Dani Ceballos’ situation at Real Madrid has taken a major u-turn in recent weeks. The former loanee at Arsenal is gradually paving a way towards earning a permanent spot in the team with the Galacticos.

According to Sergio Santos of Diario AS, the Spanish midfielder is set to receive more minutes to prove himself from the boss Carlo Ancelotti, who has always trusted him and publicly praised him in January.

Ceballos has showcased great professionalism even when he was not an integral part of the team dynamics. He never complained and reportedly put in a lot of extra effort to train at home, to maintain rhythm and sharpness despite not playing.

This is how the Spaniard has been day-to-day, and has given his all in training on the pitch as well. And of course, Ancelotti is happy with the performances Ceballos has shown in the recent times where he has played.

After plenty of speculation that he will be sold, there is now supposedly a lot of chatter within the club contemplating that keeping him would be a good decision.

The 25-year-old is earning the trust of those at the club and many believe it is best to offer him a new contract.

Ancelotti’s unwavering backing is especially vital, as he sees Ceballos as a part of his squad next season. He has only started one game so far this season, but that can soon change.

Real Madrid had as many as five players representing them at the Copa America 2024 in the USA, with four of them being in the Brazil national team while another playing for Uruguay.

While Dani Carvajal enjoyed success with his national team at the Euro 2024, the story was much different for his Real Madrid teammates at the Copa America.

Indeed, it was a tournament to forget for the Brazilian contingent of Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo Goes, Eder Militao, and Endrick as they failed to go past the quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, Federico Valverde’s Uruguay finished with the bronze medal in the tournament seeing off Canada in the third-place playoffs via penalties after failing to defeat Colombia in the semi-finals.

Here’s how the five Real Madrid stars fared for their respective nations at the Copa America in the USA.


Vinicius Jr.: 6/10

After enjoying an excellent season with Real Madrid, Vinicius was handed the responsibility of leading Brazil at the Copa America, especially with Neymar unavailable.

Kicking off with a dull showing against Costa Rica but showed up against Paraguay, scoring a fine brace to help his team to their only win of the tournament. A booking in the game against Colombia meant he sat out of the quarterfinal loss to Uruguay due to suspension.

Rodrygo: 5/10

An underwhelming showing from the Real Madrid forward who was handed the No. 10 shirt for the Copa America. Deployed as a centre-forward for most of his appearances at the tournament, Rodrygo hardly appeared like a threat in attack.

Eder Militao: 5/10

It was a mixed bag for Eder Militao at the Copa America as there were some indications of him returning to his best while he was also caught out at times and his passing from the back was sloppy. Guilty of missing his penalty in the shootout loss to Uruguay in the quarterfinal.

Endrick: 4/10

Bestowed the No. 9 shirt at the biggest tournament of his career so far at the age of just 17, Endrick failed to step up for Brazil.

A late substitute in each of the three group games, Endrick started in the quarterfinal against Uruguay in Vinicius’ absence but looked overawed by the occasion and failed to make any sort of impact.


Federico Valverde: 7/10

One of the stars of the show for Uruguay in their third-place run at the Copa America, Valverde was a consistent performer in midfield for La Celeste, putting in all-round solid displays while also catching the eye with his set-piece delivery.

The Real Madrid midfielder even scored a goal in the group game against Bolivia and dispatched his penalty in the shootout win against Canada in the third-place playoff.
