Real Madrid are having a good season so far but Carlo Ancelotti is the type of stern manager who can be proud but never satisfied. Therefore, the Italian boss will certainly have some big summer transfer plans. As we know, Kylian Mbappe is expected to join the Bernabeu this summer, with Real Madrid also interested in signing Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich.

Kylian Mbappe is technically a free transfer since Los Blancos won't be paying a fee to Paris Saint-Germain. However, wage demands and other financial implications mean that Madrid may have to reallocate some funds. This puts the potential move for Alphonso Davies at risk.

Real Madrid could sign their former player from La Liga rivals

But fear not, Real Madrid fans, for Ancelotti has deciphered his own master plan. According to reports in Spain from Cadena SER, Real Madrid could re-sign their former player Miguel Gutierrez to bolster their backline. Gutierrez represented Real through his youth career and spent one season in the first team before being sold to Girona in 2022.

Bringing Gutierrez back to the Bernabeu could be done through a buy-back clause which was very strategically placed into his contract. It means that €8m would be enough for Real Madrid to secure their former player.

What's interesting about this deal, as pointed out by The 4th Official, is that Bayern Munich are also eyeing Gutierrez as their Alphonso Davies replacement. Therefore, logically, the report has suggested that Real Madrid would re-sign Gutierrez to tempt Bayern Munich to lower their asking price for Davies, a win-win for all parties (except Girona).

A move like this wouldn't be completely unlike Real Madrid, who have pulled off some incredibly well-devised transfer plans in recent years, particularly since Florentino Perez became club president in 2000 and revolutionised how the club conduct their transfers.


Do you think bringing back Miguel Gutierrez is a good call for Real Madrid?
