Journalist Tomas González-Martin writes for El Debate that Arda Guler’s skill and quality have left Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti and his coaching staff in sheer disbelief.

After a deep analysis, the Madrid sports management has concluded that Guler will be a proper offensive reinforcement, which is why everyone at the club is eagerly waiting for him to recover from his injury because he will receive many opportunities this season.

Real Madrid signed Guler from Turkish side Fenerbahce on a six-year deal following an initial payment of €20 million plus €10 million in add-ons, which was significantly more than his €17.5 million termination clause.

A lot expected from the youngster

It is no secret that despite not playing a single game this season, Guler has impressed his teammates in training alone. Footage of him dazzling his new teammates did rounds across social media soon after he completed his first session with Real Madrid.

Now, hopes have soared skyward as whispers circulate that Guler might just emerge as this season’s revelation. 

Right now, at the apex of the pyramid of prospects of new signings at Real Madrid is Jude Bellingham. In a symphony of talents converging, Fran Garcia’s stars have not merely risen but have already ignited a constellation of promise.

The narrative extends further, with Joselu’s role in the grand tapestry acquiring augmented importance and his contributions are poised to shape key junctures, especially after Vinicius Jr’s injury.

Then there is Guler, who is yet to play a game for the team from the Spanish capital this season.

Injuries have hampered Guler’s start

Guler has not played a single minute of football for Real Madrid thus far, due to an injury he suffered in pre-season.

Having undergone surgery to treat the issue, the 18-year-old Turkish prodigy is currently in rehabilitation and is expected to return to action in October.

Ancelotti and his staff are eagerly waiting for the former Fenerbahce to get back on the field. And once he does, all eyes will be on Guler to see whether he can rise to the challenge and meet the expectations placed on him.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
