Napoli Shut Down Exit Request by the Kvaratskhelia Camp

Napoli were rocked by the declarations of the agent and the father of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who explicitly asked to leave the team since the Azzurri won’t play in the Champions League and are coming off a terrible season where they had four coaches in their dugout.

The club was quick to respond, stating that it wasn’t up to them to decide the attacker’s future, stressing that he had three more years on his contract.

According to Fabrizio Romano (via SOSFanta), the Kvaratskhelia camp specified that they hadn’t explicitly talked to the player about fleeing Napoli. Therefore, the club still hopes the crisis will subside once the star speaks his mind, perhaps suggesting something different.

PSG are indeed interested in the Georgian talisman to replace Kylian Mbappé. He’s not the only name on their radar. A few Premier League sides would be very keen on him if he became available. There’ll be further developments only after Euro 2024.

The incendiary remarks by his entourage have surely dented the ongoing negotiation to renew his contract.

Our Take on Napoli and Kvaratskhelia

It’s not a great situation for the Partenopei. The issue of not playing in the cups, which they might have underestimated since they royally snubbed the secondary ones, is quickly rearing its ugly head. It’ll be up to new exec Giovanni Manna and Antonio Conte to clean up the mess and get rid of the baggage of previous skirmishes that are hampering them in the early going.
