European Champions Real Madrid are looking to complete a deal for the highly-rated Real Betis star Dani Ceballos today, according to Spanish publication AS.
The La Liga giants are set to pay more than £13m buy-out clause that he has in his contract in order to maintain a good relationship between the club and the midfielder’s current club Real Betis, according to reports AS.
Talks have been ongoing between the La Liga giants and Ceballos’ representatives but as reported by the Spanish source, Real Madrid’s arch rivals Barcelona interest in him have made things a bit more complicated for the Los Blancos.
Also reported by AS, if Madrid are to secure a deal for the midfielder, who made 30 appearances in La Liga last season for Betis, they plan to take the 20-year-old on their pre-season of USA, where they will then decide whether or not to allow the player to leave on loan.
If Madrid do end up getting this one across the line, the future will definitely be looking bright for Zinedine Zidane’s side.
