Moretto confirms forward could be allowed to leave Real Madrid amid Milan links

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been linked with a move for Arda Güler over the past few weeks, and journalist Matteo Moretto has given his take on the situation.

Güler was heavily linked with Milan during the last summer transfer window but ended up joining Real Madrid instead, but now eight months later the Turkish playmaker could leave the Bernabeu side due to a lack of playing time. are just one of the sources who claimed that the LaLiga champions are already pondering a loan move for the 19-year-old, hoping that he can continue his development elsewhere.

Milan are watching the situation closely and they could offer up a Brahim Diaz-esque deal to Real Madrid, where they had him for three seasons before sending him back to the Spanish capital.

Matteo Moretto was asked about the Guler to Milan links as part of his column for CaughtOffside, and we have relayed his comments on the situation below.

“Regarding Arda Guler and his Real Madrid future, the only thing I can say is that he could go out on loan to have continuity and keep growing, as revealed last week. I have no news of Milan being interested at the moment,” he said.

  1. We don’t want him. We aren’t training and grow Madrid players just to return them back ..hell no we don’t need him

    1. I agree, apparently we do anything to keep costs low and devalue our club. Furlianin pushed through the Jimenez deal with a low buy back clause that inherently means we agreed to do this for them again if the kid is worth his weight in salt.

      Arda wanted playing time, he and his agent should have offered his rights to us, not Madrid. He signed with them, so we can tell them to stay put, watch his contract dwindle down in Spain bad enjoy the seats at the Bernabeu.

      We shouldn’t beg the players or their team to offer them playing time who turned us down. His Dad can use his agent fees from the last transfer to buy out his contract, then we can make a lot of money off selling him when he wants to leave. Or else, he can watch his son’s career and tranfer value plummet when mid side spanish clubs, relegation threatened PL teams, Ajax or a only a Turkish league team wants him next year or the one after.

      Milan have no business accommodating feeder club terms and conditions to players. We are supposed to be a team looking to challenge for titles, not one celebrating mediocre achievements like loaning players to help them develop.

  2. I see what they want, and exactly to grow the club popularity in Turkey where people are mad about football. New Milan is all about marketing. Trophies are not so important. As long as the stadium is full when we play Europa League matches I don’t see why they would need to change the strategy. That’s not the Milan we fallen in love with 🙂

  3. This is only acceptable if we put in an option to buy. If we can loan him in for a year or two and then buy him outright for like 30mil or so if he tears it up, then sure. Otherwise, Just go buy Diaz back, since he also will likely seek more playing time once madrid bring mbappe in. Enough cheap temporary deals. Build a good team already

    1. He was available for 18 million, Milan didn’t pull the trigger, he had 3 injuries and 92 minutes of playing time, I don’t see us giving them 30 million. That would be bad business.

      His stock dropped way below whatever Madrid paid for him this summer. It will plummet further. I only see a loan an option to buy lower than Madrid paid, (which was 30, given they paid 20, plus 10mill and a 20% resale) with a future sale clause, maybe 25%, being viable for us. They have a depreciated asset, they overpaid for and will hit rock bottom if he doesn’t get chances to play somewhere he can proove his is a top end talent. We can give tgem a prefered buy back, meaning they can negotiate with him if he does well and wishes to return, we need to bullet proof a contract with release clauses etc. Or else, like the kid stay there.
