Even though he did not play as much as he would have liked, mostly because of injuries, Arda Guler did enjoy a memorable debut season at Real Madrid.

After all, the 19-year-old wonderkid was part of the team that won La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Having missed the entire first half of the season through injuries, the teenager did get some game-time in the back end of the campaign and he made it count, scoring some important goals and showcasing his potential.

But, given the competition at Real Madrid, Guler does not have a spot in the starting XI and minutes will likely be hard to come by again next term, leading to speculations about a loan move.

No shortage of interest

Now, according to AS, Arda Guler has no shortage of interest heading into the summer transfer window, with a number of teams keen on signing him on loan.

For starters, Getafe are seeking the Turkish international’s services as a replacement for Mason Greenwood, who is returning to Manchester United after his loan deal ran out.

Getafe president Angel Torres will meet with Real Madrid CEO Jose Angel Sanchez soon and is likely to request Guler on loan then.

Beyond that, other La Liga clubs like Real Sociedad, Sevilla, Las Palmas, and RCD Mallorca are all keen on his acquisition on a temporary basis.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho wants Guler on loan at Fenerbahce, the teenage wonderkid’s former club – something that he made clear at his presentation earlier this week.

Other than that, Italian giants AC Milan and German outfit RB Leipzig are also eager to sign Guler on loan, making it a total of eight clubs seeking his services.

Guler will not leave

While it is true that Guler might not play very frequently at Real Madrid next season, the idea of the player and the club is that he will not be leaving in the summer.

The same has already been confirmed by manager Carlo Ancelotti after the teenager’s match-winning display against Real Sociedad a little over a month ago.

“Arda scored and he is going to be a very important player for us in the future. There is no doubt that he will stay here next year,” the Real Madrid boss had 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.
