Matches continue to come hard and fast as we reach the penultimate game of the season in La Liga. The headliner this weekend is Sevilla’s trip to the capital of Spain where they will take on Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Ahead of the game, Diego Simeone has selected 20 players that will host Julien Lopetegui’s men. Two defenders are missing from the squad list in the form of Renan Lodi, who is suspended, and Sime Vrsaljko, who picked up an injury early in the Elche clash.

The midfield is stacked, with all but Thomas Lemar fit and called up. The Frenchman will miss the rest of the season, along with Joao Felix.

Tomorrow very well could be Luis Suarez’s last game at the Wanda, and it would not be farfetched to expect him to be in the starting lineup for the game.

Javier Serrano and Giuliano Simeone are the youth team players called up.

In a major development, journalist Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has decided to sign a new contract with the club and will pen a four-year deal to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 26-year-old midfielder’s current contract with Real Madrid stands to expire at the end of the season. And there had been conflicting reports over whether he would be offered a new deal by the Merengues.

But the Spaniard has managed to turn things around spectacularly in recent weeks, putting up top displays one after the other, helping Real Madrid emerge out of a poor run at the start of the new year.

It has convinced the club to hand him a new contract and it seems like things are moving swiftly on the renewal front for Ceballos.

Indeed, as per the update from Tomas Gonzalez-Martin, Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2027. It will see the midfielder receive an improved salary to the one that he is currently earning.

And Ceballos has decided to sign the deal. The former Real Betis ace has always maintained that he wants to continue at the Bernabeu beyond the current campaign. And the two parties could now be close to shaking hands on a new contract.

Ceballos joined Real Madrid from Real Betis back in 2017, arriving as one of the most talented young midfielders in La Liga. However, he found the going tough initially, thanks to the hegemony of the midfield trio of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro.

The Spaniard spent a couple of seasons on loan at Arsenal before returning to the club in 2021. If not for an injury while away at the Tokyo Olympics, Ceballos could have been sold that year.

Having returned to action in January last year, he has slowly but surely gained importance in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. And he is now set to be rewarded with a new four-year contract by the champions of Spain and Europe.
