Despite battling injuries throughout the season, 19-year-old Arda Güler has emerged as a late-season phenomenon for Real Madrid.

The Turkish sensation has starred in Los Blancos‘ recent set of league matches, with his most recent display coming in the 4-4 draw with Villarreal.

Guler’s late-season form has left the Real Madrid technical staff in awe, particularly due to his decision-making in the final third.

Guler’s precision in front of goal

However, apart from his decision-making, another standout factor behind Guler’s recent performances has been his precision in front of goal.

Indeed, Guler has scored six goals this season in just six shots on target. This amounts to an accuracy of 100%. This incredible efficiency highlights his predatory prowess, which has taken the Real Madrid technical staff by storm.

“We are talking about a boy who has more goals than minutes played and that can only be a gift,” Ancelotti had proclaimed after his first start in Anoeta.

Since then, the Turkish sensation has only grown in confidence, boasting a goals-per-minute ratio that is the envy of even the most seasoned strikers.

He averages a goal every 62 minutes, translating to an almost unthinkable one-and-a-half goals per game.

Another key data point that highlights Guler’s efficiency in front of goal is the player’s xG tally of 1.3. Yet, the attacker has netted six goals.

In simpler terms, he’s converting at a rate nearly five times better than what the data suggests.

Amused at his performance against Villarreal, Ancelotti showered praise on Guler, adding, “He is very effective, he scores a lot with little space, he has a special talent.”

It is apparent that Guler is indeed flourishing under the leadership of Ancelotti. Real Madrid fans will hope that the trend continues going into the new season, where the Turkish international will have the opportunity to feed two new talented forwards in Kylian Mbappe and Endrick.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
