Real Madrid futures of Ceballas and Asensio remain clouded

The futures of Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio remain clouded at Real Madrid.

Marca says for the time being, they have no renewal offers, but what is clear to them is that they are not considered as undisputed starters under Carlo Ancelotti at Los Blancos.

Each, in their own ways, have contributed to the excellent season that Ancelotti's side are having. The former has scored a few goals and contributed in defence, with the latter emerging on the scene after he recovered from injury.

Asensio, who is collaborating with famous agent Jorge Mendes, is currently behind Rodrygo Goes in Ancelotti's pecking order and the potential arrival of Kylian Mbappe could see him drop further back.

Should Real Madrid decide against renewing his contract, they will try to cash in on him in the summer, as Asensio has attracted interest from several teams.

The coach would be happy to count on Ceballos as the player who will complete Real Madrid's midfield. He considers the former Real Betis player as a professional with integrity, who works every day to the maximum, without complaining about his playing time.

In fact, Ceballos played despite being injured against Manchester City. He stayed on the pitch until the end, giving everything despite the discomfort he suffered as soon as he stepped on the pitch. He has appeared in fifteen games so far this season.

Ceballos wants to play and feel important, something that is not easy, but not impossible, at Real Madrid. In any case, Real Madrid's directors are clear that if either of the two leave in the next transfer window, they will not do so for free.
