Barcelona midfielder Ilkay Gundogan praises Arda Guler, a rising star from Real Madrid, saying his play is similar to Mesut Ozil, the former Germany playmaker Guler moved to .

Joined Real Madrid from Fenerbahce last summer for an initial fee of €20 million with add-ons of €10 million. That price was more than his €17.5 million release clause. So that they can beat Barcelona in grabbing him to join the team. The youngster has been hailed as the next superstar by his Real Madrid teammates, including Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric.

Gundogan has now compared him to Ozil, one of the players he liked the most during his time at Real Madrid. Gundogan told Turkish media outlet AA SPOR , “Guler moved to Real. Madrid: This kid is a footballer with a lot of potential. I spoke with Rudiger. He really likes Arda. “Yes, he has physical problems and because of injuries. He has yet to start this season.

But he’s a really good kid, even Ozil said that. If there is any Turkish player who plays similar to Ozil, the first name is Arda Guler. I think the future of this kid is bright and worth watching.” Guler has not played for Real Madrid yet . He is currently injured due to three injuries since he joined in the summer. He had knee surgery in August before two more muscle problems kept him out of action.
