Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb has reported that since Real Madrid are finding it hard to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, they have set their sights on Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic.

Vlahovic, 23, has arguably been one of the most talked about forwards in the ongoing transfer window. It has been reported that the Serbian international, who has a valid contract with Juventus until 2026, was discussed during Juventus director Cristiano Giuntoli’s meeting with Chelsea.

The 51-year-old eventually admitted that in order to balance the financial books, Juventus will, indeed, listen to offers for the 23-year-old just one and a half years after signing him from Fiorentina.

“Vlahovic? It’s not a secret that we have to clarify our balance/accounts, so we have to consider huge proposals. It’s important to clarify that we trust Dusan and he’s part of our project,” Giuntoli was quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

As it turns out, however, Chelsea have no interest in signing Vlahovic in the first place, and at present, the only club actively pursuing him is Paris Saint-Germain.

A few delegates of the Ligue 1 side have already met with Juventus and the French champions have reportedly asked for a few days to internally discuss this operation.

And, it now appears that Real Madrid too have entered the picture with reports suggesting that the Merengues had made an enquiry for Vlahovic recently.

Now, although Juventus are willing to sell the Serbian, only a fee of around €80 million can do the trick.

TuttoMercatoWeb adds to the report that Juventus and Real Madrid hope to meet and discuss the transfer in the first week of August when the two teams face each other in the pre-season friendly.

If there is indeed serious interest from Real Madrid’s side, they would have to pay a hefty amount for the 23-year-old, who scored just 10 league goals last season.

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
