It was reported over the weekend that Sheikh Jassim had told the Glazers he was okay with them making transfer plans for Manchester United while the takeover scenario is still in flux. And Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who shone for Napoli this season, is one player on the club’s radar. Due to his excellent achievements, the 22-year-old has been compared to George Best, and a significant move this summer may be in the works.
This summer, United plans to add a number of players as they seek to contend with Manchester City for the Premier League championship in the future.
They are eager to sign a new striker and have their sights set on Victor Osimhen, Harry Kane, and Dusan Vlahovic.
Frenkie de Jong and Adrien Rabiot, who the team pursued last year, are two midfielders who fascinate United.
Additionally, it has come to light that the Red Devils want another left winger despite Marcus Rashford’s outstanding achievements this season.
Given that Kvaratskhelia, 22, has dominated Serie A for Napoli this season, he has been regarded as a prospective target.
When the Georgian international transferred from Dinamo Batumi to the Diego Maradona Stadium in the summer, few were familiar with him.
But in the present, because of his mesmerizing performances, the 22-year-old has established himself as a household figure in Italy.
The forward’s 12 goals and 13 assists from 31 league games were crucial to Napoli winning Serie A.
Additionally, he contributed to six goals in nine Champions League games while his team was competing in the tournament.
Kvaratskhelia has been so outstanding that, in a few instances, he has been compared to United legend Best.
According to Christian Vieri, a former Italy great, if the player joins Manchester United, “the days of George Best will return.” The same applies to Kvaratskhelia.
It’s like seeing Best again, as Rino Gattuso also said.
He is incredibly nimble and performs amazing feats. It’s a team that plays dream football and really thrills me.
Additionally, Kvaratskhelia is already superior to the United icon, according to Italian representative Oscar Damiani.
He stated of George Best, “He was a fantastic football player who made history for his country.”
“Kvaratskhelia, though, I think, has something more. The Georgian may be more physically active.
I could use a crude joke, hopefully, Kvara doesn’t share my mentality.
Kvaratskhelia will be a key player for Napoli as they attempt to win Serie A for the second consecutive year.
There has already been speculation that the forward’s transfer may cost more than £100 million.
If United were to pay that, the Georgian player would go down in club history as the most expensive acquisition.
However, the 22-year-old might be well worth every penny in the event of a transfer, given his performances and the accolades he has received so far.
Two further Napoli players are of interest to the Red Devils.
Osimhen, a Nigerian international who has established himself as one of the top players in the world of football, would provide potency to their frontline that has been lacking this year.
Kim Min-Jae, a defender, is also reportedly a target for United.
