Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has dismissed the idea that Georgian winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is on the market: ‘He’s not for sale’. The player nicknamed ‘Kvaradona’ by the Neapolitan faithful, has enjoyed a spectacular start to life in Italy, playing a key role for the Partenopei in both Serie A and the Champions League.
Reports have already started circulating, linking the 21-year-old with the likes of Premier League club Manchester City, but Giuntoli rejected the idea when speaking with DAZN, as well the notion that Napoli would sign Cristiano Ronaldo:
Khvicha? He’s doing very well, as are many. There’s a long way until the transfer window opens, but there is absolutely nothing in it. We are very happy and we want to keep doing well.
Is Kvaratskhelia off the market? Absolutely, he is not for sale.
Osimhen? I repeat, we are not thinking about the transfer market right now. We try to grow day by day and see what we can achieve.
Our transfer strategy is always done with the head and not the heart, both for incoming and outgoing players. I think we have always managed to form a competitive squad and we are doing well this season too.
Ronaldo? I might be repetitive, but we really are not thinking about the transfer market right now. And even if I did have to talk about it, I would say we need nothing, because there are no problems in the squad that need to be repaired. Things are going so well that we would not make a single move.”
