Arda Guler has had a difficult time at Real Madrid since joining the club in the summer transfer window.

There was a lot of hype surrounding the Turkish international when he joined the club, especially after his stellar spell at Fenerbahce.

But halfway into the campaign, Guler is yet to even make a single appearance for Real Madrid. His progress has been stilted by a series of injuries.

Bundesliga clubs want to sign Guler on loan

In light of Guler’s struggles with injuries this season, Bundesliga clubs have sensed an opportunity to sign the player on loan in this January transfer window.

According to Fabrizio Romano, a host of German clubs are interested in signing Guler on a loan deal in January.

Apart from Bundesliga outfits, several European clubs are also interested in signing the Real Madrid superstar.

A host of young players in the past have sought a move to Germany in order to prove themselves at the highest level of football. In Real Madrid’s case, the most prominent example was Reinier, even though his loan spell at Dortmund wasn’t really successful.

Real Madrid have no intention of loaning Guler

However, the report suggests that Real Madrid have no intention to offload Guler anytime soon, even if it’s a loan deal.

The Spanish giants consider Guler a part of the squad. Despite his struggles with injuries, the club have retained their faith in the player and want him to make an impact in the first team soon.

Guler, in fact, has recovered fully and was notably included in the squad in the last game against Mallorca, even though he did not make an appearance from the bench.

One can expect the Turkish international to make his Real Madrid debut in the upcoming matches against Arandina, Atletico Madrid and Almeria.

Real Madrid midfielder wants to follow in Kroos’ footsteps and retire at the club

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos recently shared that he plans to retire after this season. Now, according to a report from MARCA (h/t Madrid Zone), it seems Luka Modric, another key player, might also be eyeing retirement in Madrid.

Modric, who is 39 years old, has an agreement in principle with Real Madrid to stay for one more season. However, with manager Carlo Ancelotti’s backing for both Modric and Kroos to stay, it has come down to the fact that only one will remain at the club.

Is Modric returning now? 

No, not yet. Like Kroos, Modric wants to finish his career at Real Madrid. If he wanted to retire, he would not have agreed to extend his contract.

It is to be noted that Modric is currently one of the top earners at Real Madrid, but his high salary did not align with his reduced playing time.

Despite his wish to stay, the club was not initially keen on keeping him under such terms.

However, things have changed recently. The club is now considering renewing Modric’s contract due to several reasons. 

First, the midfielder is open to a pay cut and second, his positive influence on younger players like Arda Guler is valued. Lastly, his desire to retire as a Madrid player is a significant factor.

Interestingly, Modric has turned down tempting offers from Saudi Arabia and the MLS to stay with Real Madrid.

Throughout this season, the Croatian international has accepted his decreased playing time, although it was challenging for him given his competitive spirit and pride. 

His role might diminish further once Real Madrid find a replacement for Kroos next season, but for now, Modric will continue to be a prominent figure for the team.
