Serie A giants have no intention to open talks to sell Real Madrid target – Romano

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has become one of the rising stars in European football this season. Currently plying his trade with Napoli, the forward has racked up ten goals and 11 assists in just 20 league matches this term.

His contributions in the final third have been critical in helping Napoli build a formidable lead at the top of the Serie A table, with the Partenopei currently leading second-placed Inter Milan by a whopping 18 points.

Unsurprisingly, Kvaratskhelia’s performances have not gone unnoticed either. Real Madrid are among the clubs interested in the services of the Georgian international, who is regarded as one of the most gifted talents to come out of Eastern Europe in recent years.

According to Fabrizio Romano, however, Real Madrid and other clubs’ interest in Kvaratskhelia is ‘normal’ at this point.

However, Napoli, for their part, are not too keen on offloading their star player either. Romano suggests the Italian league leaders have no intention to talk to any club over the future of Kvaratskhelia.

The 22-year-old has a contract in Naples until 2027, giving them the leverage to hold out for a fortune. Recent reports already suggest that the explosive attacker could cost in excess of €100 million in the summer.

This could be problematic for Real Madrid, who are prioritising the signing of Jude Bellingham at the end of the season. The Spanish giants have appeared reluctant in meeting the Englishman’s hefty asking price and cannot spend a fortune on any other player.

Therefore, it will not come as a surprise to see Real Madrid miss out on Kvaratskhelia if he does indeed leave Napoli at the end of the season, which itself looks like a highly unlikely prospect at this point.

Ancelotti devises plan to prepare Real Madrid defensive ace for Bayern Munich clash

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
