Arda Guler’s signing was announced with great anticipation as Real Madrid were getting their hands on one of Turkey’s most prized young talents.

However, the youngster’s stint in the Spanish capital has not gone according to plan.

Due to injuries, the 19-year-old missed the whole first half of the season, while he has been drip-fed minutes sporadically even after making his comeback in January.

Indeed, coach Carlo Ancelotti has only used Guler on seven occasions in all competitions, for a total of 98 minutes, indicating a lack of confidence in the player.

Owing to the lack of game time Guler is being given, an exit this summer is not being ruled out. While reports of him requesting a departure were denied, several clubs continue to contemplate a loan deal for the teenage sensation.

As per Fichajes with limited minutes at Real Madrid, both player and club are considering a loan for next season.

Three clubs vying for Guler’s signature on loan

And the three clubs interested in carrying out such an operation are AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, and Bayer Leverkusen.

AC Milan already have a positive experience with Real Madrid’s youngsters, as they previously signed Brahim Diaz on loan, who enjoyed a solid spell with the Italian outfit.

As such, they may be willing to provide Arda Guler with the game time and development he seeks.

Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, has also indicated interest in the 19-year-old. Known as a breeding ground for young talents to flourish, the German club may provide Guler with the ideal environment to further refine his skills.

Lastly, the Turkish jewel is being considered by Bayer Leverkusen as a possible replacement for Florian Wirtz, who may depart the team in the summer following widespread interest.

The Bundesliga champions are also built with a young core, providing Guler with a platform to fit right in.

Time will tell what Guler’s future entails, but the upcoming Euros which will be held in Germany could prove decisive.

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
