The Spain international sees his current deal expire in June 2023 and the Partenopei will be forced to sell him in the summer if the player refuses to extend his stay at the Stadio Maradona.
Real Madrid, Arsenal and Barcelona are keen on the 26-year-old, who had claimed in February that he’d be happy to return to Spain one day. Il Mattino confirms that Carlo Ancelotti is willing to reunite with the Spaniard at the Estadio Bernabeu.
Napoli’s hopes to extend with their star seemed over only a few weeks ago, but De Laurentiis hasn’t given up, according to Il Corriere dello Sport. The Napoli chairman reportedly met Fabian after a team dinner on Monday night, offering him a new €3.5m-a-year contract until 2027.
The Spaniard is on a €1.5m-a-year deal at the Stadio Maradona and despite their need to balance the books, Napoli are willing to offer their star a pay rise, given that they will cut their wage bill with the departures of Faouzi Ghoulam, Lorenzo Insigne and, perhaps David Ospina and Kevin Malcuit.
