Ceballos ‘relaxed’ on future


Real Betis star Dani Ceballos is ‘relaxed’ about his future this summer amid strong transfer speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

The front page of Friday’s Marca states Barcelona are considering a late offer for the 20-year-old, who has starred at this summer’s European Under 21 Championships, but Los Blancos are still in the driving seat.

However, the Seville-native feels his future is still with Betis and any change to that can only be discussed after Friday’s final.

“I feel relaxed about the reports,” Ceballos told AS.

“My aim is to beat Germany and when the tournament is over, I’ll sit down with my agents and we’ll look at the offers on the table.


“Right now, my future is with Betis. I have three years left on my contract, and I’m relaxed.

“At the end of the day, if the big clubs are interested in you, it’s because you’re doing well. It’s really nice to be talked about in that way.”

Ceballos reportedly has a €15m release clause at Estadio Benito Villamarin, but could be loaned back to the club for a season should Madrid make a move for the midfielder.
