Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz has no release clause in his contract amid renewed transfer speculation from LaLiga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The Napoli sensation has been a target for a number of clubs across Europe, including Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City after his impact in Naples over the last two years.
In January both Jurgen Klopp and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were said to be plotting moves for the talented 23-year-old with El Desmarque claiming Liverpool had switched their attention to Ruiz after failing to lure Isco to Anfield.
According to Rai 2 (via CalcioNapoli24), Man Utd were also set to muscle in and rival Barcelona and Real Madrid for the midfielder’s signature – with the latter duo keeping tabs on the Spaniard with a view to taking him back to La Liga.
Now the agent of Ruiz says “they will talk with the club at the end of the season about a renewal”.
Alvaro Torres, Ruiz’s agent, spoke to Spanish newspaper Marca about his future.
“There have been many changes in the club this season, it’s been a difficult year for Napoli,” said Torres.
“A renewal? We have set aside negotiations for a while, until the end of the season. There are very important clubs that have asked for information, and we have already informed Napoli.
“There is no release clause in his current contract. I really don’t know what Ruiz’s value is at present.”
Spain star Ruiz, who has been with Napoli for two seasons, having joined from Real Betis in the summer of 2018 for €30m, is under contract until 2023.
