Carrusel Deportivo has revealed that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos is the most likely player to leave the team this summer. In that regard, his former club, Real Betis, appear to be his probable next destination. 

At 27 years old, Ceballos is inclined to depart, and Real Madrid are aware of his intentions. For now, discussions between Ceballos and Real Madrid are expected to continue to determine how the exit can be arranged this summer.

The main challenge lies in the fact that Real Madrid renewed Ceballos’ contract last summer, which included a pay raise. Because of this, they are hesitant to let him go for a low transfer fee. 

A bitter-sweet moment for Real Madrid

While Ceballos’ desire to leave is understandable, given his personal aspirations, Real Madrid’s reluctance to let him go also makes sense, especially considering the recent departure of Toni Kroos. 

Losing another midfielder could be a setback for the team. Furthermore, if Jude Bellingham is required to play a deeper role, the team’s overall dynamics could be affected.

Interestingly, Carlo Ancelotti and his coaching staff had viewed Ceballos as a crucial player for the future, particularly in the period following the careers of Kroos and Luka Modric. This is because Ceballos’ playing style fits well with the team’s vision for the future. 

Real Madrid will not sign a replacement

If Ceballos decides not to stay, Real Madrid have made it clear that they do not plan to sign a new midfielder, even though they have lost Kroos. 

Instead, they will look to promote players from Real Madrid Castilla. For that, the names of Mario Martin and Nico Paz have been brought up.

In conclusion, Ceballos’ potential departure from Real Madrid this summer is a complex issue involving personal aspirations, contract details, and team strategy. 

While his exit could create challenges for Real Madrid, the club seem prepared to look within its ranks for solutions, ensuring that the team remains competitive in the coming seasons.

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.
