Real Madrid wonderkid Arda Guler is attracting major interest from clubs across Europe ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old sensation was starved of minutes in his debut season with Los Blancos, having finished with just 12 appearances in which he managed to score six goals.

With Kylian Mbappe and Endrick now arriving, minutes are set to be even more difficult for the Turkish international in the upcoming season.

As such, numerous clubs are lining up a loan move for Guler, with a new team now joining the race.

Juventus want Guler on loan

Indeed, according to reports in Italy, as relayed by Mundo Deportivo, Juventus have shown an interest in signing Arda Guler on loan from Real Madrid in the summer.

The Bianconeri join the likes of Sevilla, Real Betis, and Getafe, among others, who are seeking the services of the 19-year-old special talent on a season-long loan deal.

As mentioned earlier, Guler did not get enough minutes last season, mostly due to the fact that he was out with injuries for the first half of the season, following which Carlo Ancelotti was cautious with the youngster.

But when given a chance in the latter stages of the campaign, Guler did make an impact, scoring some important goals.

As such, despite the competition for places and strong interest from other teams, Real Madrid do not intend to let Guler leave the club in the summer.

The manager wants to keep the teenage sensation at the Santiago Bernabeu and help him continue his progression.

For now, the doors to a summer loan exit appear to be closed, but if Guler does not play much in the first half of the season, a January departure might not be ruled out.

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
