Girona full-back Miguel Gutiérrez is in fine form and according to Relevo, Real Madrid’s buy-back clause may facilitate his sale.
The 22-year-old defender, who scored a brilliant goal in the 4-2 win against Barcelona on Sunday, has had an outstanding La Liga campaign, which has increased interest in the player. In the match against Xavi’s side, Gutiérrez completed the most passes in the final third and consequently received the Man of the Match award.
With three assists already to his name, suitors are lining up to sign him, with Los Blancos also on the horizon. Madrid sold the player to Girona for €5m, but retain 50% rights of his rights meaning the club could buy him back for €8m next summer.
The Madrid-born player has a contract with Girona until 2027, with a release clause of €35m. However, any team that would like to buy the player will have to compete with Madrid, who have a right of first refusal.
The likes of Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Manchester City are all monitoring Gutiérrez and therefore it is likely that Girona will look to cash in on him in January, as they know the Spanish giants could buy him back for a bargain price in the summer.
A transfer in the winter window would bring the club much more financial rewards as his €35m release clause is the same for everyone at this moment in time.
