The 18-year-old midfielder, who joined Real Madrid from Fenerbahce at the beginning of the season, battled injuries that restricted his appearances.

However, he made the most of his chance against Celta Vigo, scoring a goal after coming on as a substitute, earning praise from fans and analysts alike.

Real ended up winning the game 4-0 with the Turkish international scoring his first goal of the season.

According to the Aksam report, this performance sealed Güler’s fate. While previously considered for a loan, he will now remain with the team and wait for further opportunities from Ancelotti.

The midfielder is determined to battle for his place in the team and remains committed.

Despite suffering two significant injuries this season, Güler managed to play 93 minutes across 6 appearances for Real Madrid. Club president Perez and CEO Jose Angel Sanchez are confident in Güler’s potential for significant development within Real Madrid.

Ancelotti is expected to provide Güler with more playing time going forward, allowing the young talent to showcase his skills and contribute to Real Madrid’s success.

The Spanish giants will face Osasuna next on Saturday 16 March.
