The deal to bring playmaker Arda Güler from Fenerbahce to Real Madrid has been finalized.
The 18-year-old was at the center of a LaLiga battle between Barcelona and Carlo Ancelotti’s team.
However, Los Blancos prevailed in the struggle of wills by striking a deal that satisfied Güler’s €17.5 million release clause with the Super Lig team.
The young man, who is now a full-fledged Turkey international, will likely meet up with his new teammates during their preseason program.
Güler arrives at the Santiago Bernabéu with a growing reputation and technical prowess that has led to comparisons to former Real Madrid player Mesut ozil.
