Negotiations for Miguel Gutiérrez are progressing. Real Madrid and Girona are very close to reaching an agreement on the transfer fee, according to journalist Jorge Picón.
The deal is expected to be finalised in the next few hours. Madrid will sell 50% of the player’s rights and will include a buy-back option. City Football Group have been monitoring the left-back for months.
The 21-year-old would have found it difficult to break into Carlo Ancelotti’s team this season with Ferland Mendy and David Alaba both set to play in the role across the season, but Madrid are open to keeping the option of one day having him in their team.
Getafe were previously interested in the defender but eventually pulled out of the race to sign Gutiérrez as they could not afford anything more than a loan deal. For Real Betis, their finances were also an issue.
He is expected to sign a five-year deal with newly-promoted Girona.
