Dani Ceballos has spent the past two seasons on loan at Arsenal, but the Real Madrid midfielder is fed up with being a lone ranger and will not sign another short-term agreement until 2021.
The Spain international has a contract at Santiago Bernabeu that runs through the summer of 2023, and he is eager to add to his 53 appearances for the Blancos.
Ceballos’ most recent appearance was in April 2019, when he joined Premier League heavyweights Arsenal at Emirates Stadium in quest of the regular playing time he seeks.
Dani Ceballos Words:
“The Premier Competition is a very appealing league, and I was blessed to be able to play in its last season and win the FA Cup, and this second season has enabled me to solidify myself,” Ceballos told Canal Sur Radio on his plans.
“I’m extremely glad because I’ve learned a lot. I’ve grown as a player, and I believe that even though my chapter did not end with the championship. I’m extremely delighted with the experience. I indeed have a two-year deal with Real Madrid. And I would prefer not to go on loan to another team.
With my previous two years of experience, I am a player who requires a sense of importance; I would like to begin next year in the beginning, feeling important yet settling down. As a result, knowing what you want to do in the future is critical. I believe that a player reaches his fullest potential when he is entirely satisfied. To do so, he must be entirely focused on his club.
I am 24 years old, a very young player with a lot of time ahead of me. The fact is that my expectations are simple: to settle into a club, to feel significant, and to enjoy football.”
Ceballos returns to Madrid amid a summer of transition, with Zinedine Zidane has already stepped down as manager.
A new beginning might provide a fresh start for individuals who have been on the outside looking in. They include players like Ceballos and fellow Arsenal loanee Martin Odegaard.
Various landing locations have already been suggested for Ceballos if he decides to leave the Bernabeu.
One of them has been linked with a return to Real Betis for a player who established his name with the Andalusian club.
