Both Miguel Gutierrez and Sergio Arribas have committed to Real Madrid until 2024 and 2025 respectively as Real Madrid look to secure the biggest academy names to long term deals.
The news was originally reported in Goal Espana along with the rumored contract details. Gutierrez only just signed a extension with the club until 2024 in March, however, the new deal agreed in July boosted his salary and the original release clause to 40 million euros.
Arribas was the latest to put pen to paper, signing a new four year deal. Like his Castilla teammate, he will also get a wage boost as well as his release clause jumping from 30 to 50 million euros. Apparently this release clause will double should Arribas become a full time first team player and one would presume that Gutierrez clause will also increase under the same circumstances.

Miguel and Arribas would be the better known names amongst several who’ve recently signed new deals. Luis Lopez, Carlos Dotor and Mario Gila have signed deals upto 2024. Antonio Blanco is reportedly on a deal to 2025 as well as the extremely talented Bruno Iglesias who announced his renewal on social media.
It’s been widely reported that Real were keen to hold onto the pillars of Raul’s Castilla team which explains the current spree. Now most of the core players in the current Castilla side are tied down to long term deals as well as some really talented U-19s with more to come in the next few days.
The hope is that, in renewing deals with fringe first teamers like Arribas and Gutierrez, Real can demonstrate the belief they have in both youngsters to succeed at the club. Gutierrez and Arribas are certainly playing their part in this deal. Both players starred in Castilla’s 4-0 win over San Fernando last weekend. Arribas scored the opener from a stunning Gutierrez cross while the full back registered another assist and a goal in Castilla’s first home match of the season and first game back in the Di Stefano since 2019.
