Only two of the three players Real Madrid attempted to convince to stay have responded to the club’s offers. Nacho Fernandez chose to accept the new contract and appears set to continue while Marco Asensio gladly took the letter of freedom.

The third player, Dani Ceballos, has not yet gotten back to the Merengues with a final decision. Four days after the final game of the season, he finally appears to have made his pick.

According to reports from AS, the midfielder is happy with the new terms that Real Madrid have offered him. He will stay at the club and fight it out for a place in midfield.

Los Blancos have reportedly offered Ceballos a three-year contract with improved wages for next season. Moreover, Carlo Ancelotti’s personal assurance of faith has gone a long way in helping him decide his future and anchor his ship at Real Madrid.

The Spanish international has endured a largely bench-centred role at the Santiago Bernabeu so far in his career. While the situation persisted last season, he did enjoy a notable improvement in playing time.

In 20 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid last season, the 26-year-old made 19 starts and averaged 53 minutes per game. Further, he notched up four assists to his name and averaged one key pass per match.

Heading into next season, Ceballos is expected to continue in the role of a star backup. After all, it will not be easy to get ahead of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde, Aurelien Tchouameni, and new acquisition Jude Bellingham on the pecking order.

With the Spaniard staying at the Bernabeu, Real Madrid will likely not go after any more signings in midfield in the summer transfer market. The priority, at the moment, is the forward line where Los Blancos have only two senior players.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
