Fabián Ruiz has always been on Real Madrid’s agenda since he left Betis for Naples three seasons ago. In addition, Barcelona and At. Madrid have also been interested in the Andalusian midfielder, but the Italian team refused to transfer him or valued him at unattainable figures to prevent him from leaving. His quality is unquestionable, with a great left foot and constructive capacity.
But time passes and the player is determined to return to Spanish football and end his experience in Italy. The big three are still interested in their signing, but not at any price. Madrid strengthens that interest with the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti, who was their coach at Naples and knows him well. They coincided in the player’s first campaign in the Neapolitan team in which he played 59 games and scored eight goals, perhaps his best course with the Partenopeans.

The Italian coach has suggested to Florentino Pérez his signing to strengthen the core, a line in which he is short of troops and with veteran players. Ancelotti tempts the player to have him at his command again, although everything is more a wish than a reality because Napoli will not negotiate his sale until after the European Championship. They expect it to revalue to ask for more money, which would be an added problem.
The player has refused to renew for a long time and his club has put him on the market with a price of 60 million euros. An inflated amount since its market value is 45 (‘Transfermarkt’), a more reasonable amount over those 60 and even the 100 that the president of Laurentiis was asking for a couple of seasons ago. If the price is not lowered, none of the Spanish teams is in a position to throw the house out the window in times of crisis unless they find an interesting way of financing or exchanging players.
