Spanish journalist Arancha Rodriguez reveals that Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia dreams of following the footsteps of his idol Guti and joining Real Madrid. 

The Georgian international has been one of the Serie A leaders’ biggest revelations this season, attracting interest from across the globe. In 22 league starts for Napoli, he has scored 11 goals so far with nine assists. 

Kvaratskhelia specialises in playing as a left-winger from where he has created 11 big chances and averages 1.6 key passes per game in Serie A. His ability to press high and dictate the flow of the game with his creativity makes him the team’s X factor.

The 22-year-old had often admitted to being inspired by former Real Madrid star Guti and revealed that he found it difficult to get his idol’s shirt in Georgia in his childhood. Guti responded almost immediately, offering to send him a shirt if he signed for Real Madrid.

“I’m Kvaratskhelia’s idol? Kvara, come to Real Madrid. I will send you a shirt,” he told El Chiringuito.

The winger’s deal with Napoli runs until the summer of 2027, implying that a potential transfer in the summer transfer window would cost a fortune. The Italian side have reportedly set a price tag of €100 million to deter any possible interest and wish to retain his services for years to come.

While the player would fit well into Los Blancos’ dynamics, the one concern regarding his arrival is the competition.

Real Madrid’s arguably most decisive player, Vinicius Jr, plays on the left flank. To bring Kvaratskhelia in on such a big money deal to occupy the same position would appear to be a futile operation financially.

Moreover, the men in white already plan on spending big for Jude Bellingham. To oversee two €100 million operations in the same window would not appear feasible.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
