According to a report from Planeta Real Madrid, Arda Guler has put forward a condition to go out on loan that he would only sign for a team that plays in the UEFA Champions League.

It goes without saying that Guler’s debut season at Real Madrid has been challenging. The young Turk has faced three injuries, making it a difficult period for him. 

His debut and only start of the season took place on January 6, which came in a low gravity away match against Arandina and even then, he could not finish the full 90 minutes.

Despite his struggles, Real Madrid rejected several offers for Guler during the last winter transfer window. 

This is because Florentino Perez and the club’s management were firm in their decision to keep him at the club for the entire season. However, the summer could bring different circumstances.

Will Guler leave Real Madrid?

Recent reports suggest that Guler has requested a transfer, and that manager Carlo Ancelotti supports the idea of a loan move. However, the club’s final decision on this matter is still pending.

It is said that Real Madrid and the player have set a key condition for him to go out on loan next season: he must join a team competing in the Champions League. 

Everybody wants him to play at a high level to insure that upon returning, he would be ready to don the white jersey. As of today, though, it remains to be seen if offers from Champions League clubs will come in for Guler. 

Are there any offers for Guler?

There are indeed!

As reported before, Bayer Leverkusen could be a potential option, as the team is currently thriving under the management of Xabi Alonso, who could help Guler reach his full potential. 

Additionally, there is a possibility that both Guler and Alonso could join Real Madrid in 2026. On the other hand, fellow La Liga teams like Sevilla and Real Sociedad have expressed interest.

For now, everything remains uncertain, and Real Madrid are considering offers for Güler.

PSG president wanted Real Madrid to bear Mbappe’s €80 million loyalty bonus

It is only a matter of days before Kylian Mbappe is officially confirmed as a Real Madrid player.

The French superstar announced his departure from PSG as a free agent recently and even though nothing is official yet, everything points to him arriving at the Spanish capital club.

An official announcement and presentation are expected to take place sometime before the UEFA Euro 2024 starts.

While the move is all but done, it appears that PSG, in particular president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, are left with a bitter taste over Mbappe’s imminent exit.

Al-Khelaifi wanted Real Madrid to pay €80 million

As has already been reported, Al-Khelaifi tried to convince Mbappe to snub Real Madrid by presenting various arguments which had no effect.

Now, French publication L’Equipe has brought forth a report which claims that the PSG president simply cannot accept the fact that Mbappe is joining Real Madrid for free.

And things are now happening behind the scenes which suggest that the Frenchman’s departure will be far from smooth and amicable.

Indeed, as per the report, PSG have not paid Mbappe his salary for the month of April as well as an additional bonus he was due.

This is because of the €80 million loyalty bonus payment that the club had made to the France captain back in February, even though he had waived it off after deciding not to renew his contract.

In August 2023, after he was frozen out of the team for refusing to extend his contract, Mbapp agreed to give up his loyalty bonus so that PSG do not suffer a huge financial hit as a result of his leaving as a free agent this summer.

However, Al Khelaifi made a U-turn and granted Mbappe the loyalty bonus in February this year, with the caveat that Real Madrid cover the €80 million as compensation for the 25-year-old leaving for free.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, however, refused that demand as he deemed that it was completely out of the question, as the La Liga champions are not obligated to pay for a player who will be out of contract in a few weeks.

A complete breakdown

Things have not been well between Mbappe and Al-Khelaifi ever since the player informed him of his decision to leave PSG.

The report suggests that the pair are no longer on speaking terms and that lawyers are involved in trying to resolve the matter of the unpaid dues.

PSG are looking for written confirmation that their all-time top scorer will waive the €80 million, which he had agreed to in the past, only for the club to make the payment.

As for Mbappe, he wants the money he is owed as part of his salary which was not paid in April.

Al-Khelaifi has not had the best relation with Perez either and this development further escalates the situation.
