Arda Guler has made quite an impression during his first week or so at Real Madrid. After joining the club earlier in the month, the youngster has impressed onlookers with his technical brilliance and commitment.

Real Madrid have taken note of Guler’s technical abilities and the fact that he has shown a lot of similarities to Rodrygo. As a result, the club have drawn a clear development plan for the young Turk, reports AS.

The Spanish news publications suggest Arda Guler is rated highly in the Real Madrid camp. But the former Fenerbahce starlet still has a lot of ground to cover in terms of his physique.

At 18, Guler still has a tender physique, which might not be enough to help him keep up with the rigours of top-flight football. With that in mind, Real Madrid have drawn up a strategy, which will help the player gain body mass in the near future.

Guler did work with his personal trainer even during the pandemic, in order to achieve a greater body mass. He even ended up gaining three kilos, but Los Blancos believe that the versatile youngster needs to improve the physicality aspects to succeed at the highest level.

As such, Real Madrid have put Guler on a special training program to help Guler improve his physique and stamina without compromising on his speed, creative and technical abilities.

With Carlo Ancelotti advocating for a more ‘rock and roll’ type of football next season, a strong physique and stamina could go a long way in helping Guler settle into things quickly at the Bernabeu.

To that end, the young Turk has accepted the challenge and is ready to put in the extra work in order to improve his physique. The fact that the former Fenerbahce starlet skipped his vacation to arrive at Valdebebas a week early is indicative of his commitment.

But whether or not Guler will be able to live up to the challenge, remains to be seen.

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
