Real Madrid gives Arsenal deadline to seal Ceballos-Aubameyang transfer



Real Madrid has set a deadline for Arsenal to accept their bid to swap Dani Ceballos and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to a report in the Mirror.

Los Blancos are interested in signing the Arsenal top scorer this summer as he edges closer to the final year of his Arsenal contract.

Aubameyang will be out of contract at the end of next season, but he is targeting a move away from London this summer and his preference is for a team that is playing in the Champions League.

Real Madrid has struggled for goals this season as Luka Jovic continues to struggle in his first season and Zinedine Zidane has opened the door for a more reliable scorer like Aubameyang to come in.

The report claims that Los Blancos have set a June 15 deadline for Arsenal to accept their offer for the striker and they are open to the option of a swap deal with Dani Ceballos involved.

Teams are preparing to make more swap deals in the next transfer window as finance will become tight due to the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

Ceballos reportedly wants a return to Spain, but the Spaniard will need assurances of playing time which he can get if he remains at Arsenal.

It is unclear if Arsenal would accept a swap deal or ask for cash for the player deal so that they can sign a replacement for their top scorer.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training



Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
