Ceballos wants to emulate Modric, Kroos

Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has explained he ‘wants to be like’ new teammates Luka Modric and Toni Kroos and win plenty of trophies at the Bernabeu.

The 20-year-old joined Madrid from Betis in a deal reportedly in the region of €18m earlier this month and will challenge the two established midfielder’s for starting positions next season.

“I am a young player who has huge expectations to fulfil,” Ceballos said at his presentation.

“I am here to learn from fantastic players and to grow alongside them; the players here are at the highest level so naturally I want to learn from them.

“One day, I want to be like Luka and Toni because I want to be part of this club’s proud and amazing history.”
