Real Madrid Transfer News: Dani Ceballos responds to Atletico Madrid’s offer

Real Madrid Transfer News: The Athletic claims that Dani Ceballos turned down an inquiry from Atletico Madrid during the current international break. The Spanish midfielder has made it plain that he does not want to leave Real Madrid over the summer.

When Dani Ceballos signed with Real Madrid, he was already considered one of the best young midfielders in his native Colombia. The 26-year-old had his pick of many major clubs but ultimately signed with Real Madrid. His time with Los Blancos hasn’t gone well since he’s been used mostly as a substitute. Not surprisingly, given the performances of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

The Spanish international also played for Arsenal on loan for two seasons. Yet since coming back to Real Madrid, Ceballos has steadily risen in stature and made some useful contributions this season. In 32 games played, he has contributed to seven goals and one assist. Nonetheless, he will be a free agent in the summer and may leave Real Madrid.

Ceballos has not yet signed a contract with Real Madrid, therefore he is technically a free agent. Nonetheless, it has been reported that the current La Liga winners are interested in signing him to a new contract. Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid has been interested in the Spanish international.

In preparation for the summer transfer window, the Colchoneros are looking to bolster their midfield. This is due to Saul Niguez’s declining standing at the Civitas Metropolitano during the last few years. However, Thomas Lemar might be leaving Atletico Madrid soon.

This makes Ceballos an attractive option for Atletico Madrid. Moreover, Los Rojiblancos recently made contact with the Spaniard’s group when they were on international break. The player, though, has turned down their offer and plans to stay with Real Madrid much into the summer transfer deadline.

Instead of joining Atletico Madrid, the 26-year-old is holding out for a new deal with Real Madrid. So, the player’s and Los Blancos’ fortunes have improved dramatically. In the next months, it will be exciting to watch whether the Spanish midfielder stays with Real Madrid.
