As per reports in the Spanish media, Man Utd have agreed a deal to sign Miguel Gutierrez, who currently plays for Girona for a reported fee of £30m and will see the youngster sign a 5yrs contract with United in coming days as a replacement for injury prone luke Shaw. Manchester United get first deal done as CL agrees to United move.


According to reports in the Spanish media, Manchester United have agreed to sign Miguel Gutierrez from Girona. The 22-year-old was previously part of the Real Madrid squad that clinched both La Liga and the Champions League titles two years ago. However, it is with Girona that Gutierrez has truly made his mark, especially in the past two seasons under manager Michel.

Gutierrez’s current contract with Girona runs until 2027, and he earns a relatively modest salary of around £280,000 per year. Notably, Real Madrid retains a buy-back option for the player this summer, valued at just 8 million euros, according to Cadena Ser. The Express has reported that Real Madrid plans to activate this clause but has already agreed on a deal to sell Gutierrez to Manchester United for £34 million. United are looking for a replacement for Luke Shaw.

Last season, Gutierrez demonstrated his abilities both defensively and offensively. He started 35 league games, scored 2 goals, provided 7 assists, and helped Girona achieve 12 clean sheets, leading them to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. Luke Shaw, despite being a dedicated player for Manchester United, has struggled with injuries over the years. Last season, under Erik ten Hag, Shaw managed to start only 12 Premier League games due to muscle issues.

Given Shaw’s injury history, Manchester United are keen on finding a reliable replacement, and Gutierrez fits the bill. However, the Spaniard will have to forgo Champions League football next season to join Manchester United.
