Real Madrid find themselves in an interesting position right now in terms of their squad. There are reinforcements needed at the back as well as going forward. But in the middle of the park, Los Blancos are absolutely stacked. So much so that Carlo Ancelotti could have a very difficult time giving ample minutes on the pitch to everyone.
This summer, they have brought in Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler. Brahim Diaz seems to be at his best in the number 10 role as well. And the club already had Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Dani Ceballos, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Fede Valverde.
That is almost too much depth for three or four spots on the pitch, depending on what formation they settle on. Thus, one should not rule out the possibility of a midfielder leaving before the summer transfer window closes.
It was not too long ago that Ceballos put pen to paper on a four-year contract extension. But it looks like there are already doubts over his future in the Spanish capital.
Aston Villa ready €15 million bid for Real Madrid player
As reported by SPORT, Aston Villa plans to present an offer to Real Madrid that would be around €15 million. Unai Emery hopes to convince Ceballos with his project and make him see that he will have playing time and a leading role with the Premier League side.
Ceballos is no stranger to the Premier League, having spent time on loan at Arsenal in the past. Could he head back to England despite signing a contract extension just recently?
Let’s see how things play out for Ceballos. He proved his value to this team with his performances last season, which is why he was handed a new contract. But at the same time, it is hard to see him getting much playing time moving forward.
