Ceballos vows to make Real Madrid's history 'even greater'

And the 20-year-old says he is hungry for success at the La Liga and Champions League titleholders and is fully deserving of the opportunity.

They reportedly tabled a bid of €20 million, €5 million above his release clause, with Serie A champions Juventus also matching Los Blancos' offer.

According to a report from AS this afternoon, Spanish giants Real Madrid have included an astounding release clause in the contract of new signing Dani Ceballos.

"You cannot imagine the pride and responsibility I feel at having joined Real Madrid", he stated on social media.

Ceballos was one of the stars of the U21 European Championships in Poland last month, and was crowned as Player of The Tournament en route to helping Spain reach the final, where they lost to Germany.

"But if I got this far it's on the back of two things; hard work and humility and I'll do everything I can to show I deserve to play in these colors". "I will give my all to make this club's history even greater".

"Our objectives must be as high as possible so that we try to exceed ourselves every year as we want to break records and statistics.

The next day, Friday 21, he will join up with the squad's pre-season in the United States".

With the likes of Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Toni Kroos at the Frenchman's disposal, Ceballos, who won 79 take-ons - the third highest total across the entire division - will give Madrid even more depth in central midfield.
