According to a report from SPORT, AC Milan are once again eyeing a Real Madrid talent, this time focusing on the promising young star Arda Guler. 

Interestingly, the Italian team’s interest is reminiscent of their successful acquisition of Brahim Diaz. 

Guler, a player coveted by many top European clubs, ended his season with Real Madrid in spectacular fashion, scoring six goals in limited appearances. 

His performance at the European Championship with Turkey has only heightened interest in him, with several clubs approaching Real Madrid for a loan deal. However, Guler is determined to stay and prove himself at Real Madrid.

Real Madrid might consider AC Milan’s proposal

According to the outlet, AC Milan have presented a compelling proposal to Real Madrid, aiming to replicate the ‘Brahim Diaz operation.’ 

It must be noted that Brahim spent three fruitful seasons with Milan, gaining valuable experience and becoming a key player for the team.

The loan agreement included a purchase option for Milan at €22 million, with Real Madrid having the option to buy him back for €27 million the following season. 

Ultimately, Real Madrid decided to end the loan, recognising Diaz’s improved performance and reintegrating him into their squad despite fierce competition.

For Real Madrid, it is said that they are intrigued by this opportunity and are of the idea that Guler might grow faster in a competitive environment just like Brahim did.

It’s time for Guler now

Right now, Milan are willing to take on Guler’s salary and are keen on including a purchase option, similar to the arrangement with Brahim. 

However, Real Madrid are hesitant to let go of Guler, viewing him as a key player for their future. At just 18 years old, Guler has already showcased his talent at the European Championship, emerging as Turkey’s standout player.

It must be remembered that Guler’s contract with Real Madrid runs until 2029, and when he signed, one of his conditions was to join the team immediately. 

Real Madrid had offered him an additional year at Fenerbahce, but Guler declined, opting instead to jump straight into the challenges at Real Madrid. 

Despite numerous loan offers, Guler remains committed to staying at the club, believing he needs to earn his minutes even though he currently starts as a substitute under Ancelotti.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
