Real Madrid are thinking about the summer already. Despite spending a lot of money last summer in order to strengthen the team, Florentino Perez and his associates are already planning a new summer spree. Los Blancos lost on Saturday night at Levante, which has seen them fall in the standings, now trailing Barcelona two points.
But Real Madrid could be going into the market in order to improve their midfield and slowly get ready for the descent of Luka Modric who is already well in his thirties. That player is Fabian Ruiz. According to AS, Real Madrid are interested in signing Napoli midfielder. Real Madrid sent scouts to watch the 23-year-old, former Betis player, in action against Brescia, which Partenopei won 2-1 on Friday night.
Talks over a new contract between Napoli and Ruiz have reportedly stalled in recent weeks, and Madrid are now weighing up an €80 million summer bid for his services.
