Leeds United have been credited by the Spanish media with interest in Miguel Gutiérrez since April, and reports of them wanting to sign the Real Madrid left-back have also surfaced in England.
The 19-year-old came up through the ranks of Los Blancos’ youth system and made his first team debut against Cádiz last month.
Defensa Central have relayed the latest claims made in England about Marcelo Bielsa’s side looking to land the youngster and have then provided their own information on this case.
They are of the belief several clubs in England would like to take the defender on loan so that he can continue his development in the Premier League.
Zinedine Zidane’s side view the fullback as a player for the future. He will have an opportunity to strengthen his position in the first team squad next season, if Marcelo leaves the La Liga side in the summer.
The Brazilian’s exit could see Gutiérrez become backup for Ferland Mendy, but this will depend on whether or not the Spanish club end up signing David Alaba.
Alaba is available on a free transfer and his arrival at the Bernabéu would give Leeds United a reasonable chance of taking Gutiérrez in the summer.
The Austrian can operate as a left-back, defensive midfielder or a centre-back and Real Madrid would be tempted to allow Gutiérrez to go out on loan, if they manage to land the current Bayern Munich player.
For now, Gutiérrez could make his first start for Real Madrid, against Granada, as Zidane will be without both Mendy and Marcelo for the clash.
