Aston Villa are reportedly pushing to sign Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio, who will both be free agents in the summer
On June 30, Asensio and Ceballos’ existing contracts will both expire, making them free agents who can sign with any team they choose.
The two have been negotiating a new contract with Real Madrid, but as of now, no deal has been reached. Asensio has long been a target for Aston Villa, and earlier this week, rumours suggested that Unai Emery was interested in signing the 27-year-old winger.
The Spanish international, however, has reservations about a potential transfer to Birmingham and is now prioritising renewing his contract with the Spanish capital team, according to the update from Santi Aouna.
According to the report, Ceballos has already received a “very important offer” from Aston Villa for the midfielder. Due to his limited position in the team, the 26-year-old has concerns about his ability to stay at Real Madrid.
In fact, Ceballos is ranked lower than players like Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde, Luka Modric, and Eduardo Camavinga. With Jude Bellingham getting closer to a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, things will only grow more difficult for him the next season. As a result, Aston Villa is willing to offer him a path out of Madrid and has already sent the former Real Betis star an important proposal. Ceballos has experience in the Premier League after two seasons spent on loan at Arsenal. It is now unknown if he would like to visit English soil prior to the upcoming season.
