20-year-old Real Madrid defender faces an uncertain future at club
The recent El Clasico revealed a lot of shortcomings in Carlo Ancelotti’s side. One amongst them was the fragility at left-back.
In the absence of Ferland Mendy, the manager had no solid backup on the night. While Marcelo is indeed an option on other days, his future at Madrid beyond this season is uncertain, especially due to his age.
Florentino Perez knows that left-back is a position in severe need for reinforcements. Two options are on the horizon: Fran Garcia, who has had an impressive season at Rayo Vallecano, or Real Madrid Castilla star Miguel Gutierrez.
According to reports from Diario AS, Real Madrid are yet to make a final decision between the two for next season. The management are open to negotiating a transfer for the latter to see how he evolves.
At the moment, Miguel has a contract until 2024 with a €40 million release clause. However, the player and his entourage prefer the player’s continuity in Madrid.
The 20-year-old is known to be a fearless attacker in the final third while being reasonably solid in defence. He has scored two goals and provided eight assists this season including one with the first team at Benito Villamarin. Statistically, he spends as much time in the opposition half as he does on his own.
While promoting Miguel is certainly a promising option, Ancelotti has not been the biggest advocate of trusting academy players. Similar to how Achraf Hakimi was loaned and eventually sold by Los Blancos, Miguel too could be shown the exit door for economic reasons.

Real Madrid target has rejected advances from Bayern Munich – report
Harry Kane has once again become the centre of attention ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.
With the forward having just 12 months remaining on his current contract at Tottenham, many expect him to leave the club at the end of the season. His situation has alerted Real Madrid, who were in contention to sign the player last summer.
However, Real Madrid are not the only club interested in the services of Kane, with the Englishman also being courted by Bayern Munich. The German giants are in the market for a top-class forward after being almost beaten by Dortmund for the Bundesliga title this term.
But according to Christian Falk, Harry Kane has decided to reject a move to Bayern Munich this summer. This is a significant boost for Real Madrid, as they continue to harbour hopes of signing the Englishman next season.
Amid growing fears over Karim Benzema’s continuity at Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid have had to step up their efforts to sign a new striker ahead of the new season.
The Spanish giants have been linked with a move for Roberto Firmino lately, with the Liverpool striker set to become a free transfer in the coming summer. But a proven superstar such as Kane could be a much better option for a club like Real Madrid.
With 280 goals in 435 matches for Tottenham, Kane has an excellent track record at the highest level of football and can help Real Madrid once again fight for the Champions League title next season while challenging Barcelona for the league crown.
But on the flip side, Real Madrid could think about the future, especially as they look to sign either Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland in 2024. Splashing the cash on Kane this summer, therefore, could complicate matters, as far as the club are concerned.
