Arda Guler was one of the most sought-after players in the previous summer transfer window, but after completing his desired move to Real Madrid, he has not yet had the opportunity to savor wearing the iconic Royal White jersey for the first time.

Indeed, injuries continue to elude him from making his long-awaited debut in the Spanish Capital.

However, the club and the player know that slow and steady wins the race. Instead of rushing his return, careful consideration is being taken in the recovery process.

Real Madrid aim for Guler’s full recovery

As per Mundo Deportivo (h/t RM4Arab) Real Madrid are keen for Arda Guler to fully recover and be fit to play when Carlo Ancelotti asks him to do so.

Guler has been injured since the pre-season US tour, having picked up two additional injuries that ruled him out of action for the first half of the season.

He most recently suffered from a tear in his hamstring, which initially sidelined him for around one month. Expectations were that he would be able to play the final games of the year against Villarreal and Alaves, but that did not turn out to be the case.

And while his return edges closer, the Merengues are treading lightly with the Turkish sensation, as the player will only be called up when Carlo Ancelotti sees fit.

Furthermore, the report argues that Guler’s recent string of ailments has caused a major deterioration in his physical fitness, which requires extra caution and more time allotted to his recovery period.

However, Real Madrid will soon have Vinicius Jr. and Eduardo Camavinga at their disposal next month as they are working hard to make it in time before the Spanish Super Cup commences.

    I hope Guler doesn’t turn out to be another Eden Hazard type issue for Los Blancos

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
