Wanted Napoli Forward Will Get A New Contract And A Release Clause Instead Of A Summer Exit

Written By Onyeka Daniel

Just like their season has been so far, it was another disappointing result for former Serie A defending champions, Napoli as they could only manage a 2-2 draw against Fiorentina at the Artemis Franchi stadium. With this result, the Neapolitean club will need a miracle to be able to qualify for European football for next season.

Hence, the club is planning to carry out some changes to correct the situation. Several players are expected to leave the club in the summer with Piotr Zielinski set for a free transfer to Inter Milan while Victor Osimhen is also expected to leave too, for any club that is willing to pay his release clause, but the club wants to keep hold of Georgian winger, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia for at least next season.

According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, PSG and Barcelona are among the clubs interested in the Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, but the most likely scenario for him is a contract extension with a release clause. Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis is ready to meet Kvaratskhelia’s agent, Mamuka Jugeli, to discuss a contract extension for the Georgian ace.

According to the latest report from Gazzetta, a new summit between the two parties will take place before the transfer window is declared open, so not later than in two weeks.Kvara, who is one of the lowest paid player in the team has demanded a new €5m-a-year contract through his entourage, while Napoli will not offer more than €4m plus add-ons.

The winger’s agent has already informed the Partenopei about PSG and Barcelona’s interest in his client, but the Ligue 1 giants would be the favourite in this race because of a better financial situation. President De Laurentiis has not ruled out a sale.

But according to Gazzetta, the most likely scenario would be for Kvaratskhelia to extend his contract with the Partenopei, including a release clause in his contract. With regards to how much he would be worth, it is probably going to be more than €100m and potentially close to Osimhen’s clause between €120m and €130m.

The former Rubina Kazan player only gets €1.5m per season and his current deal runs out in June 2027 after he was signed from Dinamo Batumi. Napoli didn’t offer him a new deal after their title-winning campaign in 2022-23 so they will surely make their proposal in the coming days. This is just a temporary solution, pending a sales later on, perhaps, next year or after.


It is now confirmed that Atalanta, Bologna, Juventus, Milan and Inter qualify for the 2024-25 Champions League, but it is still possible Serie A could get a sixth slot. La Dea got the three points they needed with a 2-0 victory away to Lecce at the Stadio Via del Mare, which guaranteed their place in the top five.

It Is a return to the Champions League after a three-year absence for the Bergamo boys, who are gearing up for Wednesday’s Europa League Final against Bayer Leverkusen. That means Atalanta cannot be caught by Roma and Lazio, so the confirmed Italian entries for the Champions League are Inter, Milan, Juventus, Bologna and Atalanta.

However, it is still possible for Italy to have a sixth place in the new, expanded tournament, but only if certain conditions are met. They need Atalanta to win the Europa League Final on May 22, but also to finish in fifth place. If Atalanta manage to overtake Bologna or Juventus into fourth, then victory in the Europa League will become irrelevant.

This is because the ‘extra’ slot rules were drawn up before the season began and go to a team who finish outside the top four in Serie A. As it happens, Serie A already managed to get a fifth bonus slot thanks to their superior club ranking, so does not ‘count’ for calculating the Europa League victor’s qualification.
