There is much excitement in the Real Madrid camp heading into the new season.

If the Champions League triumph was not enough, the club have roped in Kylian Mbappe and Endrick for the coming season.

On the flip side, though, there could be multiple exits in the Real Madrid camp, with Dani Ceballos emerging as one of the candidates who could leave the club.

It was reported earlier that Real Madrid will consider bids for the midfielder, who is unhappy with his lack of game-time at Santiago Bernabeu.

Ceballos’ role in the Real Madrid squad could dwindle further despite the retirement of Toni Kroos. And keeping that in mind, his former club Real Betis have been linked with a move for the former Arsenal star.

However, in a recent media interaction, Real Betis president Angel Haro confirmed that the club are not in a position to re-sign Dani Ceballos in the coming summer.

“The probability of him coming to Betis is remote. The circumstances do not exist for him to be able to arrive here,” Haro clarified (h/t Diario AS).

Haro’s comments are hardly surprising as Real Betis are not in the best economic condition right now.

Approaching Ceballos, therefore, could prove to be tricky, especially with the Real Madrid midfielder having a contract at the Bernabeu until 2027.

What should be Real Madrid’s play?

With a Real Betis move ruled out, Real Madrid must now look for other potential suitors for Ceballos this summer.

Fortunately for Los Blancos, the Spaniard should have no shortage of suitors. AC Milan were earlier linked with a move for the midfielder while Atletico Madrid, too, are reportedly interested in his services.

It is apparent that Ceballos is rated highly in Europe. But the likelihoods of his exit may ultimately depend on how much Real Madrid value the player in the coming summer, with the club reportedly keen on receiving at least €10 million.

Real Madrid are looking for defensive reinforcements in the summer amid question marks over the continuity of captain Nacho Fernandez.

Leny Yoro of Lille has been the top target, with the teenager’s contract with the French club expiring in a year.

However, Lille’s transfer demands are making the possibility of a transfer difficult, which has seemingly prompted Los Blancos to look for alternatives.

Cristian Romero on the radars

Now, ESPN Argentina reports that Real Madrid are interested in Tottenham Hotspur defender and vice-captain Cristian Romero heading into the summer.

In fact, it is even claimed that the reigning champions of Spain and Europe have already asked about the 25-year-old World Cup winner.

Romero has been with Tottenham since 2021, having initially arrived on loan from Atalanta before the move was made permanent a year later.

The 25-year-old has been a regular fixture in the lineup for the Lilywhites and was even made vice-captain last season by manager Ange Postecoglou.

The centre-half was also a part of the Argentina squad that won the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Romero’s contract with Tottenham runs until the summer of 2027. Considering how important he is to the team and the duration of his contract, Spurs will demand a hefty sum for him if Real Madrid do make an approach.

Given the Merengues’ reluctance to splash big bucks especially with funds being set aside for Alphonso Davies as well, any move for Romero this summer appears extremely unlikely.
