Arda Guler’s national teammate Yusuf Yazıcı has said that the step the midfielder has taken is quite difficult for someone his age and yet, he is handling the situation very well.

Guler’s debut campaign at Real Madrid has been marred by injuries and even when fit, he was limited to just 12 appearances across all competitions. Despite that, though, he managed to score six goals in the league.

In an interview with AS, Yazıcı, an attacking midfielder for Lille and Turkey, couldn’t stop praising Guler’s quality, even saying that his vision on the field, and his ability to pass and shoot are first-class.

When asked what advice he would want to give to the Real Madrid midfielder, he said, “Leaving home at a young age and adapting to another country and another culture is really difficult. 

“I think Guler is handling it in the best way and is doing a very good job. He will have to face difficulties, but he is able to overcome them with his talent and personality.”

Guler’s technical prowess is next to none

Yazıcı was asked where exactly can Guler be more decisive mostly because many consider him the “new Modric”, but others think he should play closer to the goal.

To this, he said, “He is a very high-level talent. His vision on the field and his ability to pass and shoot are first-class. In short, a very complete player.

“Despite suffering an unfortunate injury early on, he showed his quality. He broke the record for a player by scoring six goals in less time with Real Madrid. 

“Arda is very nice and positive. He can contribute in many positions, and let me say this: whether he plays near the goal or far away, he will be in the right place at the right time to score and assist.”

Yazıcı is not surprised by Guler’s impact

Yazıcı also said that Guler is an extremely special talent and with time, he will improve even more and reach the pinnacle of the sport. Asked if he is surprised by Guler’s performance, he said,

“Of course not. He is a special talent, a great footballer and, above all, a very good person. The stage he has reached does not surprise me at all. 

“With time he will improve and reach higher levels of football. We talked a lot during this season. He is a curious person who is always ready to learn.”

Yazıcı added, “Guler is a Real Madrid player and a Champions League champion. In a very short time, he showed what he can do. He will be one of the most important players in the coming years.”

Meanwhile, Yazıcı was also asked about Real Madrid’s latest recruit Kylian Mbappe since he has shared the field against the Frenchman in Ligue 1. According to Yazıcı, Mbapee will have a lot of success in Spain.

“A player like him can play comfortably in anyone. He has all the requirements of modern football. He will have a lot of success at Real Madrid,” he said.

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
