Real Madrid are potentially looking at one of the most important summer transfer windows in recent years. The club have already bagged the services of Jude Bellingham while losing out on Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio.

They have been linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe, who might be offloaded by Paris Saint-Germain as they look to avoid seeing the forward leave on a free transfer. Real Madrid, though, appear more focused on the pursuit of Arda Guler at the moment.

This has been reported by MARCA, which suggests the Turkish sensation could make a decision on his future this week. Everything indicates he will leave Fenerbahce, with Real Madrid emerging as one of the potential destinations.

Guler has been on Madrid’s wishlist for a long time and now is the occasion for them to make a move. The youngster wants to take the next step in his career and is available for just €17.5 million, which is a reasonable fee for any European club.

Guler, though, has been holding out for lucrative wages, which is where Real Madrid take the cake. The Spanish giants’ are offering terms closer to the youngster’s demands, which could give them a major advantage in the pursuit.

It appears Guler could be the surprise package at Real Madrid this season. The club’s coaching staff is sure of the youngster’s abilities. Although they are not sure how the player would fit into the team, his versatility could be of real help.

Guler could indeed provide some much-needed backup in the right wing and even in the attacking midfield position. With 13 goal involvements, the youngster has already proven himself at the professional level and could be a handy alternative for someone like Brahim Diaz next season.

However, the Merengues are also considering the possibility of signing Guler and loaning him back to Fenerbahce for a season, which does not appeal to the player. So, it remains to be seen how Real Madrid navigate these waters and progress in their pursuit of the 18-year-old.
