The 22-year-old has been a regular for the joint La Liga leaders this term, with a goal and assist to his name in 18 league games.
The Red Devils have had one of their scouts closely observing Gutierrez in recent weeks, and he impressed in yesterday’s 4-3 win against Atletico Madrid and the 4-2 victory over Barcelona last month.
The high football IQ and attacking profile of the Real Madrid academy graduate have impressed Man United, but his old club hold the keys to his future.
They still own 50% of the player’s rights and included a sell-on-clause in the deal which took him to Girona in 2022.
AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund are also keeping tabs on Gutierrez, and the Bundesliga club had a £10.5 million offer turned down last summer.
His current contract ends in June 2027, but around £22m could be enough for Man United and other suitors to land him.
The Girona star is a solid crosser of the ball, passes well and gets past opponents with his dribbling skills, something Barca and Atletico can testify to.
However, with his club currently challenging for the La Liga title, a move to United this month is unlikely.
He has a chance to win the league and feature in the Champions League next term, so Man United must finish in the top four to have a realistic chance of landing Gutierrez in the summer.
Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot are currently available to play at left-back for the Red Devils, with Tyrell Malacia also due to return soon.
