A few months before the summer transfer window opens, there are already developments at PSG. FC Barcelona has its eye on a midfielder from the Parisian club.
PSG Transfer Market: Fabian Ruiz in Barcelona’s
Plans Relegated behind Warren Zaïre-Emery, Vitinha, Manuel Ugarte, and even Danilo Pereira, Fabian Ruiz is not satisfied with his status at Paris Saint-Germain. Having arrived in the summer of 2022 from SSC Napoli for a fee of 23 million euros, the 27-year-old midfielder does not intend to spend the season on the substitutes’ bench. According to information from the El Nacional media, Fabian does not want to stagnate and remain on PSG‘s bench indefinitely, which is why he is almost determined to pack his bags in January.
According to the same source, PSG‘s management has given him the green light to negotiate with potential suitors. Under contract with PSG until June 2027, Fabian Ruiz prioritizes a return to La Liga. More than five years after leaving Real Betis to try his luck in Serie A, the native of Los Palacios y Villafranca has a chance to return to his home country. While Atlético Madrid is very interested in his signing, FC Barcelona is also in the running. However, PSG is not willing to let him go at a reduced price.
Paris SG demands €20M for Fabian Ruiz
In search of new faces to bolster their midfield, Diego Simeone is reportedly pressing his management to sign Fabian Ruiz. The Iberian media even specifies that the coach of Atletico Madrid “does not easily forget Fabian, who was once one of his biggest desires.” However, the Madrid club should expect competition from Barcelona in this matter since Xavi Hernandez also appreciates Ruiz’s profile, seeing him as the heir to Sergio Busquets. To let go of their number 8, Paris Saint-Germain would reportedly expect a fee of 20 million euros.
