​Former ​Real Madrid and Spain midfielder Guti looks set to be appointed as Besiktas' new assistant coach after a positive meeting with club president Fikret Forest, according to reports in Turkey.


NTV Spor claims that the 41-year-old met with Forest recently with the view of taking a coaching position at the Vodafone Arena alongside current manager Senol Gunes, who has been in charge of the Istanbul-based since 2015.


The deal is allegedly subject to the approval of Gunes and the sorting of a few finer financial details.

Guti would be no stranger to Besiktas, having joined the Turkish side in 2010 whilst still a player, after deciding to leave Real Madrid after a 14-year stay. Guti won three Champions League titles and five ​La Liga titles among a host of other trophies during his time with Los Blancos.


After deciding to hang up his boots in 2011, Guti would return to Real Madrid to help coach the youth side in the 2013/14 season, before progressing to the Under-18's and then the Under-19's, where he is currently situated.


There has been intense speculation surrounding the managerial future of Guti, with the Spaniard linked with Scottish side St Mirren, before sensationally being and touted as a possible replacement for Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid's first team boss.
