Dani Ceballos has been one of Spain’s standout performers at this summer’s European Under-21 Championship and the midfielder has suggested that he might have to leave Real Madrid to feel important.
“I don’t want them to sell me, but I want to enjoy myself and feel important, wherever that may be. I have a bit of experience and I believe that next year will be my best year,” Ceballos told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.
The 22-year-old midfielder only started 13 games in La Liga last season and is not expected to be in Zidane’s plans for the upcoming campaign, but right now he’s focused on the U-21 Euros.
La Rojita beat France 4-1 last night to book their place in Sunday’s final, where they will face Germany, a repeat of the 2017 final in which Spain fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat.
“I play to have fun and I’m desperate to show what I’m worth. It’s not been my greatest year this season but I was really keen that things would go my way. The final could be the most important game of my life, and for me this season is not over.
“They came out on top two years ago. It was a tactical masterclass. We have the opportunity for revenge. This team has room to improve and we’ve still not reached our best level. We hope to be at our best in the final.” concluded Ceballos.
