Dani Ceballos: Escape from Madrid to replace Mousa Dembélé for Spurs

Sure, it’s a team game and there are tactics and systems and stats and tribal allegiances but sometimes an individual just comes out of nowhere and instantly gets under your skin, makes your jaw slacker than a character from Clerks and leaves you, grinning stupidly, processing the near impossible made simple and the simple made sublime.  Dani Ceballos, with his brave ball carrying from deep, fighting spirit, direct and positive vision and wonderful press resistant technique was my new love and all I wanted to do was watch. Ceballos has a prohibitively high transfer release fee in the hundreds of millions of Euros but a loan move, for this coming season, to develop for a fuller role in Madrid - particularly as Modric’s career nears its end - could be ideal. Let's take a look at where he could go.
