On Wednesday, Marca reported that a good relationship between Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid has made the former the ‘best option’ for Dani Ceballos.

Another Spanish newspaper AS now claims Spurs and AC Milan have taken the lead to sign the Euro U21 winner, but it’s the north London club who are ‘best placed’ to acquire his services.

Their initial idea was to sign him on a permanent transfer and Los Blancos didn’t close the door, as long as they received €50m.

However, the 22-year-old only wants a season-long loan deal and his employer wants to respect his decision. Spurs have also accepted this condition.

Ceballos is an ‘express request’ of Mauricio Pochettino and the manager has already made clear his intention to make him a key part of his new project.

The Spaniard already has a sporting project and an economic offer and is ‘very attracted’ to the option of playing for Tottenham as they will compete at the highest level of the Premier League and Champions League. 

AS further explains the English club view Ceballos’ transfer with good eyes, even more so if Christian Eriksen leaves the club this summer.

Ceballos is currently on holiday and wants his future resolved before he returns to training on July 22nd.
