Arda Guler’s future at Real Madrid is undecided, to say the least, and if a report from SPORT is to be believed, the team from the Spanish capital might offload him to Italy on loan in the summer.

The 19-year-old was signed from Fenerbahce last summer for a fee quoted to be around €20 million. The youngster’s tenure was hampered by constant injury challenges and this season alone, he has missed 16 matches through fitness.

As a result, the 19-year-old attacking midfielder is unhappy and getting fed up with the situation, meaning that a possible loan deal over the summer could be on the cards.

So what is Real Madrid’s plan?

It goes without saying that Real Madrid are confronted with the challenge of resolving the issue, as the Turkish player and his associates feel disillusioned by the club’s unfulfilled promises.

Assurances of a first-team and a prominent role have not materialized, causing discontent within the youngster. In fact, the problem has escalated to a national concern in Turkey, where the player is highly regarded. 

In an effort to overcome the tension, Real Madrid are reportedly contemplating a loan arrangement for Guler in the upcoming season, with AC Milan emerging as a potential destination, following a strategy akin to the successful loan deal with Brahim Diaz.

Talks have already begun

Reports in Italy are affirming that discussions between the two clubs regarding a prospective loan for the next season are underway, subject to the player’s approval on the move.

In all fairness, Milan appear to be a viable exit route, although other offers may be on the table for Guler as well.

Guler, eager for substantial playing time this season in preparation for the UEFA Euro, is now facing disappointment.

Aware of the intensity surrounding the issue, Real Madrid recognize the need to delicately handle the situation to avoid a potential crack between the player and the team.

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.
