Arsenal loanee Dani Ceballos has revealed his transfer plans ahead of his return to Real Madrid this summer. Ceballos is set to depart North London next month after two loan spells. Speaking to Canal Sur Radio, Ceballos accented his desire to either stay in Madrid or join another club permanently.
He said: “The Premier League is a very attractive league. I was lucky to be able to play in it last season and win the FA Cup, and this season has helped me to consolidate myself.
“It is true that I have a contract with Real Madrid for the next two years and I would not like to go on loan to another club again. I am 24 years old; I am a very young player, with a lot of time ahead of me. The truth is that my expectations are clear: to settle in a club, feel important and enjoy football.”
With a new manager entering the fight at Real Madrid following Zinedine Zidane’s sudden exit, Ceballos’ future couldn’t be more up in the air. For Arsenal, midfield depth isn’t a strong suit of Mikel Arteta’s squad, but Ceballos’ recent performances haven’t merited his reported £50,000 weekly wage and permanent stay.
