Real Madrid star Guti


West Ham’s hopes of making a sensational swoop for former Real Madrid star Guti have been ended after the midfielder announced he is set to retire instead.

The 35-year-old had been training at Upton Park and was a free agent having been released by Turkish side Besiktas.

The Hammers were hopeful of agreeing a deal for the playmaker, who is regarded as a legend and one of the original Galacticos at Real, having spent 15 years at the club where he made more than 500 appearances.

But Guti was unable to agree terms with West Ham and has now told Spanish newspaper AS that he will stop playing and take a coaching course at Real’s Valdebebas training ground instead.
