I wonder where Dani Ceballos fits in to an already crowded Real Madrid midfield, but he ticks two boxes: extremely talented, hates Barca.- Phil Schoen (@PhilSchoen) June 28, 2017
FIrst off, he wants assurance that he will not be loaned out for next season, and will instead be part of the squad that looks to retain La Liga and the Champions League.
Secondly, with the wonderkid naturally concerned about the amount of game-time he would receive in the Spanish capital, he has reportedly told the club that they need to sell James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata this summer in order for him to sign on the dotted line.
The duo have been heavily linked with moves away, but remain Real players at the time of writing.
