Real are now interested in bringing Ruiz back to Spain, but the player’s agent, Alvaro Torres, insists that a decision has yet to be made on his client’s future. 

Torres told Canal Sur: ‘It’s obvious that there are many important clubs that have asked about him, he has spent three years at a high level.

‘Yes, it’s true that Real has shown interest, we told Napoli.

‘But right now, he must focus on his team. This summer, we will see. He is a midfielder who will mark an era.’

A Spain international who has six caps for his country, Ruiz is excellent technically and is a fine passer.

Ruiz’s versatility is also an important asset – he can operate effectively as a central midfielder or in more advanced or defensive roles.

Given his prior experience of La Liga Ruiz could be a useful option as Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane looks to ensure that his squad is in good shape going into next season. 

Ruiz made 59 appearances for Betis and also gained experience on loan at Elche prior to sealing his switch to Napoli.

Part of the Spain side that won the Under-21 European Championship last year, Ruiz may well be tempted by the prospect of winning silverware at club level with Real.
