The past 24 hours have been vital in Arda Guler’s situation. Real Madrid appear to have beaten Barcelona to the Turkish prodigy’s signing, and his desire to move this summer has been key in the same.

According to reports from El Larguero, Guler has signed a deal with Real Madrid until the summer of 2029. The six-year deal appears to be closed and an announcement is imminent.

Fabrizio Romano has also given his signature ‘here we go’ to the phenom’s move to Real Madrid. The Italian journalist reports that the deal is close to being completed between Los Blancos and Fenerbahce with only the final documents being checked. 

The deal will include a fee of €20 million and add-ons based on his performance. Further, Fenerbahce will receive 20% of any future sale of the player. A medical exam has already been scheduled.

Guler will be the latest addition to the team’s high-quality midfield that boasts names like Jude Bellingham, Federico Valverde, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga.

At just 18 years of age, he is seen as one of the leading members of the midfield core for at least the next decade.

The Fenerbahce star has primarily operated as an attacking midfielder in his short career so far. With the direct competition at Real Madrid cruel, however, it remains to be seen if Carlo Ancelotti finds an alternative approach to incorporate Güler. A role on the right flank, on that front, cannot be ruled out.

In 20 Super Lig appearances for his team last season, the midfielder scored four goals and provided three assists. Further, he averaged a stunning two key passes and two dribbles completed per game and created seven big chances in that duration.

Real Madrid rising star suffered against Atletico due to veteran forward’s absence, says Simeone

Real Madrid’s 3-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid was not the first time were in trouble this season. In fact, the Merengues have gone behind early in almost every league game so far.

However, the difference on Sunday night was that they never really mounted a comeback. More importantly, Jude Bellingham did not come good, for the first time.

Simeone unravels the mystery

A jubilant Diego Simeone spoke to the media after his side downed Real Madrid by three goals to one and spoke about a plethora of topics. 

Interestingly, he commented specifically on why Bellingham did not have an impact at Civitas Metropolitano, citing the absence of Joselu as a key factor.

“No, the spaces were reduced and I think that Joselu’s lack of presence left him with fewer chances to get there, when he takes advantage of Joselu’s aerial play. We controlled him better, he’s extraordinary,” he said, as quoted by AS.

He even called out the refereeing on the night and insisted that the Real Madrid star-boy should have seen red for his late tackle on Angel Correa, saying:

“It looked like a sending-off to me live, it was a hard leg up, with Angelito hitting the ball.”

Ironically, he defended his defender Jose Maria Gimenez for an equally threatening tackle on the night.

“A bad foul, it’s a yellow card because it goes sideways. Bellingham goes from the front and I think it’s a bit more,” he stated paradoxically.

No time to lament

The game at Civitas Metropolitano may not have gone Real Madrid’s way. Yet, it is good for the Merengues to taste defeat early and see the gaping holes in their dynamic.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted in his press conference that he bore the lion’s share of the fault for Sunday’s loss and that he would have done things differently if given the chance.

“Maybe I could have done it better. It’s pretty clear. When the team doesn’t do what it has to do, it’s my responsibility,” he stated.

Nevertheless, Los Blancos have a hectic schedule ahead with two games in the next five days and a UCL fixture against Napoli next week. With Vinicius Jr back, one hopes they find their mojo once again.
