Dani Ceballos’ contract with Real Madrid expires at the end of this season. The plan to negotiate a new contract extension has not yet been confirmed.
Ceballos is not a key player for Real Madrid at the moment. The Spanish star was only used by coach Ancelotti in a drip. Ceballos has appeared 29 times for Real this season, scoring 1 goal and contributing 6 assists.
Coach Ancelotti is quite open to keeping Ceballos. However, Real Madrid will be the party to make the final decision.
With rumors about his future growing, Ceballos insists he will only sign for Real Madrid if he feels happy. It is possible that Ceballos will stay at the Bernabeu if given more opportunities to play.
“I don’t want to sign for Real Madrid or any other club if I don’t deserve it. I have 3 months left on my contract, after which I will talk to the right people and my family. When the season is over, I will evaluate the best move for the future.”
Real Madrid are aiming for a sweeping overhaul in midfield in the summer. In addition to Dani Ceballos, the legendary central midfield pair Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are also out of contract.
At the moment, Real Madrid are targeting Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham. It is likely that Los Blancos will devote all their efforts to this deal, thereby completing a new look for the team’s midfield from next season.
