Is Fabian Ruiz coming instead of Frenkie de Jong?



Is Fabian Ruiz coming instead of Frenkie de Jong?

Manchester United deals according to information from SPOX and GOAL with a commitment from Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz, should a transfer of desired player Frenkie de Jong (FC Barcelona) still not be feasible.

The English have been chasing De Jong for the entire summer transfer window so far, but it hasn’t materialized to date for various reasons. Although a commitment from the Dutchman is not yet out of the question, the fact that they are now dealing with Ruiz shows that United are gradually losing patience.

United’s new manager Erik ten Hag is keen to bring another central midfielder to Old Trafford. He sees Ruiz as an ideal alternative to De Jong here, while Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans and Wolverhampton’s Ruben Neves are also issues.

His contract situation speaks for Ruiz, among other things. Since his working paper in Naples expires in 2023, he would probably be available comparatively cheaply.

The 26-year-old Spaniard switched from Betis Sevilla to Napoli in 2018 and became a national player there. Last season he scored seven goals and provided five goals in 38 competitive games for the Italians.
