Real Madrid set Dani Ceballos asking price amid exit links

Real Madrid will reportedly demand €18-20 million to part ways with 27-year-old Spanish international Dani Ceballos this summer.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Dani Ceballos might not be a Real Madrid player beyond the summer transfer window. The Merengues are open to parting ways with the 27-year-old if suitors meet their asking price. And they will demand around €18-20 million to sell the player.

Dani Ceballos and his Real Madrid Travails

Dani Ceballos has endured a frustrating spell at Real Madrid since arriving from Real Betis in a deal worth nearly €17 million in July 2017. Widespread speculation pointed to the 13-cap Spanish international being a top-notch long-term addition to the Real Madrid squad almost seven years ago. But he has barely made his mark at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 27-year-old was in and out of the team in his first two seasons with Real Madrid before joining Arsenal in 2019. He spent two years on loan at the North London club but has not been a regular since returning in 2021. Ceballos has suffered due to the presence of world-class players in the midfield unit.

Luka Modric and Toni Kroos have been ever-present figures in the Real Madrid midfield during his spell with the club. As for the 2023/24 season, Ceballos has been behind Federico Valverde, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and the two veteran midfielders. The Spaniard has thus managed only 505 minutes of game time across 21 appearances thus far this term.

What Next?

It is hardly surprising that widespread reports have claimed that Dani Ceballos might not be a Real Madrid player in the 2024/25 season. He has recently emerged as a target for Atletico Madrid. The Colchoneros were also interested in signing the player in last summer’s transfer window, but a move did not materialise.

Meanwhile, the latest update has revealed Real Madrid’s asking price to part ways with Ceballos. The report by Defensa Central has claimed that the Merengues are open to cashing in on the Spaniard in the summer transfer window if a suitor shells out €18-20 million.

It is unclear if a club will be open to shelling out €18-20 million to secure Ceballos’s services in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, Real Madrid will be happy to keep hold of the 27-year-old Spanish international if a suitor does not pay the required sum.
