Milan and Juventus could be set to do battle for out-of-favour Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos on a two-year loan deal, say reports in Spain.
The 21-year-old joined Los Blancos in a €16m deal from Real Betis last summer but has struggled for regular playing time and has made only two La Liga starts this campaign.
El Mundo Deportivo state both Serie A clubs are eyeing a two-year loan deal for the playmaker, who they believe could fit straight into their starting line-up whilst also developing.
The report draws parallels between this ambition and Juve’s 2014 deal for Alvaro Morata, who joined the Old Lady in 2014 for €20m before re-joining Madrid two years later for €30m.
Madrid reportedly would not sanction an exit without a decisive stay in the Spain Under-21 star’s future.
