Real Madrid are facing an intriguing situation with regard to the left-back position heading into the summer.

The future of Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia remain uncertain while top target Alphonso Davies is gunning for a lucrative contract.

In the midst of such uncertainty, Miguel Gutierrez has come into focus, with Real Madrid reportedly keen on bringing him in the summer.

Gutierrez’s success this season

A product of La Fabrica, Gutierrez left Real Madrid for Girona in the summer of 2022, for a fee of just €4 million.

Thanks to the small valuation, Los Blancos were able to secure a 50% sell-on fee in his Girona contract, along with an affordable buyback option of €8 million.

The youngster has done an extraordinary job for Michel’s team this season, impressing the onlookers with his attacking acumen and ability to operate in an inverted role.

Gutierrez has featured in 27 league matches this season, racking up a goal and four assists. His contributions have helped Girona pose a sensational fight for the league title.

What Gutierrez’s future means for Real Madrid

Real Madrid are involved in a tangent, as far as Miguel Gutierrez’s future is concerned.

As mentioned earlier, the club are reportedly keen on bringing him back to Bernabeu this summer by triggering the €8 million repurchase option.

However, MARCA has recently clarified that if Gutierrez does come back this summer, it will be as part of a guaranteed agreement of him becoming a first-team member.

That means Real Madrid will not sign him back just for the sake of making a quick profit. This makes sense considering the fact that Los Blancos already hold 50% of the player’s sell-on fee.

As such, the Spanish giants will receive half the amount of Girona’s sale revenue if he is sold to a different club by the Catalans.

To that end, it is important to note that Bayern are among the clubs eyeing a move for Gutierrez this summer as a replacement for none other than Real Madrid target Davies.

Real Madrid still waiting to see the best version of 24-year-old midfielder

Midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni has been at Real Madrid since 2023 but the Frenchman still hasn’t convinced the club’s hierarchy entirely, reports MARCA.

At just 24 years old, Tchouameni was signed for a staggering €80 million, a fee that could rise to €100 million with additional bonuses. This substantial investment reflects the high hopes that Real Madrid had for him, but so far, he has not lived up to those expectations.

Upon his arrival, the young midfielder’s potential sparked a fierce bidding war two seasons ago, with several top clubs vying for his signature. 

Ultimately, Tchouameni chose Real Madrid, but not before the club shelled out a considerable amount of money to secure his services.

A valiant effort to replace Casemiro

Initially, Tchouameni was brought in as a replacement for the legendary Casemiro. However, he has struggled to fill those big shoes and his performances have been inconsistent, with moments of brilliance interspersed with matches where he fails to make a significant impact. 

While he possesses excellent technical skills, his creativity and ability to influence the game are often questioned. As a result, he has yet to win over the Real Madrid fans.

One of Tchouameni’s strengths is his age. At 24, he still has plenty of room to grow and improve. He understands the high standards that Real Madrid demand from the players and is committed to reaching that level.

The club hopes that he will continue to develop and eventually become a leader in the midfield, especially in the absence of veterans like Toni Kroos. 

However, for this to happen, Tchouameni needs to step up and take charge on the field, asserting himself as a player his teammates can rely on.

Tchouameni’s reserved playing style has even caused coach Carlo Ancelotti to doubt whether he is the right fit for the midfield. As a result, the Italian has considered shifting him to a centre-back position due to his aerial ability and strong positioning. 

When called upon to fill in for injured players like David Alaba and Eder Militao, Tchouameni has performed admirably. In fact, Ancelotti once also chose him over Nacho.

Injuries have not helped his case

It must be noted that injuries have plagued Tchouameni’s time at Real Madrid, causing him to miss 20% of the matches since joining the team. 

Additionally, Ancelotti has kept him on the bench for another 20% of the games over the past two seasons. This means that Tchouameni has been a starter in only 55% of the matches under Ancelotti’s management. 

His absences have gone largely unnoticed, as he missed four of the six Champions League group matches and the final, having little impact on the team’s overall performance.

In summary, Tchouameni remains a work in progress at Real Madrid. His potential is undeniable, but he has yet to fully realize it on the field. 

With time on his side and a clear understanding of what is expected of him, the hope is that he will eventually rise to the challenge and become a key player for the team. Until then, Tchouameni’s journey at Real Madrid continues to be one of promise and uncertainty.
