Real Madrid have surpassed Barcelona in the fight for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz and reportedly want him in January.
The 23-year-old is going from strength to strength since he made the €30m transfer from Real Betis in the summer of 2018.
He has now become a regular in the Spain XI and is repeatedly linked with a return to La Liga.
Barcelona had been the most intrigued, but Monday’s Marca front page claims Real Madrid are determined to snap him up as early as January.
