Witness- Turkish Arda Guler Khalifa Ozil .. From a ball collector to Real Madrid

The young Turkish player, Arda Guler, moved to Spanish Real Madrid, after he starred greatly in the local Premier League and became one of the most promising stars of Turkish football.

Guler, 18, succeeded in showing his true talent with his team, Fenerbahçe, and the Turkish national team in a few matches during the past season, which made him the focus of scouts for major European clubs, before he chose Real Madrid, preferring him to his rival Barcelona.

Yesterday, Thursday, Real Madrid announced its contract with Guler from Fenerbahce for a period of 6 years, in light of the royal quest to renew the blood of the team.

Guler’s high dribbling and scoring skills are very similar to Mesut Ozil, the German-Turkish star, whose successor is expected by some to be Ozil himself, who said of him “will become a global star”, as the young star enjoyed the companionship of the great star in Fenerbahce.

Guler was born in the capital, Ankara, on February 25, 2005.

He obtained his first amateur player’s license on August 15, 2014, when he was a player in the bases of the Gençler Birligi club in Ankara, and in the 2017-2018 season he worked as a ball collector in his team’s match with Trabzonspor in the 21st round of the Turkish Premier League.

Guler, who said in a statement to Anadolu Agency after that match, “I felt so excited that I could clearly hear my heartbeat,” moved to Fenerbahce on February 20, 2019.

Less than two years later, he signed his first professional contract with Fenerbahçe when he was 15 years old, on January 13, 2021.

Guler was able to prove his talent in a short time with Fenerbahce, which paved the way for him to the Turkish national team first, and then opened the doors of the European continent to him through the gate of Real Madrid, after only 30 months of his professionalism.

7 goals in 32 matches

Guler wore the Fenerbahce shirt for the first time in his match against Medipol Basaksehir in the U-14 Junior League on March 3, 2019, before moving to the U-15 and 16-year category in the 2019-2020 season, then the U-19 team in the following season.

The promising young man played two matches with the Turkish U-17 national team in 2021, before he was promoted to the first team and supported his ranks in 3 matches in 2022.

Guler was summoned to the list of the first Turkish national team, for the first time, for its friendly matches against Scotland and the Czech Republic on November 16 and 19, 2022, where he wore the national team shirt for the first time by entering the 68th minute of the match against the Czech Republic.
