After securing the La Liga title, coach Carlo Ancelotti started experimenting extensively with his lineup, using the remaining games to give playing time to fringe players.

Among the players who benefitted the most from increased play time was Arda Guler, who completely turned his situation around with consistent performances.

Even though he spent most of the season on the sidelines due to injury relapses, Guler scored five goals in his last five games for Los Blancos, bursting into life in the campaign’s final phase.

Real Madrid maintain faith in Guler

According to Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Zone) Real Madrid have received numerous inquiries, specifically six to seven, about the availability of Arda Guler.

However, despite interest from various clubs, the Merengues’ response has been consistent and clear: they have no intention of loaning the Turkish jewel out.

Having signed him just last summer for a fairly hefty price tag, especially given his age, Real Madrid aim to continue his development at the club.

This decision underscores Real Madrid’s commitment to integrating Guler into their first-team plans and their belief in his potential to contribute significantly to the squad.

While the arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick are sure to increase competition in the squad, Real Madrid believes that Guler has earned continuity at the club.

The feeling is mutual

Although the 19-year-old has been used sparingly throughout the season, the player is also not keen on parting ways.

In fact, reports have previously mentioned that Guler has not requested a departure, despite several clubs showing interest in him.

Having proved his worth in the final games of La Liga with vital contributions against heavyweights like Villarreal and Real Sociedad, the player trusts his abilities to acquire regular game time.

And in the upcoming Euros with Turkey, Guler will be vying to demonstrate his qualities further on the big stage.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
