Arda Guler

Arda Guler, the rising star of Real Madrid, has outperformed everyone’s expectations and garnered adulation that even eclipses the honors bestowed upon some club heroes.

The Turkish child’s experience at Los Blancos changed after a difficult beginning.

Rewarding the faith shown in him with two goals, the former Fenerbahce prodigy has been handed starting duties in the previous three La Liga games, according to Transfermarkt.

Despite being heralded as the “Turkish Messi,” there were initially questions about how well he would fit into Madrid’s approach. These worries appeared to be exacerbated by his lack of playing time under senior coach Carlo Ancelotti.

But ever since he made his La Liga debut against Real Sociedad, Guler’s tenacity has paid dividends. Barring any setbacks, he has continuously shown his ability and is ready for greater opportunities.

The 19-year-old would be looking to establish himself for the next campaign and lock down his spot in the Real Madrid starting lineup with just three games left in the current campaign.

Guti, who is renowned for his extraordinary vision and playmaking skills, has categorically stated that Guler is a “much better” player than he is, recognizing the young player’s extraordinary talent and potential.
