Real Madrid have a number of players who see their contracts expire at the end of the ongoing season. Few of them, like Luka Modric and Karim Benzema, are pretty much guaranteed to renew while Mariano Diaz is expected to move on.

However, there are some whose futures remain uncertain and one such player is midfielder Dani Ceballos. The 26-year-old has hardly played this season and could be on his way out in the summer.

But, AS reports that Ceballos is determined to prove himself at Real Madrid and will fight to earn a new contract from the club.

Signed from Real Betis in 2017, the Spaniard was tipped for a bright future at Madrid but things have just not clicked for him at the capital club.

After spending a couple of years away on loan at Arsenal. Upon returning last year, he succumbed to an injury that kept him out of action for the first half of the 2021/22 season and he featured sporadically towards the back end.

While it was expected that Ceballos would leave this summer, manager Carlo Ancelotti convinced him to stay for another year. And the midfielder did fairly well whenever given an opportunity, although considering the competition for places game-time has been hard to come by.

Indeed, the 26-year-old has played just 209 minutes of football this season and has one assist to his name. However, in that time, he has shown that there is still a lot that he can offer to the team. And with a busy period ahead right after the World Cup break, Ceballos could get his chances.

After all, Luka Modric, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga have gone deep into the World Cup and will need to be managed carefully upon their return.

And, Ceballos, who started training for the second half of the campaign on December 1, is working hard to make himself count and earn a renewal from Real Madrid so that he can stay beyond the current campaign.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
