Real Madrid are considering bringing Dani Ceballos back to the club this summer in a blow to Arsenal’s summer transfer plans.
Arsenal had been hoping to agree another loan for the midfielder, who impressed for the Gunners en route to recent their FA Cup win, but there are rumours Madrid are weighing up their options after last Friday’s Champions League elimination at the hands of Manchester City.
Ceballos did not feature heavily during Zinedine Zidane’s first spell in charge but could be brought back as the Frenchman looks to revitalise an ageing midfield with the ongoing financial impact of Covid-19 ruling out big summer signings.
The Spain international has said previously of his desire to triumph at Real, but is keen for regular playing time as he looks to earn a place at next summer’s European Championships and also the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Zidane is expected to have the final say in pre-season before a decision is made on the player’s future, but senior figures at the Spanish side remain confident he has the ability to be a success at Real.
