Dani Ceballos has reached an agreement with Real Madrid, according to Betis chairman Angel Haro.
The 20-year-old midfielder starred as part of the Spain team that reached the final of the European Under-21 Championship in Poland last month, where he was named player of the tournament.
Ceballos was also linked to Barcelona but Madrid appear to have beaten their rivals to get their man, with Haro confirming his club are in talks with the La Liga champions to bring the transfer to a conclusion.
“Dani has rejected our offer to extend his contract with Betis and Real Madrid has told us that he has an agreement with them,” Haro told a news conference.
“Both clubs are talking, in hours or days we will have news.”
