€17.5 million wonderkid dreams of Real Madrid, idolises former playmaker – report

The name of Arda Guler is gaining more and more traction by the day as links with Real Madrid have mainly been at the forefront.

The Turkish sensation has been deemed as a player with enormous potential, and his €17.5 million release clause has many of Europe’s top sides frothing over him.

The prospect of seeing Guler don the Madrid outfit is further strengthened by a new revelation by ESPN. According to the report, Gler has been supporting Real Madrid since his idol, Mesut Ozil joined the club. The report also states that the Merengues are his dream club.

Ozil, who has Turkish ancestry, unsurprisingly has a huge fan following in Turkey, with Guler, one of football’s brightest young talents, among his admirers. The two were even teammates briefly at Fenerbahce and the 17-year-old took the No. 10 shirt at the club after the ex-Real Madrid playmaker’s departure.

However, the admiration likely does not solely stem from a similar background but also due to the uncanny resemblance between both midfielders.

The German international marked history at Real Madrid, scoring 27 goals and providing 81 assists in 159 appearances for the Merengues. Ozil’s nifty feet, paired with exceptional playmaking prowess, ranked him as an incredible entertainer in the Spanish capital.

The left-footed Fenerbahçe sensation is also one of those footballers that make supporters sit up and take notice. Guler is capable of dismantling defenses with piercing passes or adventurous carries.

However, despite idolizing the Real Madrid icon, the Turkish pearl also is rumoured to be one of Barcelona’s top targets. The Merengues will thus be facing stiff competition for the youngster.

Even so, if they manage to make their project more appealing as compared to their competitors, Los Blancos may have a strong edge in negotiations. After all, Ozil was also lured by the club’s enthusiasm to acquire his signature.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
