After a rather difficult start to the season when game-time was hard to come by, Dani Ceballos has forced his way into Carlo Ancelotti’s plans at Real Madrid. While he is still not a permanent starter, the Spaniard has proven himself to be a valuable player, especially in the second half of the campaign.

And with his current contract with the club expiring on June 30, Real Madrid have made moves to try and tie him down to a new deal at the club.

Indeed, according to Onda Betica, Real Madrid have tabled a three-year contract proposal to Ceballos, which would keep him at the club until the summer of 2026. However, the new offer does not come with an increase in salary nor an improvement in his role within the team.

Ceballos already finds himself behind Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Federico Valverde in the pecking order while Eduardo Camavinga is also ahead of him when being used as an interior midfielder.

And with Real Madrid set to sign Jude Bellingham in the summer and there being some interest in Gabri Veiga as well, things could get even more difficult for the 26-year-old former Real Betis ace at the Santiago Bernabeu next season.

The former Arsenal loanee has previously maintained that he prioritises staying at the club. But, with no improvement in his role and no hike in wages, it remains to be seen if Ceballos would be willing to continue as a Real Madrid player beyond the current campaign.

Ceballos’ representatives will likely meet with Real Madrid officials at the end of the season to discuss the next move. For now, though, there is an offer on the table and the midfielder will assess all possible options before deciding.

Real Madrid have officially announced that winger Marco Asensio will be leaving the club as a free agent at the end of the season. The Spaniard was between a contract extension and departure for a very long time, and eventually decided it was best for him to leave.

Asensio joined Madrid eight years ago, as a 20-year-old, and was loaned out to Espanyol during his first season in the top flight, where he scored four goals and gave ten assists across 34 appearances.

He has since been a key member of Real Madrid’s team, often dropping in and out of starting lineups, though. During his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, Asensio has won three UEFA Champions Leagues, four FIFA Club World Cups, three La Ligas, and three European Super Cups.

“Real Madrid fans will never forget their path and their exemplary behaviors during all this time. Madrid is, and will always be, his home,” the farewell announcement said.

Now, rumours suggest that Asensio will heading to Paris to join PSG on a Bosman move.
