Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is the name on every fan’s lips after a meteoric rise at Napoli – and one Italy legend believes he could have a George Best-like impact at Manchester United
Manchester United have been told “the days of George Best will return” if they splash out to sign Napoli sensation Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
The Georgian winger, 22, has exploded onto the scene this season, grabbing 11 goals and nine assists in his debut Serie A campaign to help his side go 18 points clear top of the table. Few had heard of Kvaratskhelia while he was plying his trade in his homeland, but his electric form means his name is on the lips of fans across Europe.
Kvaratskhelia’s latest heroics came on Saturday as he opened the scoring with a sublime strike against Atalanta. It was a goal which reminded Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti of the late, great Diego Maradona, while the Italy icon Christian Vieri declared the player could match Best’s impact at Old Trafford if he joins the Premier League giants.
