Dani Ceballos is one of many Real Madrid players facing an uncertain future at the club. The midfielder has played a secondary role at the club and has yet to make himself a first-team regular under Carlo Ancelotti.

Injuries have not helped him either, and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, many expect the former Arsenal starlet to move on in 2023.

In light of his uncertain future, rumours have been swirling over his potential move away from Santiago Bernabeu. One such report claimed that the midfielder had rejected a move to Real Betis last month, as he is waiting for a move to the Premier League.

A central midfielder by trade, Ceballos played for Arsenal on loan for two seasons. During his time in England, he featured in 77 competitive matches for the Gunners, though he was not able to impress coach Mikel Arteta.

But while one would expect him to bat for a return to the Premier League, Ceballos himself has trashed rumours linking him to a move to England.

The midfielder responded to one tweet suggesting he had rejected a move to Real Betis. “Do not divert attention,” he retweeted (h/t Mundo Deportivo). The player indicated that he is still a part of Real Madrid and there is yet to be any definitive decision on his future.

Reports earlier this month had suggested that Ceballos is going to battle it out in his bid to earn a contract renewal at Real Madrid. Given the club’s lack of depth in the middle of the park, a renewal cannot be ruled out either, but a lot may depend on how the player fares during the second half of the campaign.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
