Arsenal transfer blow as midfielder chooses a future away from the Emirates

Dani Ceballos has handed Arsenal a transfer blow after he revealed that he is focused on achieving success at Real Madrid.

The midfielder has been on loan at Arsenal from Real Madrid this season and he has gradually become one of the most important players at the Emirates.

He has won back a place in the Arsenal team, but his season hasn’t been what he expected after he made a bright start to the campaign.

He has scored just a single goal for the Gunners and struggled to convince Mikel Arteta when the Spanish boss newly become Arsenal’s manager.

Arsenal has plans to make his loan deal permanent as he begins to deliver what Arteta has asked of him.

However, speaking to a Spanish media outlet via Sun Sports, he insisted that he still had three years to run on his Real Madrid contract and that just like most players, he would like to succeed as a Real Madrid player.

He said: “I am a Real Madrid player … and any player in the world would like to play for Real Madrid,

“I have a contract with them for three more years and they are the ideal team to succeed.”

    Not a blow at all as it was always expected . We were never going to pay the fee demanded and those of us who think properly knew this months ago. I rate him but havelong ago written off any chance of keeping him and THAT is why it is not a blow NOW!

      Jon, this isn’t news at all, as he has said this before about Real Madrid being his team.

      As far as I can see, another loan player who hasn’t lived up to the hype – just one game where he showed any class that would merit his asking price in my opinion.

      Not sure if Arteta really wants to keep him anyway, as his power of persuasion has already been used with our current players in a positive way.

        In actual fact Jon, due to his comments, we should send him packing back to the club he obviously loves and rates above The Arsenal – let them pay his wages and train him next season!!!

          Hi Ken.. just saw on Untold that Tony had a call from the club, to check how he is etc etc… have you read it? And have you had a call?

          1. ken1945 says:

            No Sue I haven’t – wil lgo on to Untold now and thanks.

            O.T. Sue, the main part is about season tickets for next year – it seems The Arsenal are going to take any differences off from next seasons price and if one doesn’t want to renew, give the difference back in cash.

            It also seems the Daily Mail tried ti insinuate that the club had made no decision on this, but Tony had been told the above by the club itself.

            Thanks for the link Sue, I’m anticipating that the age problem might jst come into the reckoning when fans are allowed back in, due to our virus affecting my age group.

          3. Sue says:

            That makes sense to me, regarding the s/t, Ken.
            Yes I think age will come into it too.. although it’s going to be a long while before we can all return.
