After Real Madrid’s victory against Atletico Madrid (3-1 ap), Thursday evening in the quarter-finals of the King’s Cup, Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the future of a player at the end of the contract.
Little used by Real Madrid since the start of the 2022-2023 season, Dani Ceballos was not established yesterday against Atletico Madrid (3-1 aet), at Santiago-Bernabeu, on behalf of the quarter-finals of the King’s Cup. This did not prevent the Spanish midfielder from being decisive in the victory of the Merengue of Carlo Ancelotti, after coming into play in place of Ferland Mendy at the end of the first period. During extra time, the 26-year-old delivered an assist on Casa Blanca’s third goal, signed Vinicius Junior.
“He brings a lot”
After the meeting, the Italian coach spoke about the situation of the former resident of Betis Sevilla, whose contract with Real Madrid ends next June. Asked to say if his number 19 will remain in his squad at the end of the 2022-2023 season, the former manager of Paris Saint-Germain kicked into touch. “For the success of a club, it is important that the club takes care of the club, that the coach trains and the players play. I’m not talking about that. The club knows very well what I think of it. He brings a lot.”
Visibly eager to keep it, the Transalpin returned the ball to its leaders on this file which has not yet delivered its verdict. Bought in the summer of 2017 for a check for 16.50 million euros, Dani Ceballos has since played 91 games in all competitions with Real Madrid, for 6 goals. Since the start of the 2022-2023 season, the native of Utrera has taken part in 17 games and found the net once, for only five starts.
