It has been a difficult debut season for Arda Guler at Real Madrid. The 19-year-old wonderkid has found minutes hard to come by even after putting his injury woes behind him.

Last evening’s game against RCD Mallorca might have been an ideal opportunity for Carlo Ancelotti to give Guler some game-time, but it was not to be as the manager did not use the Turkish prodigy at all on the night.

Arda Guler informs Real Madrid he wants to leave

Now, journalist Ramon Alvarez reports that Arda Guler has informed Real Madrid that he wants to leave the club in the summer transfer window.

The report further adds that manager Ancelotti would be open to the idea of a loan exit for the 19-year-old prospect and the final decision will now be up to the club.

After missing the entire first half of the season due to three back-to-back injury problems, Guler has played just seven games totalling up to 98 minutes in all competitions, contributing with one goal in the process.

While competition for places is indeed intense at Real Madrid, games like the one against Mallorca on Saturday are ones where Ancelotti can turn to the youngster but has time and again opted not to.

So, it is understandable that Guler is not entirely happy with his situation and is seeking an exit, although it is unclear if he wants to leave on loan or permanently.

The manager, for his part, would be willing to sanction a loan departure for the 19-year-old talent in the summer.

There is no shortage of interest in Guler either with clubs from within Spain and outside open to signing him on loan. It is now up to Real Madrid to decide which way they proceed.

    Madrid is at a disadvantage against Manchester City because of Ancelotti reluctance to give Les known talented young players the opportunity to play. Guler has every right to demand to leave for the summer. Brahim Diaz is in a similar but slightly better situation. Ancelotti only uses known or old experienced players rather than talented young players. Great examples are Nacho and Joselu. All the other teams doing well are using all their young talents; for example, Manchester City, Arsenal and Barcelona. Meanwhile while Madrid uses the same predictable lineup and strategy.

    Yeah, Ancelotti himself needs to be replaced now with a younger and more forward-looking coach. He has done his part at Madrid. The club needs a more dynamic and more strategic-thinking coach who knows how to nurture and utlize younger and more energetic players. Otherwise, Madrid will never be able to overcome a very energetic and well coached team like Man City. Yes, if I were the young Turkish player, Guler, I will opt for a loan transfer and return to Madrid only after Ancelotti has left.

    Young energetic players need to be given enough time to show their talent. Ergo, keep them in the team and give them more time instead of relying on the old guards most of the time.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
