Arda Güler, the new twist


By: Manu Tournoux

After suggesting he could leave the club this summer, the prodigy has reportedly changed his mind.

Real Madrid star Arda Güler has endured a frustrating first season in Spain, but his opening goal against Celta Vigo last weekend seemed to release a lot of tension. After hinting he could leave the club this summer, the tone appears to have changed.

Güler has shown his frustration at not being given his chance, and Carlo Ancelotti is part of a growing group who believe he should be loaned out this summer in order to continue to develop. The Turkish prodigy has always said he wants to compete for his place at Santiago Bernabéu.

More opportunities

Turkish newspaper Aksam (via TF) claims the star’s loan move has been scrapped as he looks to earn more playing time under Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian said after Sunday’s match that Guler would have “more opportunities”, even if not tomorrow.

Given that the news comes from Güler’s home country, this fits with the view of the player, who is clearly convinced that he does not need to leave to get playing time. It is unlikely that the Real Madrid have changed their minds over the past week based on a few minutes of action, but there may have been discussions with Ancelotti, who ultimately decides whether the player is on the pitch or not .
