Real Madrid finds itself at a crossroads in the left-back position, and coach Carlo Ancelotti is looking for solutions to strengthen this position. Despite having Fran García in the squad, his performance has not met the expectations of the white club. A clear indication of this situation occurred in last Saturday’s match in Montilivi, where Ancelotti chose to move Eduardo Camavinga to the left back.
Surprisingly, Ancelotti’s decision to use Camavinga in that position was not unwise, as the young Frenchman demonstrated an exceptional performance and stood out as one of the best players in the match. However, this solution appears to be temporary, and Real Madrid are looking for a long-term option to reinforce their defensive line on the sides.
The main one on the candidate white club’s wish list is Alphonso Davies. The talented Canadian full-back is the favorite of the sports management and president Florentino Pérez. It has been rumored that Real Madrid has already started negotiations to try to sign him. His contract with Bayern Munich expires in 2025, which could open the door for his arrival in 2024 if he does not renew with the German club.
There is another ‘low cost’ name on the table
However, as ‘ Planeta Real Madrid points out, in addition to Davies, another name has emerged in the last few hours: Miguel Gutiérrez. This player, who trained in the Real Madrid youth academy and made his debut with the first team, was transferred to Girona for 4 million euros in 2022. In a usual strategy, Florentino Pérez retained 50% of the player’s rights, which means that Real Madrid could sign him for half of his release clause, which amounts to 40 million euros.
