The Utrera-born midfielder’s fluctuating position at Real Madrid
Dani Ceballos has been a subject of much discussion at Chamartín.
The Real Madrid midfielder’s contract is set to expire on June 30, and he has not yet renewed despite, with reports of an offer on the table seemingly inaccurate.
Speculation about Ceballos’ departure from Santiago Bernabéu has grown since the beginning of the campaign, with neither the fans nor the club’s management seemingly counting on the Utrera native for next season.

Now, the Ceballos case has become complicated once again.

Additionally, the midfielder has not seen the desired playing time in other high-profile games, such as the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Liverpool, where he played only eight minutes.

His recent call-up by Luis De La Fuente to join Spain’s national team for international commitments offers him a chance to showcase his talent.
