After enduring the somber shadows of injury, Arda Guler has completed his recovery as the Turkish sensation’s debut for Real Madrid is finally in sight.

It has not been an easy start to life in Spain for the youngster. With injuries constantly interrupting his progress, Guler has yet to relish playing under the lights of the Santiago Bernabeu.

But his dream of representing the Royal White jersey is close to completion, and Real Madrid aims to make it a reality in the club’s next encounter against Mallorca.

Return in sight

As per MARCA, Arda Guler will feature against Mallorca in the final few minutes of the game, which will be the Merengues‘ first game of 2024.

The clash will be hosted on home soil and thus Real Madrid want to take the opportunity of the occasion by showcasing the player to the fans and helping him regain match rhythm.

After being sidelined for months on end, Madrid are being extra cautious with Guler’s recuperation and wants him to gradually put miles on his legs.

As such, even though it could seem like the right time to offer him more minutes in the Copa del Rey, the player would take a break, sticking to the exacting schedule that Los Blancos have laid out for him.

Playing in a cup match this early in the competition is seen as a risk not worth taking. He has been fully limited to the sidelines since his first meniscal rupture, which required surgery, and the subsequent blows to his muscles.

These successive ailments have reportedly also deteriorated his fitness considerably, which is compelling Real Madrid to ease him back in steadily.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid have full faith in the player and does not intend to part ways on a temporary loan spell anytime soon.

Real Madrid’s most crucial endeavour of the season edges closer as they gear up to take Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final.

Emotions are sure to be running high not only because of the monumental occasion; but also because a certain Toni Kroos will be playing his final game in the royal white jersey.

The German will be parting ways after enjoying 10 trophy-filled seasons and will aim to add another to his illustrious cabinet before he travels to Germany for the Euros in what will officially be his last rodeo in professional football.

Now, speaking in the build-up to the grand showdown with Borussia, Kroos has given his two cents on the team’s preparation and the morale inside the locker room.

On the upcoming Champions League final

Kroos acknowledged it felt incredible to play his sixth final for the Merengues, but claimed none of this success would have been possible without the efforts of a cohesive team.

“My sixth final? It’s a beautiful thing. I was lucky to play for a team that was able to achieve these successes.

“I am part of this, but I do not like to be alone, there is always the team. Without a team, it is impossible to do this,” Kroos remarked during an interview with RMTV.

Additionally, the German midfielder argued that Real Madrid were in high spirits today and they have the potential to surprise people.

“Today I saw everyone enjoying and looking forward to. The final is on Saturday. There is a competitor that may surprise some people.”

Furthermore, Kroos is eager to close his Real Madrid career on a high and claims this will be his last effort before riding off into the sunset.

“This will be my last effort for Real Madrid. Hala Madrid,” he exclaimed.

On his farewell game

Kroos played his final game at the Santiago Bernabeu against Real Betis recently, and his emotional substitution in the 86th minute marked a poignant farewell.

As Kroos came off the pitch, he confessed that seeing his daughter cry was a difficult pill to swallow and he will carry these special moments till the very end.

“I tried not to cry on Saturday but when I saw my daughter cry it changed. It was very difficult for me. I will never forget these moments. I will remember forever, my children and my wife too,” he said.

The 34-year-old also mentioned that whenever he feels like experiencing a tear-jerker, he will take a trip down memory lane by looking at the farewell pictures.

“Saturday was the night of a lifetime. If one day at home I want to cry, I will look at the farewell pictures.”
