Real Madrid transfer news: Ceballos decision, Chelsea want Vinicius, Odegaard recall

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Real Madrid on Wednesday, August 12.

Real Madrid managed to wrestle La Liga away from Barcelona during the 2019-20 campaign, but the club disappointingly exited the Champions League to Manchester City in the round of 16.

The speculation surrounding possible new signings at the Bernabeu continues to gather pace, and it would not be a surprise to see some activity at the club over the next few weeks.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news of possible comings and goings at the Bernabeu.

Wednesday morning's Real Madrid transfer talk news roundup:

Real Madrid are reportedly considering keeping Dani Ceballos at the club this summer.

The 24-year-old spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Arsenal, finishing the season strongly for the English giants as they beat Chelsea to win the FA Cup.

The Gunners are allegedly keen to re-sign the Spain international this summer, but according to AS, Los Blancos could keep him at the Bernabeu for the 2020-21 campaign.

The report claims that Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is ready to give the midfielder a chance to prove himself in what would be a bitter blow to Arsenal's summer plans.

Chelsea enquire about Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior?

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior this summer.

The 20-year-old struggled to make his mark at the Bernabeu during the 2019-20 campaign, managing just five goals and four assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.

Vinicius did not feature against Manchester City in the second leg of the team's Champions League last-16 clash last time out, meanwhile, despite Zinedine Zidane's side needing goals late on.

According to AS, Chelsea recently approached Madrid to determine whether the Brazil international would be available for transfer during this summer's window.

Real Madrid 'planning early Martin Odegaard recall'

Real Madrid are reportedly planning to recall Martin Odegaard from his loan spell this summer.

The Norway international spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Real Sociedad and is also due to spend next season with the Basque outfit, with Madrid previously agreeing a two-year loan.

However, according to AS, Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane believes that the 21-year-old is capable of playing an important role for the capital giants next term.

Odegaard enjoyed an impressive season with Sociedad, contributing seven goals and nine assists in 36 appearances in all competitions, including four goals and six assists in La Liga.
