The hype around Arda Guler after his arrival at Real Madrid was special.

The Turkish star was said to be stunning the management with his quality in training and was said to have a good chance of starting under Carlo Ancelotti.

Last week, however, Real Madrid confirmed that their latest recruit had suffered an injury to the internal meniscus of his right knee and after much deliberation, Los Blancos decided it was best for him to continue his recovery in Spain.

Guler is now back in Madrid to continue his recovery, and AS provides an update on his condition. According to the Spanish outlet, the young phenom will face around two months out of action.

A long wait for his debut

Guler had been catching the eye in training before the flight to the USA, but did not train much once Real Madrid landed there due to discomfort in his leg.

The 18-year-old prodigy missed the matches against AC Milan and Manchester United before the club decided to send him back to Spain.

As a result, he also did not feature against Barcelona and will not be playing against Juventus.

Furthermore, Guler will be unable to feature in the first part of the league season.

He is expected to miss crucial games including those against Athletic Club, Celta Vigo, Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid, and could return in time to face Girona in the first week of October.

All eyes on Bellingham

Carlo Ancelotti saw Guler as an option to play in a similar niche as Jude Bellingham – the attacking midfield.

With the Turkish star ruled out for a long time, the former Borussia Dortmund player can look to capitalise on the situation and engrave his name in the manager’s starting lineup.

He has made a very strong impression in his three pres-eason games so far and even scored a stunning goal against Manchester United last week.

For Guler, the wait till October will be long. One hopes that he remains mentally strong and comes back with renewed motivation once he is fully fit again.
