Tottenham Linked Midfielder Talks About Departure Rumours: What Does He Offer On The Pitch?

In a recent interview with Onda Cero (translated by Football.London), Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has admitted that he wants to stay at the Spanish capital when he said, “I don’t want them [Real Madrid] to sell me. But I want to enjoy myself and feel important, wherever that may be.

“I have a bit of experience and I believe that next year will be my best year.”

Football.London has also revealed that the 22-year-old was linked with both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in the recent past, but it seems like he has his heart set on staying with the Galacticos this summer. This latest development will be a bitter pill to swallow for Spurs as they look to find an ideal replacement for Christian Eriksen who wants to leave the club before the start of the new campaign.

Ceballos’ Struggles In Spanish Football

Ceballos had to endure a frustrating campaign last season when he failed to put in a run of consistent performances on the pitch. The Sevilla born prospect featured in 34 matches for Los Blancos last term, finding the back of the net on three occasions while providing two assists in all competitions.

The Real Betis youth product has also earned six international caps for the Spanish national side and has scored one goal for them thus far. Ceballos needs to work hard on improving his game if he intends to unlock his true potential. At 22, he still has a lot of time to develop as a player and become a world-class player in his position someday.

What Does The Spaniard Offer On The Field?

Ceballos is an accurate passer of the ball and is not afraid to play a risky pass in the final third to try and open up the opposition defence. He is also a penetrative dribbler with the ball but does not possess enough pace to beat his marker in a 1v1 situation. The Spanish talent is primarily a box to box midfielder who can also operate in the number 10 role or on the left flank if required.

Ceballos Insists On Staying With The Galacticos: Big Blow For Pochettino?

Ceballos’ acquisition would have significantly bolstered Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield options at the new White Hart Lane. However, the player’s desire to stay at Madrid will be a massive blow for the Argentine manager’s chances of landing him this summer.

Spurs would now have to look elsewhere in search of a quality midfielder who could come in and potentially fill Eriksen’s shoes if he departs the North London club in this off-season.
