Napoli sensation Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, valued at over a billion dollars, has tied his future with the club for a very solid salary, you might think! The Georgian winger quickly established himself as one of the most exciting attacking players in European football, scoring 12 goals and providing 15 assists in Napoli’s stellar season.
Napoli are 19 points clear at the top of Serie A and are looking to win their first Scudetto since Diego Maradona in 1990. They are also in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, which no one predicted before this season.
Kvaratskhelia came out of nowhere to take Europe by storm after switching from Dinamo Batumi this summer. The world covet him, but it has now been reported that the 22-year-old has agreed a new contract with Napoli. Santi Aouna says he will sign a deal that will keep him at the club until 2028 and there will be no buyout clause. But the significant pay increase that everyone was waiting for did not happen. His annual salary is €4 million including bonus. This equates to around €75,000 a week. Fans are quite shocked by this, which they express on social media.
“It must be a typo!!!”
“4 million? In the Premier League he will get twice that.”
“And to think that six big clubs in the Premier League could easily give him double or triple salary.”
“This is poverty for a supposed superstar.”
