Real Madrid today unveiled their new signing, Arda Güler.

The 18-year-old penned a six-year contract with the club.

The Turkish youngster has been unveiled as Madrid’s new no. 24.

Arda inherits the shirt that have been won by the likes of Claude Makelele and Dani Ceballos.

Guler also revealed that he has been following Real Madrid for a long time and wants to emulate club heroes such as Guti, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil and Luka Modric.

“Real Madrid has had great players and my idols are Guti, Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil and I want to be like them, to be a legend.

“I think Modric has a lot of quality and is the best midfielder in the world. While Ozil told me that Real Madrid is the best in the world. We have a relationship like brothers.”

Guler will join the Real Madrid squad for pre-season, and he has said that he doesn’t want to go out on loan.
