Miguel Gutierrez made history at Real Madrid in the summer of 2019 by becoming the first youth team player born in 2001 to debut with the seniors.
It was in Munich, against Fenerbahce, which sparked great excitement within the club given that he was looked at as one of the most talented players in La Fabrica.
His contract was immediately extended, until June 30, 2024, but his spell with the first team was short-lived.
Other than linking up with the first team for the occasional training session, he did not re-enter Zinedine Zidane‘s plans.
That was until Wednesday, when he was named in the squad for the LaLiga Santander match against Cadiz, and entered the game in the second half.
Gutierrez left a very good impression after his display against Cadiz. He has a left foot that has captivated every coach who has worked with him at Madrid since he was young.
The latest to admire Gutierrez within Real Madrid is Castilla coach Raul, with whom he won the Youth League last season.
The Castilla coach has been key to keeping him at Los Blancos this season, as several LaLiga Santander and Segunda Division sides have knocked on his door in the last two transfer windows. At 19 years old, he feels ready to play in the top tier, but his big dream is to do that with Real Madrid.
He looks to have finally turned a corner after two years out of the first team set up, and will be hoping that the appearances start coming with more frequency.
Gutierrez is the sixth player from the Real Madrid academy to make his first team debut this season after Marvin Park, Sergio Arribas, Victor Chust, Hugo Duro and Antonio Blanco.
