Ceballos hopes to play for Los Blancos even though opportunities have been diminishing since the return of Zidane.
Ceballos has been at Arsenal since the 2019/20 season and renewing his loan deal at the Gunners this season 2020/21.
His role has changed under Arteta and has not started as many games as the return of football since Project Restart.
Dani Ceballos, at El Larguero: “I would like to come back and succeed at Real Madrid”
In his radio interview with Cadena Ser programme, El Larguero, “My goal one day is to return to Real Madrid and be important in the best club in the world“
” Zidane’s arrival was great news for Real Madrid. I think there is no better coach for Madrid than him“
“I signed a long contract with Madrid. I have two and a half years left. My goal is to succeed at Arsenal. My wish is to wear the Madrid shirt.”
Ceballos spoke about Arteta and Arsenal’s position this season including the difficulties they have encountered, with their worst start since the 1970s.
“Mikel is a coach who fits me like a glove because he played in the same position as me. He wants the team to play forward when we steal the ball.
“We have started to play with 4-2-3-1 [formation]. Arteta has placed me in the number 8 role. It is a very static game. He wants to be in control of the game.”
On Arsenal’s poor start to the season, he added: “We had the aim of fighting for the European places but we got into a bad dynamic and when that happens it’s difficult to get out. We’ve chained together three wins so hopefully we’ll go up now.”
