At the forefront of Real Madrid’s flawless start to the season has been Federico Valverde, who is unanimously recognised as the club’s most in-form player so far.

However, his incredible influence stems beyond the Santiago Bernabeu, as he won the La Liga Player of the Month for the month of September. The Uruguayan international has reflected on his excellent performances up until this point of the campaign.

I think I feel good in every way, both emotionally and physically. I’m working hard so that everything goes well together with my teammates”, he said, as quoted by MARCA.

With Carlo Ancelotti setting the 24-year-old a target of reaching ten goals this term, he is already halfway there with four in the league and the Champions League.

Touching on his impressive run in front of goals, Valverde commented, “I always work to be physically fit, although goals are very rare for me. In the goal against Mallorca, my great power and my good shot in the same play. Luckily the ball went in and the whole team celebrated.”

The versatile operator, who operates with some of the best midfielders in the world, gave them their props for the special qualities they bring on the pitch.

Each one of the Madrid players who is in the centre of the field has unique qualities. Toni Kroos can provide calm with the ball, Luka gives us that magic, I energy and speed, and Tchouameni is pure defence.”

Named as Mahou’s Five Star Player for the month of September, the Champions League winner was grateful to the Madridistas for their votes towards his win.

“I am very grateful that they have voted and it is a real pleasure to receive this award from them. Hopefully we can continue winning together.”

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.
