Ceballos' spectacular early performances for Arsenal has earned him a promotion to the senior Spanish squad having impressed on the Euro Below-21 Championships final summer season.
Real Madrid midfielder Isco was one of the Whites' most instrumental players when they won three UEFA Champions League titles in a row, but since Santiago Solari started to bench the Spain worldwide consistently earlier during the year, things started to go downward and not even Zinedine Zidane has been able to get the best out of the attacking midfielder.
Do you think Isco should stay at Real Madrid or is a departure the best move for him? Things do change quite quickly in football and now he's playing, he's loved, he's happy, and I expect him to carry on doing what he's doing for Real Madrid. "Going to Arsenal has been an important step in my career", the midfielder confirmed in a press conference.
Bale has scored two goals and supplied two assists in La Liga this term, though there has been reports claiming the 30-year-old wants to depart the Spanish capital at season's end.
"Right now I'm where I want to be, and I am very happy".
"I knew the importance of this year".
"Sergio Ramos has won everything at the club and national team level", he added.
He is also looking forward to catching up with Norway midfielder Martin Odegaard, who is now on loan with Real Sociedad from Madrid. "He can contribute a lot to La Real, he has a lot of room for improvement".
"We've got four teams who have beaten each other and lost to each other, so it's coming down to crunch time and potentially head-to-heads".
It's Thursday and it makes no difference that we're in the middle of an global break: there is always news about the 13-time European champions.
