Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos hasn’t made a final decision about his future and would still be considering his options, according to a report published on MARCA. Ceballos is aware of the fact that he would not have a prominent role in the Spanish capital after the signing of Jude Bellingham and he wants to play more minutes than he did last season, club sources told Managing Madrid.

If Ceballos ends up signing a new deal with Real Madrid, Los Blancos would have seven midfielders in the rotation. Furthermore, Carlo Ancelotti has been reluctant to relegate the veterans Kroos and Modric to a reserve role, so Ceballos is probably right when he is questioning his role in Madrid next season.

Still, Ceballos hasn’t received many offers from other clubs, so staying in Real Madrid and hoping to earn more minutes when he’s given the chance to play might be his best shot.
