Napoli Declares Kvaratskhelia Off the Market Amid PSG Interest

On Monday, Napoli asserted that Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is not for sale, despite the star Georgian winger's agent advocating for a move, potentially to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a social media statement released early Monday morning, Napoli declared, "The player is under contract with the club for another three years. Kvaratskhelia is not for sale."

Kvaratskhelia's agent, Mamuka Jugeli, told Georgian television channel Sport Imedi on Sunday, "The priority is finalizing a transfer with a club that plays in the Champions League."

His father, Badri, expressed his dissatisfaction, stating, "I don't want him at this club anymore," following a disappointing season for Napoli, who finished 10th in Serie A and went through three different managers after failing to defend their title as reigning champions.

However, Napoli responded firmly: "It's not agents or fathers who decide the future of players under contract with Napoli, but Napoli!!! End of story."

Kvaratskhelia, the breakout star of Napoli's 2023 league title win, is set to play in Georgia's first-ever match in a major international tournament on Tuesday, against Turkey in Group F at Euro 2024.

In a bid to recover from a poor season, Napoli has hired former Italy, Juventus, Chelsea, and Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte. Conte reportedly wants to keep the 23-year-old Kvaratskhelia, especially as striker Victor Osimhen is likely to leave this summer.
