Kvaratskhelia Not Seen as a Real Flight Risk by Napoli

Despite his agent occasionally stirring the pot and stalling contract talks, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is primed to stay at Napoli in the summer and likely well past it. The star had an emphatic celebration after his gem against Juventus, which some interpreted as an indication of his future.

According to Calciomercato, his representative Mamuka Jugeli and team president Aurelio De Laurentiis will sit down in May to take stock and start negotiating. The offers mentioned by the former haven’t arrived yet.

In addition, Napoli have no intention of entertaining the prospective bids for Kvaratskhelia, even should they clear the €100M threshold. The Partenopei expect to lose Victor Osimhen and don’t want to part ways with two linchpins at the same time.

The Georgian ace is under contract until 2027 but makes just €1.5M annually. He’s due for a substantial pay bump, but his camp and the side postponed the matter to the summer. There’s no need to convince the attacker, as he’s very comfortable in Naples. His father Badri recently weighed in to RDS Radio Serie A (via Sport del Sud).

“It’s up to him to decide his future. I think he’ll continue wearing the Azzurri jersey, but I’ll respect his decision in any case.”

Our Take on Napoli and Kvaratskhelia

Some murmurs and skirmishes are normal in the early stages of a complicated negotiation, but it would be more than stunning if he didn’t stay for at least two or three more seasons.
