REAL MADRID HAVE completed the signing of Dani Ceballos from Real Betis for a reported €18 million.

The Champions League winners beat competition from Barcelona for the midfielder, who was named Player of the Tournament at the European U21 Championship with Spain this year.

The 20-year-old enjoyed an impressive season with Betis, scoring twice in 30 league appearances, and Madrid and Barca both contacted Betis for him.

Betis offered him a new deal, but president Angel Haro revealed on Monday that the player informed them of his decision to join Zinedine Zidane’s side after agreeing a six-year contract, leaving the clubs to decide on a transfer fee.

Real Madrid and Real Betis have reached an agreement over the transfer of Dani Ceballos, who is tied to the club for the next six seasons,” a statement from Real read.

Ceballos is Madrid’s second signing of the close-season, having already secured Theo Hernandez from Atletico Madrid for €24m.
