The Real Madrid qualified for the semifinals of the Copa del Rey by defeating Atlético de Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu. After a rather weak first half, the Merengue team showed a superior version in the rest of the game and one of the culprits for the improvement was Daniel Ceballos.
The Spanish midfielder put in an impressive performance against Atlético de Madrid, bringing rhythm, fluidity, personality on the ball, vision of the game and quality to each Real Madrid attack. His performance in recent games has been impressive, being key in the comeback against Villarreal for the Copa del Rey and in the victory against Athletic Club for LaLiga.
Dani Ceballos deserves the renewal
There is no doubt that Dani Ceballos is earning his renewal after these great performances, which also require more consideration for Carlo Ancelotti.
The loss of Aurélien Tchouaméni has greatly affected the rotation in the Italian coach’s midfield area, but the former Betis is being a solution both as part of the starting team and as a revulsion in the second parts. “These are the happiest two weeks since I’ve been at Real Madrid. I’ve found the maturity and continuity I needed,” said the player after the victory against Atlético.
His contract ends in the summer of 2023 and there is still no information about its renewal, but there is no doubt that Dani Ceballos is earning his stay at Real Madrid and becoming an important piece in the post-Luka Modric and Toni Kroos era. He just needs to earn the trust of Ancelotti and Florentino Pérez even more because, with his minutes on the field, he is winning over the Merengues fans.
