Man Utd could be about to sign another ‘George Best’ after Sheikh Jassim approval

Posted by

It was reported over the weekend that Sheikh Jassim had told the Glazers he was happy for them to make Manchester United transfer plans while the takeover scenario is still in flux. Additionally, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who shone for Napoli this season, is a player on the club’s radar. Due to his excellent performances, the 22-year-old has been compared to George Best, and a significant transfer this summer may be in the works.

In order to compete with Manchester City for the Premier League title in the future, United plans to make a number of acquisitions this summer.

They are eager to sign a new striker and have their eyes set on Victor Osimhen, Harry Kane, and Dusan Vlahovic.

Frenkie de Jong and Adrien Rabiot, who the team targeted last year, are two midfielders who United is interested in.

Additionally, it has come to light that the Red Devils are looking for another left winger despite Marcus Rashford’s outstanding achievements this season.

Given that the 22-year-old has dominated Serie A for Napoli this season, Kvaratskhelia has been considered as a potential target.

In the summer transfer window, Manchester United might acquire a second George Best.
When the Georgian international transferred from Dinamo Batumi to the Diego Maradona Stadium in the summer, few were aware of him.

But as we move forward, the 22-year-old has established himself as a household figure in Italy as a result of his mesmerising performances.

With 12 goals and 13 assists from 31 league games, the attacker was crucial to Napoli’s Serie A championship.

During his team’s participation in the Champions League, he also managed six goal involvements out of nine games.

Kvaratskhelia has been so excellent that, on a few times, the United great Best has been compared to him.

Sheikh Jassim, a potential takeover candidate, has approved Man Utd’s transfer plans.
Christian Vieri, a former Italy great, said of the player in March: “If he joins to Manchester United, the days of George Best will return. The same holds true for Kvaratskhelia.

“It’s like seeing Best again,” added Rino Gattuso.

He is extremely nimble and performs amazing feats. It’s a team that plays dream football, and it really excites me.

Furthermore, Kvaratskhelia is already superior to the United icon, according to Italian agent Oscar Damiani.

He remarked, “George Best was a tremendous football player who made history for his national team.

But I think Kvaratskhelia has something more. The Georgian might be more physically active.

“I could use a mean joke, hopefully he [Kvara] doesn’t have the same mindset,” the speaker said.

In order to win Serie A for a second consecutive season, Napoli won’t want to lose Kvaratskhelia.

There have already been rumours that the forward’s transfer may cost more over £100 million.

If United were to pay that, the Georgian player would go down in club history as the most pricey acquisition.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is allegedly a transfer target for Man Utd.
However, the 22-year-old might be worth every penny in the event of any future transfers, given his performances and the acclaim he has garnered along the way.


Two more Napoli players are of interest to the Red Devils.

Osimhen, a Nigerian international who has established himself as one of the top players in the world of football, would provide a potency to their frontline that has been lacking this year.

Additionally, it is rumoured that United is interested in defender Kim Min-jae.
