Spanish Report Claims Real Madrid Are Prepared to Offload Fringe Star to Liverpool

?Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to sanction the move of Dani Ceballos to Liverpool this summer, but the Spanish giants are also said to be keeping their options open should other clubs come calling for the midfielder. 

The Reds were said to be interested in luring the 21-year-old to Anfield in January on a loan deal given his lack of game time at the Bernabeu. However, the move was subsequently blocked which has led to increased speculation that Ceballos could be on his way out in the summer. 


With just five starting appearances and 11 from the bench, Ceballos is primed to seek pastures new after struggling to make an impact and prove his worth to manager Zinedine Zidane following his move from Real Betis last summer. 

According to Spanish rumours outlet ?Diario Gol, Real Madrid have decided they will approve any Liverpool offer should the Reds make contact for Spain’s Under-21 star this summer.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are expected to sign a central midfielder in the summer as Emre Can looks increasingly likely to head for the exit door at Anfield following four-years at the club, with Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere also said to be of interest to the Reds as the England international’s contract stand off with the Gunners continues. 

The reports claims Real Madrid are prepared to play the long game over Ceballos, however, as AC Milan, Roma and Juventus are also said to be in the race to land the 21-year-old, with the Spanish giants prepared to accept the best offer with the midfielder’s blessing.

Ceballos’s club teammate, Dani Carvajal ?previously summed up the youngsters frustrations following a series of cameo appearances as he said, via the ?Express: “There are 24 players in the squad and we all want to play.

“If someone doesn’t play and they don’t get angry it’s even bad for the team. Wanting to play and show what you can do is good.

“At the end of the day there are many games, so the coach is rotating a lot. We all have to give our all because the team benefits and if the team wins we will all be happy,” he added.

YouTube’s Newest Star Marcelo Reveals the Sport Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo Was ‘Professional’ in

?Real Madrid full back Marcelo has revealed that teammate Cristiano Ronaldo used to be a professional table tennis player. 

Marcelo released this information while playing a game of ping pong with his interviewer on his personal YouTube channel. He uses this channel to show his fans features of his life and to give them an insight of what it is like to play for Madrid. 

Via ?his YouTube channel, Marcelo said during the game: “Do you know who was a professional in this game? Cristiano. He was a professional at Sporting. He trained, trained and became professional.”

The Brazilian also admitted that it is difficult to enjoy playing against Ronaldo as he is too good; so good in fact that he cannot reply to some of his services. 

This is interesting news from Marcelo, and it makes you question what could have been if Ronaldo had carried on with his table tennis career? One thing is for certain, it would be a much less entertaining competition for the Ballon d’Or every year. 

The 29-year-old has established himself as one of the world’s best left backs, making the FIFA FIFPro World XI for the last three years. He has 23 appearances in the La Liga this season, scoring two goals and contributing five assists in the competition.

He will now look to impress in Brazil’s upcoming friendlies against Germany and Russia, although it is doubtful that his performances in these fixtures will affect his place in the squad for this summer’s World Cup. 


Zidane Reportedly Gives Green Light for Real Madrid to Sign €100m Robert Lewandowski in the Summer

?Zinedine Zidane has reportedly given Real Madrid president Florentino Perez the go ahead to sign want away Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski this summer. Zidane is said to see the Polish attacker as his priority target in the transfer window.

Lewandowski seems to have been linked with Madrid since the beginning of time, but it appears that this summer is the likeliest he’s ever looked to leave the Allianz Stadium. Having switched agents earlier in the season in a bid to engineer a move to Los Blancos, it now seems that Madrid are preparing a bid.

According to AS, Zidane and Perez are in agreement that Lewandowski is their top target after a difficult season at the Bernabeu. The tried and tested 30-year-old has spent his entire career turning out top quality performances, and the report claims that a deal worth around €100m – with Bayern determined to keep hold of the player.

Madrid are apparently happy to pay the money, knowing that Bayern themselves are soon to fork out €42m for on loan midfielder James Rodriguez.

Should this information be true, it would ultimately end Madrid’s interest in Tottenham striker Harry Kane. The Englishman has been linked with a move to Madrid since last season, but while a move seemed to be on the cards for a while, Madrid have gone off the idea of signing Kane due to the huge transfer fee he would command.

The Spanish club are also concerned that his introverted nature would have a negative impact on his game. Kane is not used to the hectic life that comes with playing for Real Madrid.

‘It Was My Fault’: Real Madrid Starlet Defends Zinedine Zidane’s Decision to Use Him Sparingly

?Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio has come to the defence of his manager Zinedine Zidane after being asked whether the Frenchman’s decision to drop him from the Real starting lineup earlier in the season was unfair or not. 

Speaking to Cadena SER, via ?Managing Madrid, Asensio responded to a question regarding the supposed unfairness of Zidane’s decision: 

“That [unfair] is not the word. It was my fault and my responsibility when I was out of the team. The form of the team was not so good and I did not have so many minutes.”

However, Asensio has recently been given more game time, becoming a regular starter. The Spaniard commented on Zidane’s choice to start him more often: 

“Now he is giving me confidence. I think that both in attack and in defence we are more compact and we have to continue like this and maintain this line. We are in a very good place.” 


Asensio also gave a comparison of his role with the Spanish national team with his one at Madrid: 

“I’m more of a winger for Spain while in Madrid I can impact the game behind the strikers too, having a bit more freedom.”

The 22-year-old has made 24 appearances in La Liga this season – including 14 starts – which is especially impressive considering the amount of world class talent Real Madrid have at their disposal. 

He has also been relatively prolific in Zidane’s Los Blancos side, scoring eight goals and providing five assists across all competitions. This is great in comparison to last season where he only netted six goals and contributed three assists. 

Asensio has been named in Spain’s 24-man squad for their upcoming friendlies against Germany and Argentina. It is expected that the playmaker will be brought to the World Cup due to his form with Real. He already has eight caps to his name and has won the UEFA European Under-19 Championship for his country. 

The attacker will look to impress in Julen Lopetegui’s side to secure a place in the Spanish World Cup squad.

The Reds’ goalkeeping woes have been well documented over the last few seasons, with both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius having really poor spells between the sticks. Karius is now Jurgen Klopp’s first choice keeper, but Mignolet has been tipped to make an exit at the end of the season.

The Anfield side are reported as having approached Roma with a view to making a bid in the summer, but according to Italian source Corriere dello Sport, they could be faced with strong competition – in the form of current Champions League holders Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants have reportedly made contact over the stopper themselves and are said to have prepared a €60m offer for the Brazilian star.

Roma, though, are reluctant to sell their prized asset and are keen to sign him to a new deal. As things stand, the player is contracted until 2021, but that could hold little meaning if both Liverpool and Real make advances in the summer.
