The stage is set for Arda Guler to join Real Madrid. Despite trailing Barcelona in the race to acquire his services not so long ago, the Merengues‘ latest proposal has gone a long way in turning the tables and the writing now appears to be on the wall.

The reliable Mario Cortegana goes as far as to confirm that the deal is done, with Guler expected to link with Carlo Ancelotti at the earliest. He is even expected to be a part of Real Madrid’s upcoming pre-season tour to the United States.

As opposed to reports earlier this month that suggested his incorporation in the Castilla side, Los Blancos are offering the prodigy a first-team spot for the 2023/24 campaign. In fact, it is this assurance that appears to have triggered the player’s change in heart.

Fabrizio Romano adds that Real Madrid will pay €20 million plus add-ons for the youngster’s services, slightly more than his release clause of €17.5 million. He adds that the negotiations are in the final stages with the club confident of getting it done in a day or two.

Moreover, that proposal includes a 20% share of any future sale of the player to his current employers, Fenerbahce.

Guler has been making headlines over the past years for his unreal influence in the middle of the park both for club and country. His control of the ball is impeccable, and it is safe to say that Real Madrid have one of football’s biggest gems in their ranks.

However, given the competition for places in the team, it will be interesting to see manager Carlo Ancelotti manages to fit Guler into the scheme of things at the Santiago Bernabeu.

What appears to be clear is that Real Madrid seem to have pulled off a successful hijack and are now all set to beat Barcelona to the 18-year-old whizkid’s signing.

    Good move. A very brilliant replacement for Asensio.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
