Over the past few weeks, there have been a lot of speculations and rumours surrounding the future of Real Madrid whizkid Arda Guler.

After all, the 19-year-old wonderkid has played just 98 minutes since joining the club in the summer, although it must be noted that he missed the entire first half of the season due to three injuries.

It has given way to speculations that Guler could be on his way out on loan in the summer in order to play regularly and continue his development.

No plans for Guler to leave

Now, though, AS reports that there are no plans for Arda Guler to leave Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old has indeed struggled to get minutes under Carlo Ancelotti and has not played in over a month, since a cameo off the bench against Osasuna.

Given the situation, there is no shortage of interest in the youngster either, with several clubs from Spain and outside willing to take him on loan.

However, Guler has not asked to leave the club nor are there any plans for him to leave at this stage. Instead, the youngster would remain at Real Madrid and fight for his place in the team.

Guler could start vs Real Sociedad

In fact, the report from AS states that Guler could be set to make his first La Liga start for Real Madrid when they face Real Sociedad this week.

With the La Liga title almost in the bag and the Bayern Munich encounter next week, Ancelotti is expected to make changes to his team for Friday’s game against Sociedad.

As such, Guler could be one of the beneficiaries with a start on the horizon for the Turkish international.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
