Could Fabian still be a target next summer?

Fabian Ruiz’s agent Miguel Alfaro has talked about the future of the Spanish midfielder in an interview with CalcioMercato, where he confirmed that his client has received interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid. While neither club will try to sign him away from Napoli in the current context, Alfaro said that they will next summer.

“Barça and Real Madrid are interested in Fabian and will try to sign him in 2021. We’re not in a hurry to make a decision, he has commitment and gives his very best wherever he plays, his team knows that,” said Alfaro.

Fabian was reportedly on Madrid’s radar all season long but even before the Coronavirus pandemic it seemed like Los Blancos were focusing on other players like Eduardo Camavinga. While Real Madrid’s interest probably existed, Alfaro might be trying to increase Fabian’s value right now.

“We don’t want to rush things when we’re making a decision. Napoli knows how we’re thinking. In any case, what’s important is that Fabian performs in the best way possible,” added the agent.

Fabian is still 24 years old and is a very talented player who could definitely make an impact in Real Madrid. Still, Los Blancos will probably try to improve other areas of the team with their budget, given that players like Odegaard, Isco or even Fede Valverde can play in the same position as Fabian.
