Dani Ceballos, a midfielder for Real Madrid, is said to be getting closer to signing a free transfer to Bayern Munich in time for the 2023–24 season. Since signing with Los Blancos in 2017 for €16 million, 26-year-old Ceballos has been a member of the team.
With the Spanish club, he has won one La Liga title and two UEFA Champions League trophies thus far. The 11-cap Spain international is in the final four months of his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu. He is a technical operator with the right foot who is gifted with passing and vision.
He was expected to leave on his own this summer, but he recently made a convincing case for a contract extension. Ceballos has emerged as a crucial team option for Carlo Ancelotti this season, despite only playing 338 minutes last year.
This time around, he has played 1089 minutes across 27 games in all competitions, scoring one goal and providing six assists. As per El Nacional, Bayern Munich has recognized Ceballos as one of their exchange focuses for the impending summer move window.
Julian Nagelsmann, the head coach of the Bavarian team, is looking to sign the Spaniard for a starting position in his team and a contract that is quite lucrative. Ceballos is currently weighing his options after developing into an essential player for Real Madrid’s season.
He has decided against returning to Betis this summer, despite his interest in the Bundesliga giants’ offer. However, Real Madrid is unsure whether to extend Ceballos’ contract because of his exorbitant wage demands. In addition, the major clubs of La Liga are eager to make room for Jude Bellingham.
The Olympic silver medalist has made 101 appearances for Los Blancos in all competitions, scoring six goals and providing nine assists.
Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, declined to answer a question about Nacho Fernandez’s current situation earlier this month. His response to reporters was: “Nacho dissatisfied with his circumstance? I can empathize with him, but I’m not here to cheer up the players.
I’m here to ensure Real Madrid’s victory. I regret to inform you that my primary objective is to satisfy the club. This season, Fernandez, 33, has fallen down the Santiago Bernabeu hierarchy. So far, he has only started eight La Liga games. In total, Fernandez has played 301 games for the defending La Liga champions, scoring 15 goals and providing nine assists.
