Journalist Carlo Pellegatti has suggested that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos could be a convenient target for Milan this summer.
The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Ceballos during the 2019 summer window but he ended up joining Arsenal on a season-long loan, and the Gunners extended that loan for the 2020-21 season, but now there are question marks about his future.
Ceballos made 25 league appearances for Arsenal last season and didn’t manage to score a goal, but racked up three assists playing in a deeper role. With Milan needing midfield reinforcements, the well-known journalist Carlo Pellegatti has put forward the candidacy of Ceballos.
“Today we are not talking about certainties, but about dreams and scenarios. There is a player, and I try to understand if Milan could be interested. The value is not low but there is also Real Madrid who might want to sell. When there is a team that wants to sell a player then you can find the formula, because Carlo Ancelotti has to thin out the squad,” he began (via MilanNews).
“I have been following him since 2015, his name is Dani Ceballos. Player of Betis, I followed him when he won the European championship in Spain with the U19s. He was loaned to Arsenal who have already said that they will not exercise their option to buy.
“Real Madrid have already said that this time they want to sell him. The value is not less than 30 million euros , on the other hand if you want to strengthen the team with some quality players one or two sacrifices on an economic level must be made but again, there can be solutions in terms of payment.
“There may be an option to buy, there may be an obligation to buy that may already be more pleasing to the player. Dani Ceballos is a central player, a player of great quality and a great foot, I don’t understand why he struggled to fit into a team like Arsenal, but on the other hand, the Gunners have not had a happy season. With the eventuality Dani Ceballos, Milan would begin to have a really important midfield.”
It was recently confirmed in an Athletic article that Dani Ceballos, Martin Odegaard and Mat Ryan have returned to their parent clubs after their loan spells came to an end.
