Manchester United eyeing Girona's Miguel Gutierrez despite Real Madrid's potential buy-back

In a potential transfer saga brewing, Manchester United's pursuit of Girona's left-back Miguel Gutierrez has captured attention, despite the looming threat of Real Madrid activating a buy-back option.

Gutierrez's Emergence and Interest from Premier League Giants

The Spanish talent, hailing from Real Madrid's esteemed academy, made a bold move in 2022, departing for Girona. Since then, he has etched his name as a linchpin in Girona's defensive setup. With 25 La Liga appearances this season, contributing a goal and four assists, Gutierrez's stellar form hasn't gone unnoticed.

Reports from Mundo Deportivo suggest that Manchester United, among other English clubs, have kept a close eye on Gutierrez's progress, contemplating a summer swoop. Despite a €8m (£6m) buy-back clause in his contract with Real Madrid, which the Spanish giants are reportedly inclined to activate, United's interest persists. Real Madrid's pursuit of Bayern Munich's Alphonso Davies adds further intrigue to the situation.

Gutierrez's Focus Amid Transfer Speculation

While transfer rumours swirl, Gutierrez maintains his focus on Girona's La Liga campaign. With the club firmly entrenched in the title race, the 22-year-old remains committed to his current side. Girona's next challenge awaits against Mallorca, where Gutierrez aims to continue his impressive run on the pitch.
