There is no doubt that Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is currently one of the most in-demand players in Europe, having enjoyed a blistering 2022/23 campaign.

In just 20 league matches, the attacker has racked up ten goals and eleven assists for Napoli, almost single-handedly leading the Partenopei‘s charge for the Serie A title.

However, Kvaratskhelia’s performances have not gone unnoticed, with European giants such as Real Madrid interested in his services.

Recent reports even indicate that the Spanish champions are contemplating a €100 million swoop for the youngster at the end of the season.

In the midst of speculations, Kvaratskhelia’s agent has revealed that the Napoli forward is a Real Madrid fan, even though he and his father are Barcelona supporters.

“His father and I are Barça fans, but Kvara loves Real Madrid. He’s a player for that level, who can play for any team. If we saw him in a Barça jersey, I would be happy, but he is a Madridista,” Kvaratskhelia’s agent said (h/t Giacomo Iacobellis).

The comments were perhaps not aimed with the intent of fuelling a potential bidding war between Real Madrid and Barcelona, as the Catalans are not linked with a move for the attacker in recent months.

But it certainly hints at the player’s desire to play for Real Madrid at some point in his career.

The Merengues, for their part, have shown the desire to snap him up at the end of the season. But Napoli may have other ideas.

The Italian giants have strictly refused to listen to any offers for the attacker during the January transfer window and the situation is unlikely to evolve drastically in the summer.

Kvaratskhelia’s contract does not expire until 2027, which gives Napoli the leverage to hold out for a fortune, effectively making it difficult for Real Madrid to afford the Georgian international.

Real Madrid bid Toni Kroos an emotional farewell toward the end of last season, as the German midfielder opted not to pursue continuity in the Spanish capital and instead ride off into the sunset.

However, as the summer transfer window looms large, it appears the German maestro will not be the only veteran hitting the exit door for Los Blancos.

Indeed, Nacho Fernandez’s future continues to be up in the air, as his Real Madrid contract is set to expire in a few days.

Why Nacho is mulling over a departure

The Real Madrid centre-back has been reported to have received a lucrative two-year offer from Al Ittihad, who would nearly quadruple his current salary.

Aside from the appealing financial package from Saudi Arabia, according to AS, Nacho is inclined to leave for other reasons.

For one, the Spanish defender believes that under Ancelotti, his position on the team has not evolved.

Even though he had an impressive season, missing important games like the league Clasico at Santiago Bernabeu and the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals against Manchester City has caused him to reevaluate his future.

This season, he has participated in 45 of the 55 games, missing just three because of suspensions.

Yet, his future at the club appears doubtful owing to the return of Rafa Marin from loan, the presence of Antonio Rudiger, and the return of Eder Militao and David Alaba from injury.

Moreover, Nacho’s thoughts have also been impacted by the persistent speculations that Real Madrid is interested in signing Leny Yoro. In the event that Nacho departs, Yoro might join either this summer.

As such, given the competition in defence next season and the reported wage hike at Al Ittihad, it is likely that Nacho will end up departing the Merengues.
