Although the future of Dani Ceballos is still hanging in thin air, Real Madrid are delighted with the midfielder’s recent performances, reports José Luis Sánchez on El Chiringuito TV.

Ceballos, 26, has played in each of Madrid’s last four outings across all competitions and it was, in fact, his 86th-minute goal that gave Madrid a 3-2 win over Villarreal in the Copa del Rey recently.

This prompted Carlo Ancelotti to use him as a starter against Athletic Club. Interestingly enough, this was Ceballos’s first league start since appearing against Real Valladolid back in late December. And the midfielder put in another solid performance at San Mames.

Despite his recent success, Real Madrid are still silent over a potential contract renewal. It must be remembered that Ceballos’ ongoing deal with the club runs out at the end of the season and there is still no official word about his continuity.

The expression is pretty much similar from the player’s end mostly because everything is extremely uncertain. Speaking about his future recently, however, the 26-year-old expressed that he indeed wants to continue.

“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 had said (h/t GOAL).

For the moment, the extension is stalled and there is a possibility that he might leave for free in June. Furthermore, it must be understood that the player is not short of offers. In fact, his difficult situation has attracted several suitors but it seems the player does not want to leave.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, even their roster is pretty much unsettled mostly because of the unresolved futures of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. So if anyone between the two decides to call it quits, Madrid will need someone to cover the space and this is where Ceballos can chip in.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
