Arsenal loanee Dani Ceballos hopes to fulfil his dream of becoming a regular with Real Madrid next season. Ceballos joined Los Blancos on a six-year deal from Real Betis for 18million euros in the summer of 2017, however, he struggled to tie down a regular spot in his first two seasons at the Bernabeu.
The midfielder, who can play in a variety of positions, started just four games during his debut campaign in Madrid before earning a further 13 starting appearances in 2018-19. With his chances set to be limited again this season, Ceballos took it upon himself to secure a loan move away from the Spanish giants.

It appears a warning from Spain boss Roberto Moreno played a big part in his decision to head out on-loan as he looks to ensure he is in the coach’s plans for Euro 2020. So far, his move to north London for the 2019-20 campaign has proven to be a successful one and he is earning plenty of admirers in England.
He has been named in the starting XI on five occasions in the Premier League, featuring a further three times from the bench, and has offered plenty of creativity. Reports have suggested that Arsenal are already considering the possibility of turning his loan switch into a permanent deal next summer.
However, Ceballos has dampened the Gunners’ hopes of acquiring his services long-term by suggesting he wants to be a success with Los Merengues.
Ceballos told Radio Marca: “I knew it was an important year, the coach has doubts and he who doesn’t play doesn’t go [to Euro 2020], so it was a good time to go on loan. “I never thought about going permanently. My goal is to succeed at Real Madrid. I will fight to fulfil my dream.”
The 23-year-old has been named in Spain’s squad for the current international break and will be hoping to feature in the Euro 2020 Qualifiers against Norway and Sweden.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
