Real Madrid are focusing on the second leg of the Champions League semi-final against Man City, but they are also not neglecting to extend the contracts of players, especially those who expire at the end of this season.
After the agreements reached with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, Real are also getting closer to Marco Asensio, but the case of Dani Ceballos has not yet found a common voice.
With Asensio, first of all, the fans’ calls for a renewal and then the Real Board of Directors also understand the value that he contributes every time he plays (currently the player with the best scorer/match performance of Real Madrid). ).
Real BLD has made a second offer with the desire to continue collaborating with Asensio. That is also the wish of Real’s third best La Liga scorer (9 goals behind Benzema 17 and Vinicius 10). Asensio himself is also pursued by many clubs, the latest being Aston Villa, but his first priority is to stay at the Bernabeu.
The situation is not going well for Dani Ceballos. Real made their first offer three weeks ago, but Ceballos was not satisfied and hoped for more. Ceballos is also currently receiving interest from Betis (but taxes are an issue) and a few words from Italy (where there is a better tax advantage), as well as Atletico Madrid are closely monitoring the situation.
Accordingly, the extension with Ceballos is especially complicated, especially when Real are considering bringing in Bellingham, with whom they have reached a personal agreement and are now just waiting for Dortmund’s nod. In fact, Ceballos is also the last player (not counting Mariano) that Real asked to renew, so if there is no new commitment to be signed, it is not too surprising.
