Real Madrid left-back Ferland Mendy is not assured of his place next season. Despite having a contract until 2025, the 27-year-old defender might leave in the summer after failing to impress the coaching staff.

As a result, the Frenchman is available on the market and Premier League side Arsenal are said to be studying his option. There were sources that claimed that the Gunners initially demanded a price from Madrid, and if a report from SPORT is to be believed, Madrid will be willing to sell him for €20 million.

Interestingly enough, Tottenham Hotspur are also said to be interested in his acquisition.

Following the elimination from the UEFA Champions League, the season is all but over for Real Madrid. This means the management is already looking forward to the new season and how the team might shape up.

At the moment, it is certain that Eduardo Camavinga will not be a full-time left-back, meaning that if Mendy departs, the Los Blancos will have to hunt for a left-back, even though they will sign Fran Garcia. David Alaba is an option but even the Austrian prefers to play through centre.

As a result, interest in Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies has begun to take shape. It is believed that the acquisition of Davies is gaining weight, but the player is not for sale this summer.

In any way, Mendy’s future at Real Madrid is extremely uncertain. The 27-year-old has been rather inconsistent in his display and has not repaid the faith of his manager, while injuries have also plagued the Frenchman.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, they would listen to an offer if it is lucrative enough and €20 million seems like a fair price considering his performances. This will, indeed, be reflected as a huge loss since they bought him for €48 million.

Real Madrid maintain full confidence in Turkish starlet despite injury woes

Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
