The race for Arda Guler has quickly boiled down to just two clubs. Barcelona and Real Madrid are in a direct tussle to sign the Turkish international, especially given that he prioritises a move to La Liga.

Both sides have been in constant conversation with Guler’s camp and he remains undecided on his next destination. However, it is Barcelona who appear to have taken a significant step forward in negotiations.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana via Directo Gol, Guler will not remain at Fenerbahce for another season. Moreover, the reliable journalist adds that his move to Barcelona is far from granted. After all, the prodigy really likes Real Madrid’s project.

The Merengues are reportedly willing to put in whatever it takes to sign Guler from Fenerbahce this summer, but the only downside is the direct competition he would face at the club. 

An attacking midfielder by trade, the youngster would find himself brushing shoulders with not only Jude Bellingham and Luka Modric but also Dani Ceballos, Eduardo Camavinga, and Brahim Diaz. The other option would be to play for the Castilla, but Guler will likely not take the step down.

From an economic standpoint, Real Madrid are willing to meet his release clause over three instalments. Further, their proposal offers Fenerbahce 20% of any future sale of the youngster.

The 18-year-old is considered one of football’s brightest young talents for his impeccable control of the ball and ability to find the decisive pass under pressure. With his best years still far ahead of him, the sky is the limit for Guler.

The youngster made 20 Super Lig appearances for Fenerbahce last season, scoring four goals and providing three assists. He has also made his debut for the Turkish National Team and even found the back of the net in their recent game against Wales.

Real Madrid will need to act fast if they wish to beat Barcelona to his signing as the Catalans appear to be in pole position in the race.

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.
