Manchester City ponder over signing a generational talent from Real Madrid who does not get along with Zinedine Zidane
Pep Guardiola‘s spending spree at Manchester City continued this summer transfer market as the Catalan coach signed Ruben Dias, Nathan Ake, and Ferran Torres during the transfer window. Guardiola’s tenure at the Etihad Stadium has now come under criticism as the former Bayern Munich coach has failed to deliver success in the Champions League after spending over a billion euros on just signings.
Having said that, the Spanish coach is now considering adding a touch of creativity in his midfield after the sale of David Silva. Although Guardiola has Phil Foden at his disposal and has also labeled the English midfielder as the brightest talent he has ever worked with. The former Bayern Munich manager is on the lookout for a more experienced midfielder than Foden.
Reports now state that Dani Ceballos of Real Madrid has been added to the summer transfer agenda of 2021. The current Arsenal superstar is aware that his future at Real is bleak given the fact that Zinedine Zidane prefers to have Federico Valverde and Martin Odegaard rather than the former Real Betis man.
Ceballos was rumoured to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer. However, the player communicated his desire for a loan extension at the Emirates Stadium in order to secure game-time that would help him secure a spot in the Spanish national team for the 2021 Euro.
The 24-year-old’s loan deal is set to expire next summer and as mentioned before, the Spaniard would not want to return to Real Madrid. Los Blancos will most likely sign Eduardo Camavinga as well in the summer which will then eliminate all hopes of game-time for Dani Ceballos.
A move to Manchester City would benefit all the parties involved as well. Dani Ceballos could be assured an important role with the Sky Blues, meanwhile, Real could sell the player for a decent figure given his thorough adaptation to the Premier League and recent success.
A move to the Etihad Stadium will certainly be an upgrade for the Spanish midfielder, however, it would not go down well amongst the Gunners and their supporters since the midfielder has grown into a popular figure in just two seasons.
