Jude Bellingham has lit up Spanish football this season with his seamless adaptation to life at Real Madrid Madrid. His deputy, Brahim Diaz, has also excelled in the attacking midfield role for Los Blancos, effectively capitalising on his chances.

The result of the duo’s unparalleled success, however, is visible in Arda Guler’s position. The Turkish phenom did indeed spend a good part of the season injured, but he is now fit and is yet to see a tangible improvement in his situation.

Guler has only played 50 minutes in this season’s La Liga, and his lack of minutes has sparked talks of a departure.

As revealed by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Bayern Munich are interested in the 19-year-old midfield sensation and are willing to offer up to €40 million for his services.

The Bavarians, however, are looking for a permanent transfer which does not appear to be on Real Madrid or Guler’s plans as it stands.

After all, he is determined to succeed in the Spanish capital and has the manager’s backing.

Even though the competition for places will get stronger due to the impending arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, Guler is unlikely to be sold while the player himself is eager to stay and prove himself.

A break after the break?

Guler made a sensational impact on Real Madrid’s recent game against Alaves in La Liga. Coming on for Vinicius Jr, he was inches away from scoring an absolute Golazo from distance.

The Brazilian talisman is all set to miss Real Madrid’s upcoming clash against Deportivo Alaves after the international break through suspension. If everything goes to plan, Guler could thus have a bigger role to play on the night and have his deserved break.

While the youngster is understandably frustrated at his situation under Carlo Ancelotti, he is one for the long run and is under no immediate pressure to shine.

A slow incorporation over the coming weeks could go a long way in improving Guler’s confidence and paving the way to a longer stay in Madrid.

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.

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.
