Spanish publication MARCA has offered an update on the Real Madrid squad, offering a detailed report on the future of some of the players whose contracts at Santiago Bernabeu are set to expire in the coming future.

Included in that long list is Mariano Diaz. The former Lyon forward has fallen out of favour at Real Madrid and as per the report, he will not be offered any contract extension by the club.

This comes as no surprise as the forward has featured in only 25 minutes of football all season. Even as Real Madrid struggle in finding a reliable alternative for star striker Karim Benzema, it appears Diaz has no prospects in this current squad.

With his current deal expiring at the end of the season, Real Madrid are determined to get rid of the forward in the coming future. As a matter of fact, the club could even look to offload the player in the upcoming January transfer window.

The same goes for Dani Ceballos. Although the former Real Betis starlet has been far more useful than Diaz, he simply has not done enough to earn a new deal at Santiago Bernabeu. Hence, a summer exit could be on the horizon for the midfielder.

Ceballos has earned only two starts in the league this season. He was a useful bench player for Carlo Ancelotti at one point, but his progress was derailed by an unfortunate injury.

Although the Spaniard has returned to full fitness, it appears unlikely that he will be given the nod ahead of players such as Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga.

Youth player Sergio Arribas’ rapid rise to prominence does not help his cause either, while the club continue to harbour hopes of signing Jude Bellingham next summer.

Hence, Ceballos is another Real Madrid player who is in contention to depart Santiago Bernabeu in the near future, with a renewal unlikely to be forthcoming.

    Truly speaking with Ceballos,I think it is a matter of team of weighing player potential thus trying to create space by removing player like him.This guy played a very good role in Madrid having obtained all the accolades of last season.He came as a substitute in most of the time when the team performance was poor and he instilled courage to teammates,like in that game where he was afforded a penalty after being kicked by the defender.He is been given a less time of play whereas he can make a good deal of impact to the Play.

In a major development, journalist Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has decided to sign a new contract with the club and will pen a four-year deal to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 26-year-old midfielder’s current contract with Real Madrid stands to expire at the end of the season. And there had been conflicting reports over whether he would be offered a new deal by the Merengues.

But the Spaniard has managed to turn things around spectacularly in recent weeks, putting up top displays one after the other, helping Real Madrid emerge out of a poor run at the start of the new year.

It has convinced the club to hand him a new contract and it seems like things are moving swiftly on the renewal front for Ceballos.

Indeed, as per the update from Tomas Gonzalez-Martin, Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2027. It will see the midfielder receive an improved salary to the one that he is currently earning.

And Ceballos has decided to sign the deal. The former Real Betis ace has always maintained that he wants to continue at the Bernabeu beyond the current campaign. And the two parties could now be close to shaking hands on a new contract.

Ceballos joined Real Madrid from Real Betis back in 2017, arriving as one of the most talented young midfielders in La Liga. However, he found the going tough initially, thanks to the hegemony of the midfield trio of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro.

The Spaniard spent a couple of seasons on loan at Arsenal before returning to the club in 2021. If not for an injury while away at the Tokyo Olympics, Ceballos could have been sold that year.

Having returned to action in January last year, he has slowly but surely gained importance in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. And he is now set to be rewarded with a new four-year contract by the champions of Spain and Europe.
