Betis work on Fabian renewal

Real Betis are hopeful of a new contract for in-demand midfielder Fabian Ruiz to raise his release clause to €50m, according to reports.

The 22-year-old recently renewed his contract at Los Verdiblancos in January through to 2022 but his current release clause stands at just €30m.

A report in ABC de Sevilla claims the Seville-based club are now working on a new deal to ward off interest from others, who could be tempted into a move this summer.

The Betis youth product netted three goals in 34 Liga appearances this season as the club secured a top six finish and a return to European football.

Napoli, Roma and Atletico Madrid have been among the clubs linked to the Spain Under-21 international’s signature.
