Arda Guler (winner)

Arda Guler is waiting for his breakthrough at Real Madrid after signing last summer. Understandably given the quality above him in the pecking order, it is difficult for him to prove himself.

With Federico Valverde potentially on his way out, from a selfish perspective Arda Guler would consider this a win for himself, since it is one less world-class barrier to entry into the first team.

Carlo Ancelotti (loser)

If Federico Valverde is sold this summer, Real Madrid would lose a key part of their club culture. Fede has been with the club for eight years, after signing from Peñarol and spending time in both youth academies.

Fede is a well-loved individual not just by the fans but by Carlo Ancelotti in particular. As a manager who always has his tactical cap on, he can always rely on Fede to embrace new roles and opportunities in the starting eleven. This is the reason why no player has started more times for Real Madrid in La Liga this season.


Do you think Real Madrid should sell Federico Valverde in the summer transfer window?
