Real Madrid’s quest for the La Liga title may have concluded, but the players are availing the remaining games as an opportunity to win over coach Carlo Ancelotti and earn consistent game time.

Arda Guler has particularly made the most of the time on his pitch, with the Turkish sensation’s patience finally bearing fruit.

Indeed, Guler has notched two goals in his last two games and his overall play has looked immensely sharp.

Due to his string of strong performances, the youngster is also set to start Los Blancos’ last two games in La Liga.

The Turkish footballer discussed all the latest developments at Real Madrid during an interview on Kafa Sports (h/t MARCA).

Playing with the best

When asked to comment on his experience of playing alongside stars like Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Jude Bellingham as well as the intensity of the friendly games held at the Valdedebas, Guler replied:

“The players want to win the Champions League, but I can say that they have the same idea of winning the match that day. This is something I’ve seen for the first time here.”

The 19-year-old gem adds that the discipline of his compatriots has rubbed off on him and enables him to keep growing.

“They all go to training with concentration and discipline, this is something that I have learned here and that helps me improve myself even more every day. They have an incredible character, they never accept defeat, they are very ambitious,” he said.

Moreover, Guler claimed that acclimating to this level at such a tender age is shaping him into a more resilient individual.

“They are very motivated, every day they demand more from themselves than from their peers and I feel happy to be getting used to this pressure at this age,” he professed.

Guler’s fitness transformation

Despite suffering from injuries for a large portion of the season, Guler has not used that as an excuse to not work out in the gym.

Reports have argued that the club has been amazed by his fitness transformation, with Guler clearly putting in the hours off the field.

In fact, Guler has continued to concentrate on his physique during the three days off that Ancelotti granted him.

The midfielder posted his most recent gym session on social media, with the caption, “No days off.”

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
