It has been reported on Tuesday that Arda Guler has decided to join Real Madrid this summer, thereby ending Barcelona’s hopes of signing the Turkish player.
Guler was highly linked with a move to Catalonia, but it seems that he will now head to the Spanish capital instead.
However, there are still some details to be sorted out before a deal can be agreed, despite Guler having already agreed to personal terms.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid has submitted a new bid to Fenerbahce, which is believed to be around €20m, and they are hoping that it will be accepted in the next couple of days.
Once a fee is agreed upon, Guler is expected to fly to Madrid to finalize the deal, which Diario AS has reported to be completed as early as this week.
Guler will become the fifth summer signing for Real Madrid, and he is expected to be a valuable player for both the present and the future.
It is undeniable that Real Madrid is close to signing someone whom many people believe will be a superstar.
