In a major update, Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato is reporting that Aston Villa are pushing to sign Real Madrid duo Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio, both of whom will be free agents in the summer.

Both Asensio and Ceballos see their current contracts expire on June 30, following which they would become free agents and can sign for any club of their desire.

However, the duo has been in negotiations with Real Madrid over a new deal, but there has been no agreement reached as of yet.

Aston Villa’s interest in Asensio is not new and reports had emerged earlier this week that Unai Emery was keen on recruiting the 27-year-old winger.

However, the Spanish international, as per the update from Santi Aouna, has doubts about a possible transfer to Birmingham and is currently prioritising renewing his contract with the Spanish capital outfit.

As for Ceballos, the report indicates that Aston Villa have already sent in a ‘very important offer’ for the midfielder. The 26-year-old has doubts about his continuity at Real Madrid due to his limited role in the side.

Indeed, Ceballos is behind the likes of Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde, Luka Modric, and Eduardo Camavinga in the pecking order. Things will only get trickier for him next season with Jude Bellingham edging closer to a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

As such, Aston Villa are prepared to offer him a way out of Madrid, with an important proposal already sent to the former Real Betis ace.

Ceballos is not a stranger to the Premier League, having spent two seasons on loan at Arsenal. And it now remains to be seen whether he fancies a return to English shores before next season.

According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid are shifting its focus towards securing new contracts for key players Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy in the upcoming weeks.

Both Carvajal and Mendy have contracts that are set to expire in 2025. While there have been some challenges regarding Mendy’s future, Real Madrid have remained clear about their intentions for the Euro 2024 winner.

Over the past year, Carvajal has had an impressive run, adding three more trophies to his collection with Real Madrid, including the Euro 2024 championship. 

Interestingly, he is currently not overly concerned about his future. He hasn’t been thinking much about his contract extension, with the last major news about it surfacing about a month ago.

“At the moment I’m not thinking about leaving Madrid, far from it. My subjective perception is that the day I can’t contribute what I can contribute, I’ll take a step aside,” he said a few weeks back.

On the other hand, Mendy’s future at Real Madrid seemed uncertain due to rumours that he might be replaced by Alphonso Davies. 

However, Carlo Ancelotti has shown an unusually strong preference for retaining Mendy. The manager has made it clear that he wants Mendy to stay. 

He has praised Mendy’s skills and performances throughout the past season, making it evident that he sees Mendy as a crucial part of his strategy.

At present, there is a significant concern within the team that if an agreement is not reached by next summer, Mendy could leave the club on a free transfer. This scenario is something Real Madrid are keen to avoid.

As Real Madrid move forward with these contract negotiations, the focus remains on securing the futures of both Carvajal and Mendy, ensuring that they continue to contribute to the club’s success in the years to come.
