With Real Madrid’s season officially over, some players at the club face an uncertain future ahead of next season.

Among them is Dani Ceballos, whose continuity at the Santiago Bernabeu next season is presently up in the air.

Despite putting out solid performances in 2022/2023, he struggled with limited playing time this season, falling behind Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Eduardo Camavinga, Jude Bellingham, and Federico Valverde in the midfield pecking order.

Real Madrid will listen to offers for Ceballos

Now, according to Guillermo Rai from The Athletic, Dani Ceballos has expressed dissatisfaction about his lack of playing time this season, and Real Madrid are open to considering offers for him this summer.

The club is not trying to “abandon” him in spite of this, especially considering Toni Kroos’ recent retirement.

Real Madrid value having depth and experience in their squad after losing a vital cog in Kroos, and Ceballos, with his passing qualities and poise on the ball, fits into this plan.

Another aspect that strengthens Ceballos’ chances of staying put is financial considerations.

Indeed, there are not many Spanish teams that can match Ceballos’s wage at Real Madrid, which reduces his choices for a domestic transfer.

AC Milan one of the clubs interested

While Real Madrid are only looking for a permanent transfer for Ceballos, reports have argued that AC Milan are interested in acquiring the Spanish midfielder on a temporary loan acquisition.

AC Milan considers Ceballos to be a promising midfielder who could elevate the quality in their ranks.

Moreover, Real Madrid and Milan have collaborated on several projects together in the past, including the sale of Theo Hernandez and the loan agreements for Alex Jimenez and Brahim Diaz.

As such, they may be tempted to pursue Ceballos once more but Real Madrid are unlikely to let him depart on a loan deal and are interested in pocketing at least €10 million from the midfielder.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
