A number of Premier League clubs like Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs have been linked with Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos during the past couple of weeks but it looks like the midfielder is heading to Mauricio Pochettino’s camp.
Ceballos joined Real Madrid back in 2017 from Real Betis but the player has turned out to be a big failure at the Bernabeu and now reports are claiming that Real are willing to let him leave for a transfer fee of around £45 million.
Recently, Dani Ceballos had claimed that his future at Madrid is still uncertain but he wishes to join a club where he can play regular football.
“The truth is nothing is clear about my future. I wish I knew! I’m enjoying the tournament and I’m not going to talk about whether I’ll stay (at Real Madrid) or not. I’ve got two weeks to be with my family and make the right choice for me,” Ceballos told the media.
“My priority is to play. You’ve seen how much I’ve smiled, from ear to ear, this week. (Playing) is what makes me the happiest.
“Yes, the most important thing in life is to be happy and that can only happen by playing 40 games a year.
“My personal goal for next season is to play 40 games and to be comfortable at all times. Wherever it is doesn’t matter, but it has to be a place where I can feel valued.”
And now AS are reporting that “Tottenham looks like it will finally be Ceballos’ destination this summer. Pochettino has good guilt.
“More specifically, the conversation that the Argentine coach had with the Andalusian midfielder a few weeks ago. In it, the coach of the Spurs told him the importance he would have in the team and explained the bases of his team’s project for next season.”
AC Milan were also keeping tabs on Dani Ceballos but the Serie A giants along with Arsenal were not considered by the midfielder since he wants to play in the Champions League next season.
So naturally, there was a battle between Spurs and Liverpool to sign him.
And it looks like Dani Ceballos has chosen to play for the Lilywhites since he would be getting guaranteed game time for the 2019-20 season under Mauricio Pochettino.
