The 23-year-old midfielder joined Arsenal on a season-long loan at the beginning of the season, quickly becoming one of Unai Emery’s most trusted players.
An injury forced Ceballos into having to wait for his chance under new manager Mikel Arteta, although he was beginning to impress shortly before the coronavirus pandemic halted the 2019/20 season.
However, in an interview with Onda Cero, the Spaniard says he remains committed to rejoining Real at the end of the current campaign.
He said: “I have not spoken to Zidane, he is now focused on his players.
“When my loan contract ends I will be a Real Madrid player again. My goal is to succeed there.”
Ceballos added however that he remains focused on Arsenal until his deal expires.
“I had to be away for a long time due to injury but I worked hard to turn the situation around,” Ceballos said.
“With Arteta, I have had a very good relationship since he arrived, he has given me confidence and now I am focused on ending the season in the best possible way and achieving our goals.”
