Quique Setien will look to bring in new players in the squad.
Barcelona has to make some significant changes in their squad in the summer transfer window. They have to find an apt Right Back and also a forward to replace the ageing Luis Suarez. Moreover, Barcelona is also looking to bring in a new midfielder. With, Sergio Busquets ageing, Frenkie De Jong may play as the CDM, with Arthur and a new player beside him.
According to reports from Diario Gol, Setien is looking to bring in former Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos. Ceballos is currently at a loan in Arsenal. A few months back, he has even indicated his interest to move in there permanently, if he gets adequate playtime.
Dani Ceballos is a very likely Option
Zinedine Zidane may not be picking Dani Ceballos anytime soon in his lineup. The emergence of youth talent Federico Valverde has squashed Ceballos’ possibility of making his way back to the Los Blancos. Real Madrid is looking to sign an attacking midfielder, and Donny van de Beek is the possible option. It signifies a possible end to Ceballos’ Real Madrid career.
Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are still performing very well for the Los Blancos. Real Madrid still has a good back up to these players on the bench. So, Ceballos still may not get a chance in Zidane’s playing XI even if he continues to play well in Arsenal. Having said that Real Madrid would not sell him for any less amount to FC Barcelona.
Arsenal Coach Mikel Arteta may buy Ceballos looking at his potential. The Spanish midfielder may cost around 40 million euros for Arsenal. But a direct move from Real Madrid to Barcelona is highly unlikely.
