul Gonzalez. Till date, he has featured 13 times for Castilla, scoring one goal. The teenager has also made it to the first-team matchday squad on several occasions. but is yet to make his debut.
While he may not have made a senior appearance as of yet, Gutierrez is already attracting plenty of interest, with Juventus and Inter Milan monitoring his development while Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho also recently made an enquiry for him, only to be turned down. However, now, the 19-year-old could make his way to England, with Leeds having been offered his services.
Leeds are in the market for a new left-back heading into the new season. Having returned to the Premier League after 16 years, the Whites have gone through the 2020/21 campaign without a natural left-sided full-back, instead relying on the likes of Stuart Dallas and Ezgjan Alioski to get the job done. However, the club are said to be keen to add more support to Dallas before next season.
And they could do so with the signing of Gutierrez, who has been offered to Leeds United director Victor Orta. As things stand, the report states that the Whites are considering a season-long loan deal for the Real Madrid prospect with an option to make the transfer permanent next year.
Real Madrid, though, remain unsure over whether they should let Gutierrez leave. Held in the highest of regards by Raul, the 19-year-old may have a shot at first-team football next term, as a backup for first-choice left-back Ferland Mendy, with Marcelo’s form dwindling. However, with Los Blancos closing in on the free transfer of David Alaba, he may not get as many chances under Zinedine Zidane.
It now remains to be seen if the highly-rated Real Madrid prospect makes his way to Elland Road in the upcoming transfer window or gets the push to the first-team at the Spanish capital outfit.
