Ceballos joined the Spanish and European champions on a six-year deal from Real Betis on Friday after impressing for Spain at the European Under 21 Championship.
Ceballos, 20, burst to prominence after winning the Player of the Tournament award as Spain reached the European Under-21 Championship final this summer, and Madrid have beaten off competition from La Liga rivals Barcelona to clinch his signature.
His performances in Poland lead Barca expressing an interest.
The extra €5 milllion is claimed to be commissions for Ceballos' agent and entourage, according to Football Italia, who also reported, despite the Italian champions' interest, that Ceballos would prefer a move to Real.
Real Madrid have been training together at the Univesity of California as they continue their preparations for the new season.
Dani Ceballos has revealed he will give his all to prove he deserves to wear the Real Madrid shirt.
With the likes of Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Toni Kroos at the Frenchman's disposal, Ceballos, who won 79 take-ons - the third highest total across the entire division - will give Madrid even more depth in central midfield.
We've seen some release clauses in our time but this must be up there with one of the biggest ever.
