Manchester United invite Ruiz!

Napoli central midfielder Fabian Ruiz has been targeted by Manchester United! The Red Devils see the Spaniard as a potential replacement for Frenkie de Jong, whose signing talks have stalled.

Almost all summer there is talk about the transfer of the Dutch midfielder from Barcelona. The Catalans themselves are also ready to let de Jong go for a decent amount to recoup the financial expenses for Lewandowski, Raphinha and Kounde. However, Frenkie himself completely refuses to leave Camp Nou, since Blaugrana owe him a salary, and he is not interested in playing in the Europa League with the Mancunians.

A worthy alternative to de Jong is Fabian Ruiz from Napoli, who has defended the colors of the Parthenopei since the 2018/19 season. For four years in Naples, the 26-year-old Spaniard has played 166 matches, scored 22 goals and made 17 assists. Under the leadership of Luciano Spalletti, he turned into a real leader in the midfield, and thanks to his skillful actions, Napoli finished in the Champions League zone.

Despite this, Ruiz still wants to change the situation, because he sees himself in a more status team than the Partenopei. The Spaniard is in the prime of his life, is a key performer of the national team and definitely wants to prove himself in La Liga and the Premier League. But Real and Barcelona are not interested in Fabian, so it's time for him to go to England. Moreover, Ruiz's contract with Napoli expires in 2023. The situation here is the same as with Coulibaly. Either the player will leave now for money, or in a year, but in the status of a free agent.

At Manchester United, Fabian Ruiz is destined for the role of the main midfielder. In fact, he will replace Paul Pogba, who left for Juventus. Plus, Nemanja Matic also left the ranks of the Red Devils. So in this role, ten Hag has practically no sensible performers left, and the English league starts this weekend.

As for us, the transfer of Ruiz is a great alternative to Frenkie de Jong. Yes, the Spaniard is a little older and is not a world-class star, but in terms of playing characteristics he is inferior to the Dutchman quite a bit. The human qualities of the 26-year-old player are also on top. We are sure that he will quickly fit into the team and will work properly for the return of the Red Devils to the elite of English and world football.
