It took Arda Guler close to seven months to make his debut for Real Madrid, but in a matter of hour on the pitch against minnows Arandina, the 18-year-old showcased the immense talent and potential he possesses.

Signed in the summer amid interest from the who’s who of European football, the Turkish sensation endured an injury-riddled start to life in Spain, and had to exercise immense patience to make his debut for Los Blancos.

But, making his debut against Arandina in the Copa del Rey this past weekend, young Guler showed why Real Madrid bet heavily on him during the summer.

Real Madrid happy with Guler’s debut

Now, MARCA’s Jose Felix Diaz is reporting that Real Madrid are delighted to see Guler out on the pitch and the level he showed on his debut.

At the same time, though, the Merengues do not want to get carried away by euphoria and are clear that his progression must take its natural course and not be rushed in the slightest.

The confidence in what he can do is absolute. Real Madrid are aware that they have a special talent on their hands in Guler. But there will be no rush or pressure on him to make instant impact and he will be allowed time to grow in stature at the club.

The report states that It has been clear to Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti from the outset that in Guler, he has a pure talent for football in his hands.

But, now that he has overcome his injuries, the Merengues coaching staff believe that it is time for him to adapt his body to the physical demands of modern football.

In the training session held on Tuesday afternoon, the coach and the player had a small chat, which is part of Ancelotti’s plans to transmit total confidence to the young attacking midfielder.

Beyond that, the people in the dressing room, Guler’s teammates, are his first allies are fully behind him. They have shielded him from outside noise when he needed it most and now they are by his side because they know of his talent.

Dani Ceballos’ gesture of letting him take the free-kick against Arandina shows that he is appreciated and much is expected of him.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
