Report details the one condition that would see Tottenham Hotspur sign Dani Ceballos on loan

Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with a move for the Spanish under-21 star this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of signing Dani Ceballos this summer appear to rest on the conditions of a potential loan deal. 

Tottenham have been strongly linked with a move for the Real Madrid player this summer. The 22-year-old has something of a strained relationship with Bernabeu boss Zinedine Zidane. On top of that, the Spanish under-21 star has struggled for regular football in the capital. 

At one point, as reported by El Desmarque, it was even rumoured that Tottenham could see Ceballos arrive as part of a swap deal involving Christian Eriksen. 

As reported by Sky Sports this week, Tottenham are reportedly in talks with Real Madrid regarding a move. That report details how Ceballos is only keen on a loan exit. He is not yet ready to commit to a permanent exit from Los Merengues.

Now, Football.London has suggested what Mauricio Pochettino’s stance on such a deal is. 

 

They claim the Argentine would only agree to a loan spell if there was the option to sign Ceballos permanently at its conclusion. 

Which, undoubtedly, is the right call. Tottenham would effectively just be improving Ceballos for a year at the benefit of Real Madrid. summer. 

If Ceballos was also blocking the path to first-team football for talented youngsters like Harry Winks or Oliver Skipp, before eventually departing again in 12 months, it could have a detrimental impact on their development. 

If Ceballos arrives on loan, Tottenham must ensure a permanent option is involved for next summer.
