Manchester United are gearing up for a busy summer, and they are looking at making a move for Napoli superstar winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Backed by INEOS Sir Jim is already building a solid footballing structure to steward business come the summer and a big money move like this in not off the table.

The Georgian Kvaratskhelia thrust himself into the limelight last season, recording 12 goals and 13 assists in 34 Serie A appearances. He alongside Nigerian Victor Osihmen were the main driving force behind Napoli’s Scudetto win last season.

His exploits earned him Serie A’s MVP of the season, as well as interest from top, top clubs all over Europe.

He has slowed a tad this season vis a vis his breakthrough season last. He is currently on 10 goals and 5 assists in 26 league appearances – which is still a pretty decent return for a winger.

Kvaratskhelia is an incredibly talented young man best known for his rapid dribbling, as his former manager at Rubin Kazan Leonid Slutsky recounted on Sky Sports.

“He can easily dribble past three or four players. This is not a big deal for him. When it comes to his football ability, it is fantastic dribbles, left and right, with very sharp decision-making and very good finishing. He has abnormal thinking on the football pitch.” Slutsky stated.

‘Kvaradona’ as the Napoli Ultras fondly call him has already cemented himself as one of the best players in his position and he would be a great addition to any side, especially a Manchester United side struggling to create and score goals.

According to a report by Fichajes, Erik ten Hag has identified the 23-year-old as a potential target to cover his immense lack of depth in attack.

He is on contract with Napoli till 2028, and he may have a huge price tag in the very unlikely event Napoli decide to let him go.

In fact, Napoli owner Aurelio de Laurentiis claims he will not speak to any club unless they are willing to part with a hundred million euros.
