With Castilla missing out on promotion, Real Madrid are set to lose some of the key members of the team as they look to continue their development elsewhere, having reached the end of the cycle within Raul Gonzalez’s side.

Rafa Marin is close to signing for Real Betis on loan while Sergio Arribas is also attracting plenty of interest from within Spain and outside.

Now, a fresh report from Mario Cortegana of The Athletic has provided an update on the future of another pillar of Raul’s Castilla outfit, Carlos Dotor.

The 22-year-old midfielder, who also happens to be the captain of the Castilla outfit, will also follow Marin and Arribas through the exit doors this summer even though he still has two years left on his contract.

As such, Real Madrid are seeking a transfer fee of €4 million for Dotor, albeit only for 50% of his rights as the club intend to retain some control over the midfielder’s future.

A stalwart for Castilla in the past couple of seasons, Dotor has made 88 appearances, scoring 25 goals and setting up four more.

Naturally, Los Blancos want to have the possibility of bringing him back in the future if his development continues on an upward trend like they did with Fran Garcia this summer.

So, the Spanish capital club are asking for €4 million for 50% of his rights. However, the possibility of a loan deal, with or without a purchase option, is also not ruled out.

Celta Vigo are interested in securing Dotor’s services this summer and are reportedly the best-placed club to sign him up.

With an exit almost certain, it only remains to be seen as to the nature of the deal which Real Madrid and Celta Vigo agree for Dotor.

Los Blancos are also working on a similar arrangement for Arribas, with the club seeking €10 million for 50% rights of the youngster.

Real Madrid teenage talent faces uncertain future following increase in competition

Journalist Jordi Gil has reported through SPORT that Arda Guler’s situation at Real Madrid is becoming increasingly difficult. 

This is because Guler is unhappy with the lack of playing time he experienced last season and is determined not to spend another season on the bench.

During the recently concluded Euro 2024, Guler demonstrated his immense talent to the world. This competition gave him the platform to showcase his abilities, which had largely remained unseen during the season at Real Madrid. 

He only featured in a few games towards the end of the season, which were inconsequential as Real Madrid had already secured the league title.

Guler has injuries to blame

Guler’s troubles began early last season when he suffered an injury during the American tour. This setback, combined with the challenge of adapting to a new language and style of football, made it difficult for him to find his footing. 

Although Carlo Ancelotti tried to support him mentally, he did not provide Guler with enough opportunities to play.

The youngest is now determined not to let history repeat itself. He is willing to force a move, possibly through a loan, if he does not get more playing time, even though Real Madrid want him in the first team

This situation could escalate if Guler continues to see himself as the last option in the squad. Milan and Bayer Leverkusen have already expressed interest in him.

Guler is way down the pecking order

Currently, Guler is behind several high-profile players in the pecking order. Stars like Kylian Mbappe, Vinicius Jr, and Rodrygo are ahead of him. 

Additionally, Brahim Diaz has the edge, and in midfield, Guler faces competition from Jude Bellingham. Breaking into the starting lineup seems like an almost impossible task at the moment, even though he proved his worth at the Euros.

Meanwhile, it is said that Florentino Perez has great faith in him. Perez wants to see Guler succeed at Real Madrid, but the challenge now lies with Ancelotti in managing the team. 

Benching established stars to give playing time to a young prospect like Guler could create tension in the dressing room.

Real Madrid have a surplus of attacking options. The arrival of Mbappe has brought renewed hope to Real Madrid fans, but the significant investment in the French star might disrupt the harmony within the squad that Ancelotti has worked hard to maintain.
