Dani Ceballos is with Arsenal for one year but, at the end of his loan, there is no guarantee Real Madrid won’t sell him and one Spanish site believes he could end up being their most profitable signing ever.
Real Madrid signed Dani Ceballos from Real Betis in the summer of 2017 for just £14.84m, a price not far off actual peanuts in today’s market.
Now, with a reported value of around £27m according to transfermarkt, by the end of his loan spell, he could well have more than doubled his value.
Fichajes write that Ceballos being shipped off on loan could be one of the best decisions Real Madrid ever made with the player performing so well.
Either they end up getting one of the top midfielders around for nothing next summer or they get to sell him for a massive profit, making him ‘one of the most profitable signings in the history of the Madrid team’.
Zidane has said there is no problem between him and Ceballos but it’s clear that he doesn’t want him in his side – why else would he let him leave after not picking him? If you like a player, you play him. It really is that simple.
Fichajes, however, note that Zidane seems to be the only person in Madrid who hasn’t realised Ceballos’ talent and ‘incredible potential’.
Arsenal fans, therefore, should probably be hoping the Frenchman stays stubborn and in charge at the Bernabeu.
