Real Madrid are bound to go through a major overhaul in their roster in the summer, as they’ve already secured the signings of Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, and Ferland Mendy and aren’t likely to be satisfied yet.
Zinedine Zidane has not hesitated to take a stand in front of the team’s officials and let them know about all of the superstars he’s bound to get for his reinforced Real Madrid, and that’s something that will definitely open the door for several players to leave the club in the summer, especially youngsters.
A guy that’s on that uncomfortable position is Dani Ceballos, who was promised a lot of playing time with the team but was one of their scapegoats following one of the worst seasons in modern Madrid history.
Ceballos has been drawing a lot of hate from some Madrid supporters that believe he’s not ready to make an impact with the 13 times
UCL Champions yet, and that he’d be better off elsewhere working on his game, and he lost a lot of ground amid Zidane’s appointment:
“I started well under (Julen) Lopetegui, but once he was fired, I, unfortunately, became secondary. I’m not going to say what was said regarding my talk with Zidane but what I can say is that he was clear with me and once the Euro U21 is over, I will decide my future. My aim is to play wherever I go and prove that I can compete in any team in Europe. I hope to succeed because nothing is going to defeat me,” Ceballos told Onda Cero Radio.
The midfielder has reportedly been scouted by Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham ever since he was playing for Real Betis, but he claims he’s not going to make a decision regarding his future until, at least, the end of the European U-21 Championship, where he’ll play a major part in Spain’s team.
