Dani Ceballos backtracks over permanent Arsenal transfer as he reveals dream of playing for Real Madrid

DANI CEBLLAOS has dealt Arsenal a major blow as he revealed he still wants to fulfil his dream at succeeding at Real Madrid.

Los Blancos allowed Ceballos to link up with Unai Emery's side on a season-long loan after being deemed as surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu.

The ex-Real Betis midfielder has been a huge hit at the Emirates following his arrival – appearing in each of Arsenal's 11 games this campaign.

And he got fans excited when he insisted he's "where he wants to be", but he has since claimed that his words were misunderstood.

 

He also insisted that part of the reason he joined Arsenal was to be named in Robert Moreno's Euro 2020 squad.

Speaking to Radio Marca, he said: "When I don't play, I don't enjoy myself.

"These two years [at Real Madrid] I've learned a lot from the club, but now I'm enjoying it [football].

"I knew it was an important year, the coach has doubts and he who doesn't play doesn't go [to Euro 2020], so it was a good time to go on loan.

"With [Unai] Emery's confidence I may have many chances to be in the Euros squad.

"I never thought about going permanently. My goal is to succeed at Real Madrid. I will fight to fulfil my dream."

Ceballos endeared himself to the Arsenal fans in the summer when he rejected a move to rivals Tottenham in order to join them.

And Gunners supporters have been urging the club to snap him up permanently next summer ever since his man-of-the-match display against Burnley in August.
