Fabián Ruiz is well on the way to fulfilling his potential, which has seen likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City take more notice of the Napoli star.

In the past few months, there’s been reports in Spain and Italy discussing the possibility of one of the three clubs’ signing the midfielder.

From Spain, it was Mundo Deportivo, who reported on Monday that the Premier League winners have ‘positioned themselves’ to sign the 23-year-old.

Over in Italy, Calciomercato suggested Los Blancos is the more probable solution, if the player decides to leave the Serie A side.

It was stated they could face competition from Manchester City, who are ‘serious’ about the Spain international, but the Etihad club have not submitted a proposal.

CalcioNapoli24 have an exclusive report on Fabián, in which they claim Pep Guardiola ‘is in love’ with his compatriot.

It’s claimed the English champions have not planned an offer at the moment because the former Bayern Munich manager ‘could leave’ City at the end of this season, even though his contract expires in 2021.

This comes a week after Sport Bild reported Guardiola is ‘no longer happy’ with his life in England.

However, it’s still doubtful that Pep is going anywhere, and even more doubtful that CalcioNapoli24 know City’s opinion on their manager’s future and the subsequent transfer thinking from that.
