Real Madrid may not boast of many bonafide star names on the field. However, every single player in white is a champion in his own right.

The team’s consistent runs deep into the UEFA Champions League year after year show that there is something positive in the ecosystem and the belief of the players. Thus, renewing the contracts of existing stars can never be a bad idea at the club.

According to reports from AS, Real Madrid have called Dani Ceballos to start talks over a contract extension. The midfielder’s deal runs out in the summer and the club thus wishes to accelerate the process.

Earlier in the season, there were doubts over Ceballos’ continuity. Given the numerous midfield options and the projected signings, the Spaniard appeared surplus.

“There is no bigger club than Madrid. I have four months left on my contract, but I am going to give everything to show that I want to stay here. I have to grit my teeth and show that I have the level to play here,” he said in an interview in January as revealed by GOAL.

Ceballos’ improved level on the field in recent months has turned his situation around. Given Carlo Ancelotti’s trust in the player, there is now a chance that he will remain at the club beyond the ongoing campaign.

However, considering that Toni Kroos has also signed a new contract and the Merengues are also working to renew Luka Modric, while trying to sign Jude Bellingham, it still remains uncertain as to whether Ceballos will have a bigger role in the team, something which he desires.

The 26-year-old has made 22 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid this season and provided two assists in the process. Further, he averages 1.1 key passes per game and has created one big chance.

Ceballos is expected to start later today when Real Madrid take on Celta Vigo. The midfielder is likely to replace Luka Modric who played the full 90 minutes against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Real Madrid are considering terminating the contract of €115 million flop – report

Eden Hazard is one of the Real Madrid players who have vowed to stay at Santiago Bernabeu until the end of his contract. His current deal at the club expires in 2024.

Even though the Real Madrid star has been courted by several MLS and even the Saudi Arabian clubs, the forward has shown no desire to leave Bernabeu just yet. He wants to stay at the club even though Los Blancos are ready to sanction his sale this summer.

In the midst of this drama, a fresh report from Alfredo Matilla suggests Real Madrid are now considering terminating the contract of Eden Hazard.

This comes shortly after a report which claimed that a Real Madrid player who is not out of contract this summer, may shockingly leave the club this summer. Ferland Mendy was a potential candidate, but it appears Hazard has not been ruled out either.

The Belgian international has offered very little since joining from Chelsea in 2019 for a record-breaking €115 million fee. His spell at the Bernabeu has been marred by injuries, while the player has also struggled to impress when given the opportunities.

Inside the Real Madrid dressing room, there is both grief and resentment towards Belgian, who has remained steadfast in his decision to stay at the club. He has a good standing in the team due to his professionalism, but the Real Madrid bosses are determined to get rid of him this summer.

Hazard, after all, is the highest-paid player in the squad and his departure could open up a chunk of the space in the salary mass. But it must be noted that Real Madrid would have to spend a fortune to terminate Hazard’s contract.

Hence, it will be interesting to see whether or not Los Blancos end up splashing the cash in order to get Hazard out of their books this coming summer.
