Real Madrid, Man City chasing summer deal for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz

Real Madrid and Manchester City are chasing a summer deal for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz.

Both giants have been encouraged by Ruiz stalling over new contract negotiations with the Azzurri. It's understood Ruiz is unhappy with Napoli's attempts to insert a €180m buyout clause.

La Repubblica says City and Real are both planning to move for the Spain international this summer, with the Sky Blues viewing him as a replacement for the departing David Silva.

For his part, Real president Florentino Perez has already seen enough and plans to make an €80m offer for Ruiz in the coming weeks.

However, Napoli are seeking at least €100m to part with their young midfield schemer.
