Angel Haro hints at ruling out Real Betis move for Dani Ceballos

Real Betis president Angel Haro has essentially ruled out re-signing 27-year-old Real Madrid outcast Dani Ceballos this summer.

As quoted by Spanish outlet AS, Angelo Haro commented on the possibility of bringing Dani Ceballos back to Real Betis in the summer transfer window. However, the Andalusian club’s president ruled out re-signing the 27-year-old Real Madrid outcast. He suggested that the Verdiblancos do not have the “circumstances” to bring him back to the Benito Villamarin Stadium.

Angelo Haro said, “The probability of him coming to Betis is remote. The circumstances do not exist for him to be able to arrive here.”

Dani Ceballos has endured a frustrating career since joining Real Madrid from Real Betis in July 2017. The Spaniard has won multiple trophies during his spell with Los Blancos. However, game time has come at a premium for him due to the presence of many world-class midfielders in the Real Madrid squad.

Ceballos played second-fiddle to Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Casemiro in the first part of his spell with Real Madrid. Since returning from his loan stint with Arsenal, the 27-year-old has also been behind Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde, dropping to the bottom of the pecking order.

The Spanish midfielder turned out 27 times across all competitions in the 2023/24 season, chipping in with one goal and two assists. However, he managed only 864 minutes of game time, with his frustration increasing. So, it is hardly surprising that widespread reports have linked Ceballos with a potential departure in the summer transfer window.

Recent reports have linked Dani Ceballos with clubs like Newcastle United, Real Betis, and Atletico Madrid. However, Real Betis will unlikely secure the services of the 27-year-old Spanish midfielder in the summer transfer window after the comments by Angel Haro.

Ceballos could have been a top-notch addition to the Real Betis midfield unit, considering Guido Rodriguez has departed from the Benito Villamarin Stadium as a free agent. In addition, Nabil Fekir faces an uncertain future at the Andalusia club. So, the Real Madrid outcast could have become a two-pronged solution for Los Verdiblancos. However, a fairytale return is not on the cards.
