Jose Mourinho looked to sign a number of players during his time at Manchester United, but was rarely allowed to splash the cash in the way that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been allowed to. The Portuguese is once again thought to be interested in a former target from Real Madrid, but it looks as though he will be rejected for a second time.

The left-back is still yet to make his senior debut for Real, and has spent the season with the renown Castilla side.
But instead of seeking regular senior football, it appears that Gutierrez will look to break into Zinedine Zidane’s first team.
“If they give him minutes and he plays games, he will be a top left-back,” Spain U17 coach David Gordo told AS last year.

“He has quality, ability to get forward, a nice strike, he is ambitious and he has a winning mentality… he has a very bright future.”

“We understand that the one that is most attractive at this moment in time is Barcelona.
