Manchester United will have to act fast to see off the interest of the Spanish duo of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the bid to sign Fabian Ruiz from Napoli.
According to Fox Sports Asia, Manchester United are keen to do a deal for Spanish international Fabian Ruiz this month as they try to ease their midfield worries before the business end of the current season.
Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay are long-term injury absentees for Manchester United and that has forced the club into the transfer market.

Both Pogba and McTominay are not ready to return to the Manchester United squad until next month at least.
Pogba has been struggling with an ankle problem all season, while Scotland international Scott McTominay has a knee injury.
Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz has been a key performer for underperforming Italian Serie A outfit since joining from La Liga club Real Betis at the start of the last campaign for £30m.
His quality has led to the interest of both Barcelona and Real Madrid who are keeping tabs on his career in Italy.
Fabian Ruiz is on course to be a part of the Spain squad to the 2020 European Championships later this year.
