Real Madrid Sign Dani Ceballos From Real Betis

Real Madrid have agreed a deal to sign Spain under-21 midfielder Dani Ceballos from Real Betis, the European champions have announced.
A club statement read: "Real Madrid and Real Betis Balompie have agreed the transfer of the player Dani Ceballos, who will be connected to the [Bernabeu] club for the next six seasons.

"The player will be presented next Thursday July 20, at 13:00, in the VIP suite at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

"The next day, Friday 21, he will join up with the squad's pre-season in the United States."
Ceballos, 20, burst to prominence after winning the Player of the Tournament award as Spain reached the European Under-21 Championship final this summer, and Madrid have beaten off competition from La Liga rivals Barcelona to clinch his signature.

Madrid are reportedly paying N6.25 billion (€17 million) -- more than his N5.52b (€15m) release clause -- to ensure they did not lose out on the youngster to Barca.

The signing of the Spain U21 international comes after James Rodriguez joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal earlier this week.
