Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is enjoying a stunning debut season with Napoli since arriving at the club this past summer. And his blistering start to life in Italy has earned him admirers in the form of Real Madrid, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

This claim comes from 90Min, who state that Real Madrid and the other two European giants have dispatched scouts and intermediaries to take a closer look at the 21-year-old winger and monitor his progress.

Kvaratskhelia joined Napoli in the summer from Dinamo Butami, where he had spent four months after moving from Russian club Rubin Kazan earlier this year.

The speedy winger has quickly become an integral part of Luciano Spalletti’s side, already racking up a return of seven goals and eight assists from just 14 matches across all competitions.

It has helped Napoli move to the top of the Serie A table and qualify for the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League.

Naturally, the heavyweights of Europe have taken note of the 21-year-old’s exceptional form, with Real Madrid sending scouts to follow his progress, along with Manchester City and PSG.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti had already lavished praise on the young winger, saying: “He is a special player. We were already following him when I was at Napoli.”

Responding to the comments from the Los Blancos boss, Kvaratskhelia had said: “Ancelotti called me special? It’s a great emotion, he made me happy & I thank him from the bottom of my heart.”

In a different interview with Georgia’s edition of SPORT, as relayed by 90Min he had said: “I dreamed of playing for a big club growing up, that was Real Madrid, but Napoli is a big club – my dream has already come true.”

So, there is some affinity towards the Merengues there and in case Real decide to firm up their interest in him, a move could become a reality.

However, the report adds that neither Kvaratskhelia nor Napoli are contemplating a transfer at least for the next twelve months. Furthermore, there could be a possibility that the Italians make a new contract offer to the winger after his blazing start to life in Italy to put off suitors.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
