Dani Ceballos renewed his contract with Real Madrid last summer after being reassured of regular minutes at the club. After all, he spent a significant spell in the limelight last season when Luka Modric was ruled out with injury.

The new season, however, has not gone well for the Spanish midfielder. Regular injuries have seen him miss a significant part of the action, while the increased competition in the position has made his role insignificant under Carlo Ancelotti.

Enroute Seville?

As relayed by Mundo Deportivo, Ceballos is once again linked with a move to Real Betis, as he has several times before. This time, however, there is a good chance the deal will come to fruition.

The Spanish outlet reveals that Los Verdiblancos continue to maintain eyes on the Real Madrid star. They believe that this is the year that their former youth player, finally, will return home.

Ceballos’ contract with Real Madrid ties him down to the Spanish capital until 2026. Nevertheless, there are still good chances that the two clubs can make the deal work out.

Competition of the highest extreme

Ceballos indeed deserves to be a starter at a top-level club. Nestled in his prime, he is a player capable of making a difference for any elite club.

His ostracisation at Real Madrid is down to the heavy competition among Ancelotti’s troops and in no way down to a lack of quality.

Los Blancos currently have Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Federico Valverde, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Jude Bellingham, Brahim Diaz, Arda Guler, and Ceballos all competing for just four places in midfield.

A departure this summer, needless to say, could be a possibility. After all, he has only played 247 minutes in La Liga all season.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
