When Real Madrid beat Barcelona to the signing of Arda Guler from Fenerbahce in the summer window, there was a lot of excitement surrounding the 18-year-old’s arrival.

And, the hype around the Turkish wonderkid continued to build as reports emerged of his eye-catching displays in pre-season training, building up the anticipation for his debut.

But a knee injury early in the pre-season tour of the US meant that Guler is yet to take the field for Real Madrid in any game, official or unofficial.

The Turkish attacking midfielder underwent surgery in August to treat his injury and initial reports suggested that he could be out until the international break in October.

Guler hoping to return sooner

However, a fresh update from Mundo Deportivo claims that Guler is making good progress in his recovery and is aiming to be back by the end of this month.

Guler has been working hard on his recovery at the club’s Valdebebas training facilities in the hope of returning to action before the end of September.

The 18-year-old has missed each of Real Madrid’s four La Liga games so far this season and will be unavailable for the next match against Real Sociedad, right after the international break.

Beyond that, the young attacking prodigy will also miss the UEFA Champions League group stage opener against Union Berlin.

The matches against Atletico Madrid and Las Palmas in the last week of September could be touch and go, although it would not come as a surprise to see Real Madrid err on the side of caution and delay his return to avoid any further risks.

Real Madrid staff blown away by Guler

While fans continue to wait to see Guler in the Royal White shirt, the coaching staff at the club got glimpses of his natural talent and ability in training sessions prior to his injury.

And, if reports are to be believed, the Real Madrid staff has been left shocked by the quality that the 18-year-old possesses.

Naturally, there is a lot of excitement around the teenage prodigy and fans will be hoping to see him out on the pitch at the earliest possible.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
