Miguel Gutierrez has been making huge strides at Girona this season. Interestingly enough, this 22-year-old left-back happens to be a former Real Madrid Castilla and first-team player, who left Los Blancos in August 2022 in search of regular first-team football.

As of today, Real Madrid have discussed the possibility of re-signing the former talent and Carlos Forjanes has reported via AS that they could acquire him at a relatively low cost.

The journalist writes that the team from the Spanish capital can sign him for a mere €8 million despite the fact that his release clause is €40 million.

How is it possible?

Back when Gutierrez left Madrid for Girona, Real Madrid did not lose the entire control of his future. 

During the transfer, Real Madrid stood firm and successfully secured their preferential transfer approach which was similar to the Fran García deal.

For Gutierrez, they opted to sell only 50% of his sports rights, fetching a sum ranging from €4 million to €5 million, while also ensuring a reasonably priced buyback option.

In the event Real Madrid decide to reclaim the young full-back, the transfer fee would be a modest €8 million. However, for other clubs globally, the release clause is substantially steeper, set at five times that amount, specifically €40 million. 

Interestingly, any potential activating of this clause will require prior notification to Madrid by Girona.

Real Madrid need a left-back

Currently, the left-back position at Real Madrid remains no ownership, as the club aims to capitalize on Ferland Mendy’s potential revenue by selling him and Garcia has yet to fully win over Carlo Ancelotti. 

In the interim, there is a mutual interest between Madrid and Bayern Munich full-back Alphonso Davies, with both parties closely monitoring each other. 

However, it is worth noting that next summer could potentially see the arrival of more than just one left-back if the club decides to pursue additional options.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
