Georgian sensation Khvicha Kvaratskhelia lit up Serie A and the world as his team Napoli romped to a first Scudetto win in 33 years. The 23-year-old caught the eyes of many with his skills and knack for goal, which in turn caught the eyes of several European clubs, including Bayern Munich, FC Barcelona, and Real Madrid.

“Kvara [Khvicha Kvaratskhelia] is already playing for a top club like Napoli, but there are giants of world football like Real Madrid, Bayern or Barcelona interested in him”, Georgia coach and Bayern alum Willy Sagnol said (Il Mattino di Napoli via @iMiaSanMia). “Playing for these teams is a dream for everyone - all footballers hope to be able to wear such an important shirt and to be able to win big titles”.

Interestingly, Bayern already looked at Kvara in 2021 when he was still with Rubin Kazan but never really made a move towards signing him. Instead, Napoli came in and turned him into a world beater.
