A recent report from Mundo Deportivo has highlighted how Premier League clubs could raid Real Madrid as the club brace itself for a busy summer ahead.

The likes of Ferland Mendy and Rodrygo are among the players hot on the radar of these English clubs as we approach the final phase of the campaign.

Another player in that list could be former Arsenal midfielder, Dani Ceballos.

Newcastle United keen on Ceballos

The report from MD cites the English press, which claims that Premier League clubs are interested in the services of the Real Madrid star this summer.

Newcastle United, in particular, are serious about signing the Spaniard, as they look to beef up their options in the middle of the park.

Ceballos has endured a difficult season so far, often being held back by injuries while falling behind the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga in the pecking order.

As a result, the former Real Betis starlet has only mustered 228 minutes of league action so far, with no real indications that his game-time will improve in the coming weeks.

Will Ceballos return to England?

Ceballos, for his part, is reportedly keen on leaving Real Madrid, knowing he may not have any future at Santiago Bernabeu.

The established midfield trio of Federico Valverde, Tchouameni and Camavinga is one of the key reasons why Ceballos believes his time in the Spanish capital is up.

A move away from the Bernabeu, therefore, could make a world of sense. Although the midfielder has been linked with his former club Real Betis, a move to England might not be ruled out.

Ceballos has significant experience in the Premier League, having spent a couple of years on loan at Arsenal.

A move to Newcastle, to that end, would give him the ideal opportunity to once again showcase his talents in one of the most competitive leagues in the world.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
