In a recent report, Defensa Central mentioned that Real Madrid have been offered a chance to land Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz this summer. It has been revealed that Los Blancos have been handed an opportunity to secure the services of the Spanish midfield ace in this off-season.
Ruiz’s Impressive Campaign At Naples Recently
Ruiz was a solid presence at the centre of Napoli’s midfield in the previous campaign as he produced a series of impressive performances in Italy over the past 11 months. The 26-year-old netted seven goals and earned five assists in 38 appearances for the Naples outfit last season across various competitions.
The Spain international was a reliable performer at the centre of the park based on his average of 1.7 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, 1.3 shots and 1.0 key passes per 90 minutes in Serie A. He was even tidy when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half after completing 90.5% of his attempted passes in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).
Will Ruiz Be A Decent Signing For Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti?
Ruiz can time his tackles well to secure possession back for his team at the centre of the park. He can provide some solid protection for his teammates at the back and can strike the ball with power from long range.
The Spaniard can even create a few inviting opportunities for his teammates to score on the attacking end of the field. He is well-equipped to make a real impact at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium if Carlo Ancelotti can devise a way to sign him this summer.
Ruiz will inject more bite and steel into Real Madrid‘s midfield department in the coming seasons. He could even serve as a decent long-term successor to Luka Modric at the Madrid club. At 26, Ruiz’s best years are ahead of him, so he will enhance the quality of Ancelotti’s match-day squad.
The Spanish talent has what it takes to help Los Blancos maintain their dominance in both domestic and European football over the next few years. Hence, Ruiz would be a brilliant signing for the Madrid giants as long as he can maintain his good form at the Bernabeu.
