Real Madrid listening to offers for Spanish duo – report

Carlo Ancelotti’s second spell at Real Madrid has seen a sharp demarcation of roles to players. The manager has maintained faith in several players as undisputed starters, but an equal number have seen out the entire ninety minutes on the bench consistently.

As the club look to offload players as part of the summer transfer plans, it is the latter group who are unsurprisingly targeted. Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio find themselves on the market this summer.

According to reports from MARCA, Los Blancos are listening to offers for the Spanish duo.

After signing Aurelien Tchouameni, Ceballos is seen as a surplus in the current setup, and Madrid could use the funds from his transfer to reinforce other departments.

Meanwhile, while Asensio was certainly in Ancelotti’s plans last season, an agreement over a renewal seems a distant possibility.

Asensio had constant opportunities to prove his worth in the last season but failed to grab his chances. The club were said to be willing to renew his deal but refuse to offer him a pay-raise with the new deal.

Meanwhile, Ceballos played just 11 league games for his club last season. In his 275 minutes of action, he failed to make any goal contributions.

The club favour a departure for the midfielder but are under no pressure to sell. Needless to say, no hasty decision will be taken.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
