Napoli Harshly Dismiss Kvaratskhelia Contract Chatter

Napoli tackled the recent murmurs concerning the possible contract extension of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia with strong words, denying any discussion about it.

“Some outlets keep reporting, having the agents of the player as their only source, of supposed negotiations for his renewal. It’s all BS. Nobody within the management ever spoke about it, as his contract runs out in four years. Directors Mauro Meluso, Maurizio Micheli, Andrea Chiavelli, and president Aurelio De Laurentiis never did.”

Napoli don’t feel the urge to improve his wages, as Kvaratskhelia makes €1.2M per year, which is low relative to their other linchpins.

Per Il Mattino, the Partenopei don’t seem to be in a hurry to finalize the new deals of Victor Osimhen and Piotr Zielinski now that the window is over. They had ten meetings to haggle with the agent of the former. The agreement is closer but not imminent. Instead, the conversations with the Pole have only been preliminary. The last one is the most urgent since the contract expires at the end of the season.

Our Take on Napoli and Kvaratskhelia

While it’s more an attack toward the press, with which they have a checkered relation, it’s a loud message to his agent too. Still, they can’t expect other stars to sit idly while they hand Osimhen massive wages. It’s already a slippery slope.
