Napoli in Driver’s Seat to Keep Their New Ace for Years

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has taken Serie A and Champions League by storm, which has inevitably attracted suitors, especially from England, but Napoli are in full control of his future.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Georgia star inked a five-year contract, thus until 2027, with an option for one further season. It doesn’t contain a release clause. He earns €1.5M plus add-ons, which will rise by €500k down the line.

Napoli acquired Kvaratskhelia for just €10M last summer. His valuation has skyrocketed and would probably feature another zero at this point, but the club has no reason to consider a sale. In addition, he’s represented by his father Badri, not by a large entourage eager to profit from his career.

The Partenopei handle his image rights, as it’s the case for most players that join them, which has already been a boon. He has logged 8 goals and 10 assists in 17 appearances. He experienced versus Liverpool his first defeat in nearly 40 matches, considering his successful runs with Dinamo Batumi and Georgia.

Our Take on Kvaratskhelia and Napoli

They will probably have to increase his wages relatively soon, but it’ll continue to be smooth sailing for multiple seasons unless a powerful agent comes into the picture. The Azzurri don’t need cash since they rid their payroll of hefty wages in the summer. The successful business model won’t change in the next few windows. They will continue to part ways with players that have been there for a while and try to replace them properly for cheap thanks to their stellar scouting.
