Arsenal playmaker make a decision over his future

Arsenal playmaker and loanee Dani Ceballos has been discussing his future at parent club Real Madrid and appeared to hint at being open to a come back to former club Real Betis. The Spanish under-21 star arrived at Emirates last summer from Real Madrid with Unai Emery, a huge fan of the footballer.

However, an injury curtailed his impact at the London club, and he then had to wait patiently to get a chance under new manager Mikel Arteta. He did that and speaking to Canal Surthis week, he admitted tough times in Arsenal but felt he had turned a corner before the lockdown.

“The year started with great enthusiasm, a new challenge, in a great club like Arsenal, with Unai Emery, who gave me a lot of confidence. Then when I had the opportunity, I made clear my intentions to succeed at Arsenal.”

Undoubtedly, Ceballos’ was in Mikel Arteta’s good books before football was postponed. But next campaign it stays to be seen where Ceballos might be playing. Gunners can sign Dani for £36m this summer, with the midfield maestro not wanted by current Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.

The Spanish midfielder wants to be playing regularly to force his way into Spain squads for both the postponed Olympic Games and Euro 2020. Ceballos was asked whether a come back to Betis would be an option and it appears the 23-year-old midfielder would be open to that move.

However, such a fee would need to drop amid the current situation for Gunners to have any opportuinty of securing his services. But even if they could, any approach from Betis would seemingly be looked upon more favourable for this Verdiblanco.
