Arda Guler Vows to Fight for Place at Real Madrid Amid Loan Links

Despite reports suggesting a loan move to Italy is on the table, Turkish starlet Arda Güler has reportedly made his stance clear: he wants to stay at Real Madrid and fight for his place in the first team, sources have told Turkish-Football.

The 19-year-old midfielder joined Los Blancos in a €25 million deal from Fenerbahce last summer, but has seen limited playing time due to injuries and competition within a star-studded squad.

Tuttosport were the latest to report that Real Madrid have offered the midfielder to AC Milan in order for him to gain experience.

However, Güler has informed the club of his desire to remain in Spain and fight for his place at the Bernabéu.

The young talent reportedly believes in his abilities and is determined to prove himself under head coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti himself has acknowledged the need for Güler to play more and has urged for patience, but has yet to confirm any concrete plans regarding the player’s future.

“It depends on the circumstances. I think that a young player like him to progress needs to play to show his quality, that clashes with the demands of the team, and the club,” he said.

“We have to be patient for that reason. Obviously I understand that for his progression it is important to give him minutes, but at times that does not correspond to the demands of the team. I would like the fans to see the talent, but his moment will come.”

It remains to be seen if Güler will convince the Italian coach with his dedication and earn himself a more prominent role in the upcoming season.

One thing is clear – Arda Güler is not ready to give up on his dream of establishing himself at one of the biggest clubs in the world.
