Liverpool reportedly consider making a bid for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos despite recent claims suggested they won’t accept Real’s demands
The Reds have initially rejected Los Blancos’ request to insert a buyback clause in the deal to take the Spanish star to Anfield.
Although the 22-year-old has so far struggled to establish himself as a regular starter at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, La Liga giants see him as a potential leader of their midfield should he manages to fulfill his potential.
Therefore, Los Merengues are stubborn in their intention to get an option of bringing the former Betis man back to Madrid at some point, for a hefty compensation fee.
Meanwhile, even though the Merseyside outfit doesn’t like the prospect of forking out £45m for a player, who may slip through their hands at his peak, they are now assessing the possibility of accepting Real’s terms.
Jurgen Klopp’s desire to see Ceballos wearing the red jersey convince the Premier League side to overlook a buyback clause and push for the deal nonetheless.
