Over the past couple of days, there has been a lot of chatter surrounding Fenerbahce and Turkey wonderkid Arda Guler and the potential interest he is generating from Real Madrid, among other top clubs.

The 18-year-old attacking midfielder enjoyed a solid 2022/23 campaign, finishing with six goals and seven assists from 35 matches across all competitions. Given the potential he has shown, Guler is being tipped as the next big thing in European football.

As has become the norm, Real Madrid have shown an interest in signing one of the most promising young talents on show currently.

In fact, Los Blancos also have drawn up a plan for the versatile attacking midfielder, who has a €17.5 million release clause in his contract.

Indeed, according to journalist Volkan Demir, Real Madrid wish to sign Guler from Fenerbahce right away this summer but intend to loan him back to the Turkish giants so that he can play regularly and continue his development.

However, the 18-year-old is not on board with the plan. Guler, who has four caps for the Turkish national team, dreams of playing for Real Madrid, but wants to join the club right away and not go out on loan after signing for the Merengues.

The Spanish capital giants, though, will work to convince the Turkish wonderkid of their plan and accept the proposal of going back on loan to Fenerbahce after signing for them.

Real Madrid have been focusing on recruiting the best young talent across the globe in recent years. Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, Endrick and Jude Bellingham have all been brought in by Los Blancos and they wish to add Guler to the list as well.

But, a move will now depend on whether the 18-year-old is willing to accept the idea of going on loan after signing for Real Madrid. Guler also has other suitors, including the likes of Barcelona and AC Milan. And only time will tell where he ends up.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
