Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s flirting with Real Madrid and club legend Guti may not materialise into anything concrete in the upcoming summer transfer window. However, the developments continue to form a strong base for a potential association in the years to come.

The Georgian international is a player whose profile is highly appreciated at the offices of Santiago Bernabeu. However, speculation of his move only grew when Real Madrid legend Guti found out that he was the winger’s idol and offered to send him a shirt if he joined the club.

As revealed by El Chiringuito, Kvaratskhelia has received his gift from Guti regardless. Along with the present, the former Real Madrid player sent a message that read, “For Khvicha, hope you liked the shirt and I hope your dreams come true. I’m waiting for you in Madrid.”

The Napoli winger was elated at receiving the personalised token from the Spanish legend and did not take long to send out his heartfelt gratitude to Guti.

“Thank you for the T-shirt and the message. You are a legend of football. Thank you,” he said in a message of heartfelt gratitude before revealing that he too, had a gift for his idol, which remains undisclosed.

While the stage appears to be set to welcome Kvaratskhelia to Madrid, Napoli do not entertain the idea of his departure. The Italians have set a price tag of €100 million on their star to deter any interested parties.

In 22 Serie A appearances for the Naples-based side, the youngster has scored 11 goals and provided nine assists so far. He is expected to be in action later today when Napoli take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

Marco Asensio is fighting for his future at Real Madrid. The 27-year-old winger is out of contract at the end of the season and there is no concrete decision made by the club over his renewal as of yet.

Some reports had suggested that the club had tabled an offer worth €4 million per year, which the Spaniard did not like as he sought a higher pay packet closer to around €6 million-a-year.

With his future a subject of intense speculation, Asensio had been linked with a move away to Premier League clubs such as Arsenal and Liverpool.

Meanwhile, closer to home, there were strong links to Real Madrid’s arch-rivals Barcelona. Indeed, the Catalans have been touted as potential suitors for Asensio for quite some time now due to the fact that he is represented by Jorge Mendes.

The superagent has close ties with Barcelona president Joan Laporta and reports in Spain have suggested that the Real Madrid winger has, indeed, been offered to the current La Liga leaders.

Amidst these speculations, however, Asensio has seemingly made it clear as to where his heart lies as he awaits a decision on his future.

During last night’s El Clasico against Barcelona, the Real Madrid winger came on as a substitute and went on to score a goal, following which he celebrated at Camp Nou, pointing to the Real Madrid logo on his shirt, showing where his allegiances lie.

The goal, however, was disallowed by the VAR, and Los Blancos ended up losing the game 2-1 thanks to a stoppage-time winner by Franck Kessie.

Earlier today, Asensio took to Instagram and posted a picture of him celebrating with his finger pointing to the Real Madrid logo, reiterating his commitment to the club amidst the links to Barcelona.

As for his disallowed goal, it sparked an angry reaction from Carlo Ancelotti, who questioned the legitimacy of the decision made by the VAR during his post-match press conference.
