AC Milan are interested in a fresh move for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos this summer, according to reports.
Real boss Zinedine Zidane is already planning for a big summer revamp at the Bernabeu having taken back the reigns following Santiago Solari’s sacking in March, and Ceballos is one of the players who is likely considered surplus to requirements.
The player himself recently gave potential suitors hope by admitting his future is far from certain.
“Zidane has spoken to me, and he was very clear,” Ceballos told Onda Cero.
“I have accepted his explanations as to what he sees for me next season. However I do have a contract for four more years, and a high release clause.
“When I return I will make a decision. If I do leave, I want to play for a side that where I feel important.
“I want to show that I can play in any team in Europe. I am a young player that wants to succeed, and I cannot have another year of not playing.”
Milan are one of the clubs who have been persistently linked with a move for the Spaniard, who netted a screamer against Italy at the U21 European Championships on Sunday night.
The English media have credited Spurs and West Ham with interest in Ceballos, who made 23 LaLiga appearances last season scoring three times.
