The end of a manager’s tenure usually comes after an extended run of poor form by the team. Carlo Ancelotti is not in the same boat, though.

The Italian manager has guided his team nine points clear of second-placed Sevilla in the league. Moreover, Los Blancos also find themselves in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after a stunning remontada against PSG.

Yet, the Madrid outfit are looking to part ways with their coach at the end of the season. The board are said to be unhappy with the style of play and edgy wins in recent months.

Moreover, the recent humiliation at El Clasico is another prime example of Ancelotti’s tactics going wrong.

According to reports from Daily Mail, Mauricio Pochettino is one of the names on the list for next season. The PSG coach has had a dismal time in France and is almost guaranteed to leave the club in June.

Real Madrid’s biggest rival for the appointment of Pochettino is Manchester United. The Red Devils see the Argentine as the architect for their rebuild and are not expected to hold back come June.

The 50-year-old manager has overseen 75 games for PSG so far, winning 50 and losing on 15 occasions. The French club average 2.13 points per game under his command, though the same figure for his overall managerial career is a mere 1.67.

Kylian Mbappe is said to share a strong bond with the Argentine. Needless to say, their experience working together will be a key factor for Real Madrid next season.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
