Walking into a team with an in-form Jude Bellingham and Brahim Diaz as direct competitors is far from easy. Doing so with a long list of injuries in the recently concluded months just takes the difficulty one notch higher.

Yet, Arda Guler finds himself in the aforementioned situation in Madrid. The Turkish phenom has indeed made a recovery from his injuries but stares a gargantuan task ahead if he wishes to establish his presence under the manager.

Real Madrid have faith

It is not surprising that Guler has found it difficult to see minutes this season despite his return to fitness. After all, the manager has fitter and more in-form options at his disposal.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, however, Los Blancos really trust Guler and believe that he has a special potential. Their plan with the players remains the same – to protect him and develop him as a long-term asset.

There have been talks of the club considering loaning the player out in the summer so as to maximise his development at a critical stage. Needless to say, such a move will only happen if Los Blancos retain complete control of his future.

Chance arrived?

With Bellingham currently out through injury and Joselu joining him on the sidelines earlier this week, Carlo Ancelotti is down on resources in the final third.

As revealed earlier this week, the manager thus sees Guler to be an option to cover in the final third at this point. Moreover, with Vinicius, Rodrygo and Brahim Diaz all taking starting positions, the protege could well be a first-choice substitute off the bench.

The clash against Sevilla might well be the new signing’s beginning of a new lease of life in Madrid. Yet, the onus is on Guler to ensure that he makes the most of his chances.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
