Real Madrid wonderkid training with greater intensity to play against Juventus – report



According to journalist Jorge Picon, Real Madrid new signing Arda Guler is going to be the only absentee for tonight’s El Clasico, but the former Fenerbahce midfielder is training with more intensity to try to make it to the game against Juventus in Orlando.

Guler, who signed for Real Madrid for a fee reported to be around €20 million on a six-year contract, is yet to recover from discomfort in his right leg.

Of late, although the player has resumed training, he will not feature against Barcelona tonight in Dallas, as was confirmed by manager Carlo Ancelotti himself.

However, if given greenlight by the medical staff, the 18-year-old might be in contention to play against Juventus which is going to be Los Blancos’ last pre-season friendly.

What’s wrong with Guler?

Since arriving earlier this month, Guler had been making all the right noises in pre-season training.

However, he has been dealing with discomfort in his right leg and has not trained with the rest of the group since last Saturday.

It has led to him missing the first two pre-season friendlies against AC Milan and Manchester United, leaving fans waiting to see the 18-year-old in action in the famous whites of Madrid.

Until Friday, the midfielder was seen training separately as he continues to recover from the problem that has forced him out of the recent starting XIs.

Although it is evident that Guler is close to full fitness, getting into the playing XI might require a few more days.

It is believed that after missing out against Milan and Manchester United, the 18-year-old was looking forward to featuring against Barcelona.

But he has been advised against making his debut for Los Blancos in El Clasico, which is understandable as the team do not wish to take any risk with him.

In the meantime, though, Guler has begun doing training sessions at a higher intensity so that he could be ready to feature in the final friendly game of the US tour against Juventus.

For him to achieve full fitness, Real Madrid’s medical team has prepared a specific plan to achieve the goal in the best way possible.

This is mostly done to avoid any possible relapse during the upcoming season that would halt his progress. 

So for now, while the 18-year-old is certain to miss the Clasico, there is a chance that he could feature against Juventus.

Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
