Since then, the technically gifted midfielder has rejected a number of offers to return to the game, but has revealed exclusively to Goal.com that he is close to agreeing a deal with newly promoted West Ham to play in the Premier League next season.
Guti told Goal.com: "Yes West Ham are interested but nothing is decided yet. We are negotiating."
However, the veteran player has warned any potential suitor that he will not settle for a short-term role in the team, messaging via Twitter: "I'm not going to any team just to do pre-season, be it West ham or any other team. Whoever wants me should sign me. If not, I'll stay at home."
The midfielder played 14 times for Spain, having turned out on 542 occasions for Madrid and made 40 appearances for Besiktas. He is 36 in October.
