As Luis Enrique edges closer towards an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain, the manager has begun setting up a list of demands for the Parisian hierarchy.

Once PSG can finalize the details of Christophe Galtier’s departure and make Enrique’s arrival official in the media, greater clarity will be observed in the club’s transfer market strategy. However, some details have already emerged.

According to SPORT, Enrique has asked the board of his potential new club to acquire the signature of Real Madrid attacking prodigy, Rodrygo.

The former Barcelona boss has been working in Paris for two days to analyse the team’s demands and the situation with Kylian Mbappe’s future up in the air. And one of his first requests from him is that they make a move for Rodrygo.

The report further claims that Enrique, who was also in talks to be appointed by Chelsea, made a similar request to the English side, deeming Rodrygo’s arrival as one of the conditions for him joining the club.

Rodrygo is not for sale was the memo by Real Madrid, who had already declined to enter into negotiations. The player’s deal with the Royal Whites runs out in 2025, but a long-term renewal is already understood to be in place.

After receiving the number 11 jersey number, Rodrygo claimed to be ready to take responsibility and carry the weight the prestigious number brought with it. With Benzema’s departure, it is expected that he will have an even more prominent role up front.

In addition to the player’s desire to stay put at the Merengues, Real Madrid already ruled out the equation of working on transfer business with PSG, a club they have already endured difficulties negotiating.

Despite the interest in signing Kylian Mbappe from PSG, Real Madrid do not consider the prospect of Rodrygo entering the deal, who remains one of the key pillars of Florentino Perez’s plans for the present and the future.

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
