Real Madrid have a better, young left back behind Ferland Mendy

Miguel Gutierrez has not played for Real Madrid since the start of the season, but he did not look out of place in the first team. The 20-year-old was one of the standouts against Real Betis, showing plenty of fight in a gritty 1-0 win over former manager Manuel Pellegrini’s talented side.

Defensively, Miguel can hold his own, even as he is still a growing defender. Offensively, he is already one of the top fullbacks in Spain, racking up assist after assist with Castilla due to his gorgeous crosses and through balls. Miguel is as classy as they come on the ball, and fans around Europe have taken notice of the prospect’s technical quality.

Not only is Miguel five years younger than Reguilon, but he may already be better. Miguel’s performances at the end of the 2020/21 season against the likes of Athletic Bilbao were more than good enough for LaLiga. Madridistas were hyping him up as not only the next big thing, but already as one of the best left backs in the division for the upcoming 2021/22 season.

Carlo Ancelotti hasn’t given Miguel a chance to shine, but Madrid know how good he is. Whether he goes out on loan or plays for the first team, he could have a great 2022/23 season in the top flight. Hopefully, he gets to play for Real Madrid next season, because he is good enough. Clearly, it is better to give him a chance for free than to pay a huge fee to Tottenham to bring Reguilon back into the fold.
