Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.

Real Madrid priority defensive target demanding €20 million in wages, club waiting to send first offer

Real Madrid top priority this summer window will be to nail down a move for Kylian Mbappe, who is set to leave PSG at the end of the season once his contract clocks up.

The Frenchman has been on their radar for the better part of the last decade at this point, but a move never went through for several reasons. This time, though, it is near completion, and seems to be the first one they will announce.

Once done, Madrid will look to negotiate with Bayern Munich as they are targeting a move for Alphonso Davies. The Canadian’s contract expires in the summer of 2025, and at this point, the Bavarians are quite pessimistic about his continuity.

In fact, a report earlier today from The Athletic claimed that Madrid have already reached a full verbal agreement with Davies. It was never going to be a problem for the Spanish giants, anyway, with the player keen to move.

However, it seems the reason why his contract extension stalled at Bayern and opened up this avenue has been released, with a report from BILD claiming that Davies demanded €20 million as his salary.

Bayern, with a very strict wage cap, were never happy to pay this much money, with even Harry Kane earning just over €20 million.

Madrid, on the other hand, seem to be happy to comply with Davies’ demands. Toni Kroos is their top-earner right now, reportedly, pocketing nearly €22 million in gross wages, with David Alaba, Luka Modric, and Vinicius Jr all on pretty much the €20 million mark.

Right now, Madrid are waiting on a green light from Bayern so they can send their first official bid for the player, which is expected to be in the region of €30-40 million.

They are not ready to pay anything more than €50 million for his services, especially with only one year remaining on his contract.
