After reports came out on Wednesday claiming that Real Madrid are interested in Fenerbahce prodigy Arda Guler, MARCA has now come out with a fresh update confirming that the Merengues are indeed following the 18-year-old wonderkid.

Guler has been one of the breakout stars in Turkey, having enjoyed an impressive 2022/23 campaign, finishing with six goals and seven assists from 35 appearances in all competitions.

Naturally, he has been attracting interest from several top clubs including the likes of Barcelona and AC Milan. And now, Real Madrid too have emerged as a suitor for the Turkish international with four caps.

If Guler does join the Merengues, the plan would be for him to spend some time with the club’s Castilla outfit before becoming a part of the first-team setup.

However, that is something that not might appeal to the teenage wonderkid.

Indeed, according to Turkish journalist Volkan Demir, while Guler dreams about joining Real Madrid at some time, at this point in his career the youngster wishes to join a club where he can play regularly at the senior level.

Real Madrid have made it a habit to recruit top young talents from across the globe. Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes, and more recently Endrick and Jude Bellingham have ended up signing for the Spanish capital giants.

However, Guler might not follow the same path as he wishes to continue playing regularly. But he does dream about Real Madrid as the next big step in his career.

So, it appears that Real Madrid’s pursuit of the teenage prospect, who has a release clause worth around €18 million, might not yield the desired result this summer.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
