Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos has said he’s “not ruling out” a permanent move to the Premier League, with the Spaniard saying he accepts that he will not get the game time he needs at Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old is keen on ensuring he is playing on a regular basis so he can be in contention for Spain ahead of Euro 2021 next year, and when asked about his future plans, he said he is considering all options.
“I’m not closing the door on any club. La Liga sounds good to me, but I’m also happy at Arsenal and I have to respect them. I’m not ruling out staying in the Premier League.”
“I’m the master of my own future next year. “Next year I want to play, and I’ll hardly be able to do it at Real Madrid.”
Real were reportedly looking for €40m (£36m) to sell Ceballos earlier in the season, and it remains to be seen whether the La Liga club have lowered their valuation due to the current financial climate.
In addition, it will be interesting to see whether Arsenal actually want to sign the player on a permanent basis. The midfielder was brought in by former manager Unai Emery, and while current head coach Mikel Arteta has picked him pretty regularly, he may well be looking to use his limited transfer funds on other areas of the pitch.
