Mauricio Pochettino has personally called Dani Ceballos and convinced the Real Madrid midfielder to join Tottenham this summer.
Real Madrid have gone back to their old and trusted method of buying Galacticos. They have brought in Eden Hazard from Chelsea to spearhead their attack and try to fill in the boots of Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid have also signed Luka Jovic, Ferland Mendy, Rodrygo Goes, Eder Militao. They have also signed Japanese Messi – Takefuso Kubo, who will play for Real Madrid’s Castilla side but may earn promotion to the senior side as well.
Dani Ceballos appears to be on the verge of exiting Los Blancos, where he does not feature as part of Zinedine Zidane’s plans on a regular basis. AS report that Tottenham are drawing ever nearer to securing his services on loan for the coming campaign.
Pochettino had a discussion with the player, in which AS claim he informed Ceballos of how important he will be for Spurs. They report that conversation took place several weeks ago and it appears to be a matter of time before Tottenham get their man. The reason being, the Lilywhites have had a good relationship with Los Blancos since the 2013 transfer of Gareth Bale and there are also suggestions Ceballos could potentially be included in negotiations about potentially taking Christian Eriksen to the Bernabeu.
Dani Ceballos has recently won the U-21 European Championship with the Spanish national side. He was the standout performer of the campaign. His performance has caught the eye of clubs in Italy and Germany, who have started to enquire about the midfielder. But the strongest interest has come from England, and it seems Spurs could have the best chance of landing him.
Real Madrid reportedly also want to include a buy-back option in any deal to sell Ceballos and Spurs would apparently not be opposed to the idea. Whoever signs him will be bagging a very talented prospect, that’s for sure.
