Real Madrid tracking Tottenham, Man City target for three seasons, eyeing summer move

Pedro Porro is one of the hottest names in the transfer market. The Sporting CP defender is one of the few promising right-backs available on the market, and it is not surprising that Real Madrid have their eyes on him too.

The European Champions boast of one of the world’s finest squads, but it is glaringly obvious that they lack quality in the full-back positions.

Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are the only players Carlo Ancelotti trusts on the right of defence. Both Spanish internationals are now on the wrong side of thirty, and a fresh pair of legs is becoming a big necessity.

According to reports from AS, Florentino Perez & co. have been following Porro’s development for a long time now. The observation that began three seasons ago has brought in good reports and chief scout Juni Calafat has valued his exponential growth very positively.

The Spaniard has a release clause of €45 million, and Real Madrid are interested in signing him come June. However, there are contenders in the market willing to pursue him in the ongoing winter transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte loves Porro’s profile and is pushing for his signing. However, the English side are far from reaching the economic terms demanded by Sporting.

More importantly, Manchester City reserve a purchase clause on their former right-back as included in the contract during his sale to Sporting CP. They can either sign him in January for a fee of just €17 million or in June for an additional €5.5 million.

Real Madrid’s pursuit of Porro thus depends on the two Premier League side’s decisions this month. If the player remains in Portugal come June, the Merengues could look to swoop in for his signing.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
