Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz not thinking about Barcelona, Real Madrid rumours

Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz insists he's not considering a move away.

The Spaniard has been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona.

But he says, “I am ever more in love with Naples. Before coming here, I had heard bad things about the city, but the motto is that when you see Naples, you cry twice: once when you see it and once when you leave. I am sure that'll be the case for me too.

“At the start, I cried because I was alone and didn't speak any Italian, but my teammates gave me a big hand. Day by day, I get increasingly enamoured with Naples. The people are passionate, they love you and that feeling is wonderful."
