Kvicha Kvaratskhelia’s father confirms his ‘dream is to win the Champions League and play for Real Madrid,’ but there’s plenty of time for that in only his first Napoli season.
The Georgia international has been a revelation in his debut Serie A campaign, contributing 14 goals and 17 assists in 42 competitive matches, helping the team to win their first Scudetto in 33 years.
“He is a professional and wants to achieve his objectives step by step, gradually,” father Badri Kvaratskhelia told Il Mattino newspaper.
“So his first objective is the next game in Serie A, the Champions League or international duty. But his dreams, those ultimate aims, are to win the Champions League, play for Real Madrid and reach the big international tournaments with Georgia, so the Euros, World Cup or both.”
However, Napoli fans are reassured not to panic quite yet, as the 22-year-old is in no rush to get that bucket list ticked off.
“He is not thinking about Real Madrid now, there is only Napoli in his mind.”
Meanwhile, the Corriere dello Sport claim that Kvaratskhelia’s agents were invited to the Castel Volturno training ground over the last few days to discuss a new and improved contract.
When he arrived last year from Dinamo Batumi, the salary was worth only €1.4m per season with the expiry set in June 2027.
Now the plan is to extend to 2028 with a raise reaching €2.5m per season plus performance-related bonuses.
