The future of Dani Ceballos at Real Madrid has been under a cloud of doubt for a while now. The Spanish midfielder has seen a resurgence in recent months but the administration are not convinced if his services are required for the next campaign.

According to reports from AS, Carlo Ancelotti has shown signs that he wants Ceballos to renew. However, the club is more cautious about the situation and will not take an impulsive decision.

At just 26 years of age, the Spaniard has his best years ahead of him and could theoretically form the core of Los Blancos’ midfield for years to come. With Federico Valverde, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga performing at a high level, however, there are doubt as to whether he has a place in the team.

Ceballos has made 21 appearances for Real Madrid in La Liga this season, appearing as a starter on 11 occasions. He has provided two assists in that period and averages 1.1 key passes per game.

“I haven’t talked with Real Madrid about my extension. We have two interesting months ahead of us and I’m calm, it’s time to enjoy these two months.

“I would be making a mistake if I were to think about the extension, it’s time to enjoy football and take a step forward with Spain,” Ceballos told in an interview last month when asked about his future.

As expressed by the player, his future will indeed depend on his performance in the coming months. An impressive run at the business end of the season would almost ascertain the player of a longer future at Real Madrid.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
