Dani Ceballos, ex-Arsenal midfielder, is closer to extending his tenure at Real Madrid, following a new offer that’s inching towards his expectations.
- Real Madrid have presented a new renewal offer to Dani Ceballos, coming close to the former Arsenal midfielder’s demands.
- Other teams, including Betis and clubs from the Italian Serie A, are closely monitoring Ceballos’s situation at Real Madrid.
- The arrival of Jude Bellingham may influence Ceballos’s decision, increasing competition for starting places in the team.
Former Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos is edging closer to extending his contract at Real Madrid, following a revised offer by the club.
The latest proposal is close to what Ceballos seeks, though it still falls short of his set expectations. Even so, the prospect of his stay, which seemed distant earlier, is now gaining traction.
While this unfolds, other clubs including Betis and some from the Italian Serie A, are keeping an eye on Ceballos’s situation at Real Madrid. Notwithstanding, Ceballos has consistently prioritised Real Madrid.
Despite receiving offers earlier in January, the Andalusian chose to stay, seeking more playing minutes.
This situation draws parallels to the recent case of Marco Asensio, who turned down a similar proposal by Real Madrid.
Ceballos, like Asensio, is currently pondering over his decision. The club’s management hopes for some reflection time before the final choice is made.
Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid’s manager, expressed last Saturday that the potential departure of any of these players would be a blow.
However, he, like any other coach, can’t guarantee their desired playing time. Ceballos has seen an increase in his importance over the season, but it’s still below his perceived requirement.
An additional layer to Ceballos’s decision is the impending arrival of Jude Bellingham, who is likely to be a regular starter.
The English midfielder’s addition could further complicate Ceballos’s quest for more playing time.
In light of these developments, Real Madrid’s latest offer to Ceballos marks a significant step in their efforts to retain him.
Yet, the ball remains in the player’s court, with the decision set to significantly impact Real Madrid’s midfield dynamics in the coming season.
