Summer signing Arda Guler has had bad luck with injuries ever since joining Real Madrid in the summer. 

As such, the 18-year-old is yet to make a single appearance for his new team, and a report from SPORT has mentioned that the young footballer has decided to take advantage of the international break to achieve full fitness.

The report adds that for the aforementioned, Guler has opted to travel to Istanbul for his treatment. 

Injuries have plagued the young footballer consistently since his €20 million signing from Fenerbahce and currently, the prospect of the highly anticipated debut of the Turkish talent seems nearly impossible.

What’s happening with Guler?

Reports suggest that Guler travelled to Istanbul in the last few hours to undergo a medical consultation and explore new treatments in the quest for an alternative solution to finally overcome his recurrent muscle issues.

Sources from Madrid indicate that the footballer is currently grappling with a problem in his right quadriceps, necessitating an extension of his rest period for complete recovery.

Guler’s injuries have already taken a toll on Real Madrid, resulting in the departure of Niko Mihic, the head of the first team’s medical services.

Despite facing scrutiny since the previous season, Mihic’s position became unjustified due to the Turk’s recurrent physical setbacks, ultimately leading to the club’s decision to part ways with the Croatian doctor.

When will he debut?

During his initial days in training at Real Madrid, issues with the internal meniscus were identified, necessitating an extended recovery period. Upon rejoining the first-team activities, Guler faced a minor muscular ailment which postponed his eagerly awaited debut.

All signs pointed to his participation in the match against Braga where he was named on the bench. However, this proved unattainable. 

Guler remained on the bench as Carlo Ancelotti excused him, and shortly afterwards, it was disclosed that a renewed issue with his right quadriceps was the culprit. 

Presently, the most recent updates indicate that Guler’s debut is likely to be postponed for at least another month.

Real Madrid’s teenage sensation to join camp on Wednesday, Brazilian core to return later

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
