Napoli star ‘would probably agree’ to sign for Manchester City in huge transfer boost, agent announces



| Last Updated:


The agent of recent Manchester City transfer target Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has announced that the forward would consider moving to the Etihad Stadium.

The 22-year-old had been heavily linked with a potential move to Manchester City after a breakthrough campaign in Serie A last season, however the Georgian international signed a new long-term deal with Napoli until 2027.

Kvaratskhelia was one of several mooted Manchester City forward targets ahead of the last summer transfer window, as the club eventually opted to sign Jeremy Doku from Stade Rennais for £55.5 million.

The Napoli star has enjoyed another stellar start to the season, registering nine direct goal involvements in 18 league appearances, as well as featuring in all six UEFA Champions League Group Stage fixtures for the Italian giants.

Kvaratskhelia was directly involved in 31 goals in 43 appearances last season, leading to transfer interest from both the Premier League and La Liga.

The 22-year-olds long-term future at Napoli isn’t certain however, with the potential for the winger to leave the Serie A side next summer, despite penning a new long-term contract extension in June.

Manchester City could therefore seek to renew their interest in the Georgia international, with the player’s agent having added to the recent speculation, revealing that his client would consider moving to Pep Guardiola’s side.

“For example, he would probably agree to play for Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona or Manchester City,” Mamuka Jugeli said in an interview relayed by Sport Witness.

“Khvicha [Kvaratskhelia] has different desires and goals: he wants to succeed, and he is already achieving it.

“Napoli increased Osimhen’s contract, but Khvicha wouldn’t accept a transfer to Saudi even if he offered him a billion euros.”

Manchester City are expected to be active in the transfer window next summer, but have already ruled out completing any significant business this January, despite the potential for Kalvin Phillips to leave the club.
