So far, Real Madrid seems to have made a poor purchase with Arda Güler. The eighteen-year-old Turkish forward is still awaiting his first playing minutes in the senior team and seemed to be able to do that this week. Coach Carlo Ancelotti proudly announced that he would be available soon, but an hour later, a medical update followed with bad news.
Sofyan Amrabat made a positive impression on the English media during his starting debut for Manchester United in the League Cup match against Crystal Palace. The Moroccan international, who played as a left-back, received high ratings in the newspapers.
Carlo Ancelotti is extremely positive about the work of his colleague Xabi Alonso. The Spaniard has been impressive in the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen and is being linked in Spain with succeeding Ancelotti at Real Madrid.
