Real Madrid want to bring Dani Ceballos back after his loan spell so he can play for them next season, according to reports in Spain.
AS report that Real Madrid are trying to cut costs wherever possible to save up money for a summer of spending. In order to achieve this goal, they’re planning to bring back five of their loanees to join the first-team squad.
Obviously, they could sell the loanees to bring in some money, but the argument is that they’d have to replace them at a similar cost and potentially higher wages too.
One of the five mentioned is Ceballos, though AS admit the player’s relationship with Zinedine Zidane is a bit of a problem. They claim Ceballos is only likely to spend his future in Madrid if Zidane doesn’t.
Unai Emery suggested earlier this week that it’s “very soon” to be talking about Ceballos’ future. He claimed the midfielder is still in an adaptation period with good games and bad games so far, and there’s still a long way to go from October to May.
Despite Emery’s claims to the contrary, some reports in the Spanish media suggest Arsenal have already made their mind up on the midfielder. You can find out more here.
