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.

As Real Madrid gear up for their biggest test of the 2023/24 season so far against Atletico Madrid, manager Carlo Ancelotti has released the squad list for the game at the Civitas Metropolitano.

The biggest news is the inclusion of star forward Vinicius Jr in the squad, with the Brazilian seemingly making an ultra-swift recovery from his injury to make himself available for the Madrid derby.

Meanwhile, Jude Bellingham also makes the squad list after there were some concerns about his situation as he had a stomach issue on Friday.

Arda Guler has trained with the team but is still not ready for his debut while Dani Carvajal also misses out with injury. Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao remain long-term absentees.

Ferland Mendy makes a return to the squad list for a La Liga match after having recovered fully from his injury.

Youngster Nico Paz is still missing due to a knock that led to his absence in the midweek Champions League clash against Union Berlin.
