Fabian Ruiz news

Fabian Ruiz to Man Utd?

Manchester United have entered talks with the representatives of Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz over a possible move.

The Red Devils have been keen on landing a holding midfielder this summer, but they are yet to secure a suitable target.

Frenkie de Jong has been the main choice for manager Erik ten Hag, but he is reluctant to leave Barcelona, as things stand.

Hence, the Red Devils could be forced to look into a replacement, and Calcio Napoli 24 claim that Ruiz could be an option.

The Spain international has entered the final year of his deal at Napoli, and he has no plans of penning a possible extension.

This is likely to force the Naples outfit to sanction his sale, and United will be hoping to land him for a knockdown price.

Ruiz has been long linked with a move to the Premier League, and he has the attributes to suit the style of play under Ten Hag.

He is strong with his tackling and distribution. The former Real Betis man can also make goal contributions at key phases.
