Man Utd encouraged in pursuit of Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz


Manchester United are eyeing a move for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz.

United have identified Ruiz, 26, as a top transfer target.

New boss Erik ten Hag had been eager to bring Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong to Old Trafford, however, the Dutchman does not want to make the switch.

Man Utd officials are still eager to add a new midfielder to their ranks, and they could finally be onto a breakthrough with Ruiz open to the prospect of leaving Napoli.

Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano is reporting the Spaniard had another meeting with Napoli chiefs on Saturday, but the two parties could not agree terms for a new deal.

Ruiz's current contract expires next summer, so he could leave the Serie A giants for a cut-price fee of just £26million before the transfer window closes.
