According to reports, Manchester United are among the Premier League teams on a mission to monitor Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
Erik Ten Hag’s side are likely to start looking at the transfer market before next summer with potential moves to be made.
The winger who has been compared to George Best could be the first major transfer under Ineos’ ownership.
According to a report from 90 min, Manchester United along with Newcastle United, Chelsea and Manchester City went on a “scout” trip to watch Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
Four Premier League teams watched Georgia play their final Euro 2024 qualifying match against Spain. There were a number of players they were interested in that took part in the match, but it was the Georgian winger who attracted the most attention.
With 3 goals and 4 assists for Napoli, despite the difficulties the team has endured this season, this is promising for the winger.
Despite the Red Devils’ interest, the 22-year-old is currently negotiating a contract extension with Napoli for another 12 months, while also receiving a significant salary increase. His current contract runs until 2027.
Former Italian striker Christian Vieri made the comparison earlier this year. He was quoted by Calcio Napoli:
“Kvaratskhelia’s goal is worthy of Maradona. The goal he scored was crazy! If he goes to Manchester United, George Best’s days are back, as is Kvaratskhelia.”
