Dani ceballos feel like a footballer again in Alcoy. Indito so far this season, the ex of the Betis will have in the Cup his first minutes of the season 21-22. In principle, the logical thing is for him to come off the bench, although if Carlo Ancelotti chooses to boost rotations, he could even start in The Collao.
The Cup duel against Alcoyano has been marked in red for a long time on Ceballos’s agenda, which has been out since the past July 22, when he was injured in the first match of Spain in the Tokyo Games. That ankle injury before Egypt Not only did it make him miss the rest of the Olympic participation in Japan, which ended with the conquest of a silver medal after losing the final to Brazil, but it brought many more complications for the Utreran. Against the criteria of Real Madrid, he did not return to Spain, but stayed in the Japanese capital looking for a recovery that not only did not occur, but aggravated his ailment to the point of putting him out of action for more than five months.
To the point that Ceballos has become the main tenant of the nurse from Valdebebas in this grade. It has not yet been released, despite being on the bench in duels against cdiz Y Getafe. He did not get to play, but he is scheduled to do so in Alcoy, at the Whites’ cupbearer’s premiere. The reasonable thing is that it has minutes or maybe a full time, but it is not ruled out even that it is headline if Ancelotti decides to give his midfielders on duty a break. The player is now fully recovered on a medical level, but logically lacking competition pace.
Ceballos arrived in Madrid in the summer of 2017, but since then his career has not been easy. It barely exceeds fifty white matches, because it has been the Arsenal the one who, as a loan, has extracted the most juice from the Utreran’s football. Almost 80 games with the ‘Gunners’ between 2019 and 2021, before returning to the It’s gray. The serious injury suffered in Japan has prevented us from seeing so far what has been the evolution and growth of a footballer whose signing is part of the policy promoted some time ago by Madrid to capture young talent.
With 25 to Already, six months ahead the former international has (eight games with the absolute) to show if he has a place in Madrid, whose payroll seems scarce for the competitive demands of the white club. In any case, the Betis, his club of origin. seems willing to try to get it back in the summer (the winter market option has been 99% ruled out by the Verdiblancos leaders), an option well valued by the player, unless between now and May he brings out the football that Madrid expected when He decided to undertake his signing almost five years ago.
