There has been a lot of noise surrounding Arda Guler and how Real Madrid have handled the Turkish prodigy in recent weeks.

After beating Barcelona to the 19-year-old’s signing last summer, there was a lot of excitement at Real Madrid surrounding Guler and his potential.

But three back-to-back injuries prevented him from making his debut for Los Blancos until January this year. Now, even though he is fully fit, the Turkish prodigy has hardly been used by Carlo Ancelotti & co., leading to the youngster growing disillusioned and unhappy.

As such, there has been talks of a summer exit, potentially on loan, although nothing is concrete as of yet.

Loan exit the best option believes Ancelotti

Real Madrid will see Endrick arrive at the club in the summer once he turns 18, and the plan is for the Brazilian wonderkid to be included in the first-team dynamics right away.

In fact, some speculations even suggest that the current Palmeiras sensation could even be handed the iconic No. 9 kit for next season.

Beyond that, Kylian Mbappe appears all set to land at the Santiago Bernabeu as well. The 25-year-old will be leaving PSG as a free agent and is understood to be close to finalising his move to Real Madrid.

As such, the competition in the attacking unit will increase further and it would impact Guler’s game-time, with the youngster hardly featuring even now.

And thus, Ancelotti believes that a loan move away from the Bernabeu might be the best option for the Turkish prodigy, with reports suggesting that there are already talks undergoing between Real Madrid and AC Milan over a possible switch.

Speaking in an interview with Sport BILD (h/t AS), Germany legend Michael Ballack has claimed that Bayer Leverkusen sensation Florian Wirtz is ready to play for Real Madrid.

Wirtz is a player that Real Madrid have been closely monitoring for a while now, with the German sensation being seen as a long-term replacement for Toni Kroos, who announced his retirement yesterday.

A move for Wirtz is being planned for the summer of 2025 and Ballack believes that the Bundesliga title winner with Leverkusen is ready for the big move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

“Wirtz is ready for Real Madrid,” said Ballack.

“In terms of football, Wirtz can definitely play for Real Madrid. You can also see it in Jude Bellingham after his move from BVB: when you play with even better players, you become even better,” he added.

Wirtz has a contract with Bayer Leverkusen that runs until the summer of 2027. As things stand, the new German champions have no intentions of selling their prized asset this year.

However, there appears to be an acceptance that the German international will be on the move in 2025.

Other top clubs like Manchester City and Bayern Munich are also understood to be interested, but Real Madrid are likely to beat them in the race should it come down to that next year.

A move for Wirtz, though, could cost in excess of €100 million for Real Madrid should they do indeed decide to proceed with his signing next year.
