Dani Ceballos faces tense wait on Real Madrid extension

Real Madrid star Dani Ceballos has admitted he does not know if he will still be at the club next season.
The Spanish international returned to Los Blancos last summer, after two years away on loan at Arsenal, with his career at a major crossroads.
The Gunners were unconvinced over retaining him with his role in Madrid significantly reduced under Carlo Ancelotti.
However, despite starting just two La Liga games before the 2022 World Cup, Ancelotti has opted to turn to him in recent weeks.

A busy schedule across multiple competitions, combined with veteran stars needing a break after their exertions in Qatar, has opened the door for Ceballos.

His contract is due to expire in June and the 26-year-old has no idea over the club’s plan for him.
“Playing for Real Madrid, there is no bigger club than this,” as per reports from DAZN, covered via Marca.
“It’s time to clench my teeth and wait. I have four months left, and many games ahead, for me to show the level I can perform at for this club.”
Ceballos netted the winner in Los Blancos 3-2 Copa del Rey comeback win at Villarreal in midweek and Ancelotti could utilise him in the next round against Atletico Madrid on January 26.

  1. Espn sports gave worst performer of the game to Ceballos.

    Lol what?

    He found Valverde who teed it up in creation of first goal and was obviously instructed by Ancelotti to lie a bit deeper tonight.

    The author needs a CAT-scan. Watch the games….

    1. I would give Ceballos an extension and give him more game time. Asensio on the other hand get rid he wants more money too.

      1. I agree. Ceballos is so underrated, but works hard to win balls back and can slice open defenses with passes.
        Problem is that barcELona want Asensio as well (on a free transfer)and helping them for free doesnt sound like a good idea.

        Perhaps we should go after some of their players to maintain no aggression singning pact between clubs?
