Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is one of the innumerable players linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer. The Georgian International has publicly admitted to being a big fan Los Blancos’ legend Guti, and it was reported earlier today that he wished to follow his footsteps in Spain.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, there are no negotiations between Real Madrid and the Serie A midfielder for the time being. Kvaratskhelia was indeed a Real Madrid fan in his childhood, but the reality is that a move to Santiago Bernabeu is unlikely right now.

The youngster has been one of the Italian league’s best-performing players this season since his move from Dinamo Batumi. Napoli signed him for a mere €8 million in July 2022, and he took off immediately with stunning numbers.

Kvaratskhelia has quickly become a regular starter for the Serie A leaders and is one of the biggest reasons behind the Naples-based side’s 18-point lead on the table.

In 22 league appearances for Napoli, the 22-year-old has scored 11 goals and provided nine assists. His six appearances in the UEFA Champions League have not been underwhelming either, as he has pitched up with two goals and four assists so far.

Earlier this month, Real Madrid icon Guti was surprised to know that he was the protege’s idol. He offered to send a special shirt to Kvaratskhelia if he joined Real Madrid, fuelling the talks of a transfer. However, there are a number of practical hurdles that render his transfer impossible.

For starters, Kvaratskhelia plays in the same position as Vinicius Jr. His arrival would thus create a conflict over the starting position, for the Brazilian is one of the team’s best-performing players.

Additionally, Napoli do not wish to part ways with the forward and have slapped a base price tag of €100 million. With Real Madrid planning Jude Bellingham’s signing, such a large transfer fee would be impossible to match.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
