Real Madrid’s last game at Santiago Bernabeu this season ended in a rather anti-climatic fashion, as the newly-crowned Spanish champions were held 4-4 in an entertaining clash with Villarreal.

Despite the poor result, there were many positives for Real Madrid. Arda Guler, in particular, shone brightly as he produced arguably his best performance since joining Los Blancos last summer.

Real Madrid in awe of Guler

A recent report from The Athletic has highlighted the impact Guler has had during the final stretch of the campaign.

Despite being forced back by injuries, Guler retained his resolve and has emerged as one of La Liga’s greatest attractions lately.

At least that is the view shared by Real Madrid’s technical staff, who did not fail to highlight Guler’s impressive decision-making skills in the final third, shortly after the game against Villarreal.

Guler, who scored two goals on the night, was instrumental in breaking down the Villarreal defence time and time again, as he weaved his magic in the final third.

Even apart from his goals, it was Guler’s decision-making and quick thinking that stole the eye of Real Madrid’s technical staff.

Will Guler enjoy a more prominent role?

Thanks to a series of brilliant performances, it appears Guler is being perceived as something more than just a youth prospect, as far as Real Madrid are concerned.

Although that won’t be enough to convince Carlo Ancelotti to start in the upcoming Champions League final, it does bode well for the player’s prospects heading into next season.

With Luka Modric unsure of his future and Dani Ceballos likely to leave the club, Guler could enjoy a more prominent role in Real Madrid.

The Turkish international’s next objective will be to capitalise on his current form and finish the season on a strong note, before embarking on an equally crucial pre-season campaign.

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.
