Manchester United have bolstered their midfield by adding Christian Eriksen to their squad and Erik ten Hag still wants the Red Devils to sign another player for midfield this summer.
The difficulties faced by the Red Devils to sign Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong has made them look at other options and this includes Napoli’s Fabián Ruiz.
Two days ago, Napoli expert Ciro Venerato stated Manchester United made contact with the 26-year-old’s entourage, but didn’t call the Serie A side.
The Spain international’s contract expires in 2023 and Quotidiano.net now provide a short update, stating his agent ‘would have had a meeting’ with the Premier League side.
Meanwhile, Il Mattino suggest that Fabián and his agent ‘would have presented an offer from Manchester United’. Although the details of the offer are not mentioned, Napoli would have considered it ‘very low’.
It’s for this reason [United’s interest] he doesn’t intend to discuss the renewal with Napoli. Luciano Spalletti’s side are ready to take a firm stance. He can leave if there is an offer of at least €25m this summer or the player must sit down with them to discuss a new deal.
If Fabián refuses, then Napoli can leave him out of the squad next season, like they did with Arkadiusz Milik in the first half of the 2020/21 campaign.
Il Mattino’s report indicates Manchester United will have to pay at least €25m to take the Spaniard away from Napoli this summer.
