Real Madrid played out an entertaining 4-4 draw away at Villarreal on Sunday night in their penultimate La Liga fixture of the season.

Alexander Sorloth made the headlines for scoring all four goals for the Yellow Submarine while it was Arda Guler who shone brightly for Real Madrid, grabbing a brace in the first half.

It has been a tremendous turnaround for the 19-year-old wonderkid who did not play during the first half of the season due to injuries and found game-time hard to come by after making his comeback.

Speaking after the game, Guler revealed the advice that he received from Carlo Ancelotti when he was not playing regularly, as he said:

“Even when I wasn’t playing he always communicated with me. He told me to be patient and to keep working, that my time would come. Those words gave me confidence.”

With regard to his recent form, Guler added: “I’m in love with the ball, I love playing football and thank God I’m scoring these goals.”

“I have completely adapted to the team. Everyone here, including the coach and my teammates, are helping me. I want to keep scoring goals like this to make my teammates and the people who believe in me happy.”

The Turkish sensation now has six goals in just ten La Liga appearances (373 minutes), meaning he averages a goal every 62 minutes.

“I never thought I would have numbers like this. I only think about football and working hard. I’m very happy and proud to have these numbers,” he said about his returns.

Regarding the game itself and Real Madrid failing to win despite taking a big lead in the first half, Guler remarked:

“We played a good first half. We were 4-1 up, but our opponents also played well. Of course, Real Madrid always play to win and today it was a draw, but I still think we played well.”

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
