If nothing unexpected happens, Dani Ceballos will remain a Real Madrid player for another season. According to Sergio Santos, a journalist RelevoThe royals decided that the midfielder will be part of the team for the next season.
Carlo Ancelotti trusts him, as the end of last season showed. The 26-year-old has entered the field in all Champions League matches from the quarter-finals to the final. After recovering from his injury, he made regular appearances on the pitch, as long as he was healthy. In the hierarchy of midfielders, he overtook, among others, Isco, who is no longer in the club.
The only situation that could change the 26-year-old’s immediate future is an offer he cannot refuse. This is what Real received from Manchester United in the Casemiro case. Otherwise, Ceballos will stay in Real. It will be extremely difficult for him to play, because despite the departure of Casemiro and Isco, he has to compete with Kroos, Modric, Camavinga, Tchouaméni and Valverde.
If Dani ultimately stays, his representatives will meet with Real Madrid officials in the coming weeks to discuss a possible contract extension. The current contract expires at the end of the current season, as in the case of Kroos or Modricia contracts.
