Real Madrid want €12-15 million for midfielder, no ‘serious offers’ yet
Dani Ceballos continues to stare at an uncertain future at Real Madrid.
The Spanish midfielder has endured a difficult five-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu, two of which he spent away on loan at Arsenal. An exit last summer seemed to be on the cards but an unfortunate injury at the Tokyo Olympics ended any hopes of a move away.
Ceballos enjoyed some minutes towards the end of the season under Carlo Ancelotti. However, with Los Blancos signing Aurelien Tchouameni this summer, the former Real Betis ace could fall further down the pecking order.
The 25-year-old wants to play regularly this season with the World Cup coming up. However, that might not be possible at the home of the reigning Spanish and European champions.
According to a report from Diario AS, Real Madrid would be open to selling Ceballos this summer, especially as he is entering the final year of his contract. The Merengues are seeking a transfer fee of €12-15 million for the midfielder.
However, the report adds that there are no ‘serious offers’ on the table for Ceballos, which has put him in a difficult situation. A move to former club Real Betis has been talked about, but Los Verdiblancos are yet to make any concrete approach.
So, as things stand, Ceballos might end up staying put at the Santiago Bernabeu beyond the summer. It is suggested that the 25-year-old will hold discussions with Ancelotti over his situation, with the manager open to offering him more minutes.
There is a possibility that Real Madrid might offer the Spaniard a new contract, and he is ready to study the proposal before deciding on his future.
As things stand, though, Ceballos does not have any concrete offers to leave and it remains to be seen if his situation changes in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid are considering terminating the contract of €115 million flop – report
Eden Hazard is one of the Real Madrid players who have vowed to stay at Santiago Bernabeu until the end of his contract. His current deal at the club expires in 2024.
Even though the Real Madrid star has been courted by several MLS and even the Saudi Arabian clubs, the forward has shown no desire to leave Bernabeu just yet. He wants to stay at the club even though Los Blancos are ready to sanction his sale this summer.
In the midst of this drama, a fresh report from Alfredo Matilla suggests Real Madrid are now considering terminating the contract of Eden Hazard.
This comes shortly after a report which claimed that a Real Madrid player who is not out of contract this summer, may shockingly leave the club this summer. Ferland Mendy was a potential candidate, but it appears Hazard has not been ruled out either.
The Belgian international has offered very little since joining from Chelsea in 2019 for a record-breaking €115 million fee. His spell at the Bernabeu has been marred by injuries, while the player has also struggled to impress when given the opportunities.
Inside the Real Madrid dressing room, there is both grief and resentment towards Belgian, who has remained steadfast in his decision to stay at the club. He has a good standing in the team due to his professionalism, but the Real Madrid bosses are determined to get rid of him this summer.
Hazard, after all, is the highest-paid player in the squad and his departure could open up a chunk of the space in the salary mass. But it must be noted that Real Madrid would have to spend a fortune to terminate Hazard’s contract.
Hence, it will be interesting to see whether or not Los Blancos end up splashing the cash in order to get Hazard out of their books this coming summer.
