Real Madrid will have a stacked attack for the next season after the arrival of long-standing target Kylian Mbappe and the Frenchman’s arrival is likely to pose a threat to Turk prodigy Arda Guler, reported Mundo Deportivo (MD) on Wednesday.

Guler was signed by Madrid in the 2023 summer transfer window. There was massive hype around the transfer but the Turk met with multiple injuries and eventually underwent knee surgery.

He made his official debut in early January in a Copa del Rey game but he has been struggling to get playing time since then as head coach Carlo Ancelotti is using other players.

Fans have shown their frustration as Guler has not been playing much and Ancelotti has repeatedly asked the Turk to have patience.

Recently, Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos also shared his two cents on the Turk’s situation and stated that he needs to remain calm as Ancelotti knows what he is doing.

“Turkish fans are very proud to have Arda Güler at Real Madrid, they become a little impatient & of course they want him to play a lot as soon as possible. We have a great coach and he will surely handle it very well,” he said.

As per MD, multiple clubs have shown interest in Guler one of which is AC Milan. Madrid’s forward Brahim Diaz played for The Rossoneri on loan for three years and returned as a key player this summer.

While a move to the Italian club would be great as Guler will get the experience of the Champions League, Los Blancos would prefer that the Turk remain in La Liga to get familiar with the league’s playing style.

Las Palmas, Real Sociedad, and RCD Mallorca have emerged as possible loan destinations but nothing has been finalised yet.

Remember, Real Madrid have signed Mbappe according to multiple reports and only an official announcement is left. With the Frenchman’s arrival, the Whites will have a stacked attack of Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo, Mbappe, Joselu, Bellingham, Brahim Diaz and Endrick.
