Real Madrid were expected to be in transition for at least a couple of years when the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo left the Bernabeu. The young players in the side needed a few years to develop and the ageing core was expected to phase out.

However, Los Blancos barely took one year to return to the highest level. The main reason for the short transition was the consistency of their midfield core.

While the team rebuilt itself around them, the combination of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro held the team’s ship steady with their experience. Yet, the inevitable ageing has come, and cracks in the midfield have been visible this season.

Florentino Perez is heavily invested in improving the forward line in the summer, but the midfield requires equally as much attention.

According to reports from Diario AS, Real Madrid are keeping an eye on the contract of N’Golo Kante at Chelsea. The 12-time UEFA Champions League winners were interested in the French international in 2016 and 2019 too, with Zinedine Zidane being a big fan of the player.

Kante signed a five-year contract extension with the Blues in 2018. His current deal ends in 2023, and renewal has not been agreed upon yet. One year remains on his deal, and Chelsea will be under pressure to sell the player in the summer.

The 31-year-old has been one of the centre-pieced of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, playing 19 Premier League games so far. He has scored two goals and provided three assists in the aforementioned duration.

Real Madrid’s management will have a chance to observe the player when the club take on Chelsea later this month in the Champions League. Nevertheless, the London based club will not make it easy for Los Blancos to prize away one of their most treasured assets.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
