Real Madrid, Real Betis Talks Stall After Deadlock On Fee For Ceballos Transfer
Real Madrid are yet to agree a transfer fee with Spanish side Real Betis over the transfer of midfielder Dani Ceballos, according to reports.
Ceballos, 20, is one of the best emerging talents in Spain and Los Blancos are keen to get him ahead of their arch rivals Barcelona this summer.
Having broken into the first team at Betis two seasons ago, Ceballos was one of the key players for the Spanish club in La Liga last season. He raked an impressive 30 league appearances and was primarily deployed as a central midfielder.
According to Spanish media outlet AS, Los Blancos are ready to pay 16 million euros for the youngster but in two installments (eight at the beginning and the remaining eight million after six months). However, Real Betis want all the transfer fee to be paid up front.
But Real Madrid’s stance is that they will be paying more than 15-million-euro buy-out clause and are looking to make the fee payment in two windows.
However, the report also claims that the deal will not be falling into any danger as Real also have the option to activate his buy out clause and get Ceballos to Santiago Bernabeu. The Spaniard has already agreed personal terms with European champions and has completed his medical to make a move once the fee is agreed. The 20-year-old is expected to be unveiled on 20 July ahead of their pre-season US tour.
One For The Future
Dani is definitely one of the brightest talents in Spain and the club are set to spend big on him to ensure he swaps his club over the weekend.
Real Madrid are clearly moving with a strategy this summer as they could spend their second summer window without signing a Galactico. Since Zidane took over the reigns at Bernabeu last season, the club has been very calculative over their signings.
Los Blancos are currently spending big to get bright youngsters to replace some of their stars in the future. Cellabos will be an ideal replacement for Modric, who is on the wrong side of 30s in the upcoming years.
