Guti Agrees To Besiktas Deal

Two days after announcing his departure from Real Madrid, midfielder Guti completed his reunion with former coach Bernd Schuster, signing for Istanbul-based Besiktas on Monday.

The 33-year-old midfielder, who has never played for any club but Real Madrid, agreed to a two-year deal worth €2.7 million per season.  The deal is pending a physical examination, which will be done on Tuesday.

Guti make 542 appearances for Real Madrid over the course of 15 seasons, scoring 86 goals.  After losing playing time last year under Manuel Pellegrini, Guti did not figure into the plans of new coach José Mourinho, who allowed the midfielder to leave on a free despite having one season reminding on his Real Madrid contract.
