Arda Güler, the young player from Fenerbahçe, is ultimately joining Real Madrid.

There was fierce competition for his signature. AC Milan, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Dortmund, Salzburg, Sevilla, and RB Leipzig were all in the mix. Barcelona and PSG were also interested. However, the 18-year-old player surprised everyone and chose… Real Madrid.

According to The Athletic, Real Madrid paid €20 million, slightly more than the release clause. Fenerbahçe also negotiated a 20% share of any potential future transfer fee. This happened despite Barcelona sending special envoys to Turkey. However, the Spanish club intended to loan him out for a season.
