Real Madrid ‘will recall Arsenal loan star Dani Ceballos next summer along with Martin Odegaard and three others as they aim to save money’
Real Madrid want to integrate five youngsters who are currently out on loan into their first team next season as they aim to save money on expensive transfers, according to AS.
Dani Ceballos, currently at Arsenal, Real Sociedad’s Martin Odegaard, plus Sergio Reguillon of Sevilla, as well as Takefusa Kubo and Achraf Hakimi, at Real Mallorca and Borussia Dortmund respectively, will all return to the Spanish capital.
The club want to use their young stars so money can instead be directed towards a world-record bid for Real Madrid striker Kylian Mbappe.

The last summer saw the club splash out £49million on left-back Ferland Mendy, as well as £57m on striker Luka Jovic and a huge £130 for Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
Creative midfielder Ceballos has one goal in 10 appearances since moving to north London on a temporary deal in the summer.
Norway winger Odegaard, who joined the club at 16, has impressed in a series of loan spells and has been earmarked for a key role in the first team.

French striker Mbappe, still just 20, has been a long-term target for Real Madrid.
However, the club know they need to save money in order to afford a transfer that would likely break the £200m world-record set by Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
