Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is close to completing a January transfer for the player. The German tactician has already confirmed that the Red Devils are in advanced talks with the Spanish star, as they want him in the middle of the field. According to the latest reports, the Red Devils have surpassed Arsenal in their pursuit of Napoli's Fabian Ruiz.
The 28-year-old is being considered as a replacement for Westham's Declan Rice. Manchester United will not pay £80 million for Rice and have already agreed on personal terms with Ruiz. FabiŠn Ruiz was able to make a significant impact at the Naples-based team despite an injury concern this season. In 19 appearances, the Spaniard has five goals and three assists.
Manchester United is well aware that Pogba and Van De Beek's futures at the club are uncertain. The club is willing to extend a four-year contract to the talented midfielder. Arsenal has turned their attention to Juventus star Arthur Melo as an alternative, which has opened up the possibility of obtaining the star's signature.
Rangnick's new style of play at Old Trafford is still attempting to bring balance to the squad. Manchester United are willing to sell Antony Martial if the right offer comes in, which will allow them to bring in more new players. Ruiz is a big fan of English football, with Manchester United being his favorite team.
