Real Madrid have so far not come out to claim Tottenham’s Chritian Eriksen but the Spanish giants have labelled and priced one of their own: Dani Ceballos. Ceballos is not really one of Madrid’s own as the player had only joined the all-whites in 2017 from Real Betis. Selling him now to Tottenham will be a sound bit of business as they will more than double their investment.

Chances hard to come by at Madrid for Dani Ceballos
Dani Ceballos has been at the centre of a popular spat with Zinedine Zidane. It’s been widely reported that since Zidane’s return to the Bernabeu, Ceballos approached the manager about playing time issues. Zidane didn’t inspire any confidence in the 22 year midfielder, who thinks he can play in any midfield across Europe. So they both agreed to part ways before the start of the new season.
The only remaining problem is that Ceballos has a contract with Madrid until 2023. Julien Lopetegui looked to embed the player in his plans but was sacked before Ceballos could establish himself as a regular. Regardless, Ceballos remains highly rated in Spain and elsewhere. Else here refers to Tottenham.
Tottenham don’t want him clubbed into the Eriksen transfer
The London club doesn’t want the uncertainty around the future of their Danish playmaker Eriksen to cloud their own transfer plans. As such, they have enquired with Real Madrid for Ceballos and have now received a response. A Dani Ceballos transfer to Spurs will cost £45 million according to AS.
A steep price for a 22 year old who only played 1245 La Liga minutes for the Los Blancos last season. Whether Tottenham should prioritize other players is another question. But do you think a young player like Dani Ceballos warrants such a price tag? We didn’t think so either! COYS!
