The Utrera-born player is continuously linked to the return to Betis, and Cordon turned to rumors. “We all know how good the Ceballos player is, we know his past. So he is an exciting player,” Cordon told journalists.
Real Betis in chase of Dani Ceballos
Real Betis’ new sporting director Antonio Cordon is already preparing for the summer transfer window ahead of what will be an outstanding season for the Andalusian club. His first decision was not to renew defender Antonio Barragán’s contract. So he intimately reassured Los Verdiblancos that they would be interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos. The Utrera-born player is continuously linked to the return to Betis, and Cordon turned to rumors. “We all know how good the Ceballos player is, we know his past. So he is an exciting player,” Cordon told journalists. “In the future, we will see on our staff, our squad and how we will play. Boss Manuel Pellegrini has a lot of ideas.”
Ceballos is waiting to see what Betis has put on the table
“He is already here, and no one will forget his qualities and attributes,” he said of Ceballos. “He’s a player, and any team will be interested.” Betis have been in contact with the 23-year-old throughout the season. Still, Ceballos has also had the opportunity to extend his loan spell at Arsenal and another big Premier League club where he will receive a pay raise. However, the player is waiting to see what Betis has put on the table before making a decision. The move to Sevilla depends on whether Pellegrini sees him as an essential part of his plans for the next term. Betis’ ability to fund the deal following the financial impact of COVID-19 will also play a role as LaLiga imposes financial constraints on clubs in the upcoming post-crisis season.
Real will also have to be willing to let the player move. But Betis are already looking at other potential loan deals from Los Blancos if the agreement with Ceballos does not work out.
