Man Utd ‘line up Napoli superstar to replace Antony and Sancho but could be restricted to loan transfer’

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly lined up a move for Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

The Georgian winger wowed for the Italians as they won the Serie A last season.

United are in the market for a new winger to replace Antony and Jadon Sancho.


The duo are currently out of the squad for different reasons.

Antony has been told to stay away as he deals with abuse allegations from three women.

While Sancho has been involved in a public spat with manager Erik ten Hag after being dropped ahead of the defeat to Arsenal.

Now Kvaratskhelia, 22, has emerged as a potential option for the Red Devils.


The Daily Mail have claimed that the Old Trafford outfit are “admirers” of the winger.

However, the report suggests that United may only be able to sign the Georgian International on loan.

This would be down to the club struggling to keep in FFP guidelines after failing to cash in on fringe players during the summer.



Stars such as Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay were wanted but clubs such as West Ham, Fulham and Everton but deals fell through.

Kvaratskhelia was highly rated following his performances last season in which he scored 14 and assisted 10 more.

However, he has not scored for his club since a 4-0 win over Torino in March.

Despite his questionable recent form, Napoli would still demand a high fee for the skillful winger.


And his signature could cause another headache for Ten Hag, with Kvaratskhelia playing from the left wing, which is Marcus Rashford‘s favoured position.
