Naples has new idols. After a spectacular run in which the “Scudetto” was won again 33 years later, several protagonists Maradona, Careca, Hamsik, Cavani, Insigne or Mertens club, among many others, as new stars that will always be remembered. the southern city. Two of them landed in the Transalpine region at this time. The other has not been in Italy for three years.
We are talking about Kvicha Kvaratskhelia, Min-Jae Kim and Victor Osimhen, part of Spalletti’s backbone and players who had absolutely no problem carrying the weight of the team on their backs. Two, in their nno adaptation to Serie a.
After an honest performance and a huge impact, Napoli’s goal is to continue to care. The work is quite advanced with the two attackers, but with the South Korean central defender it seems somewhat more complicated, according to “Corriere dello Sport”.
MIN-JAE KIM, PROMISE UNITED
The South Korean center-back was the third outfield player, employed by Luciano Spalletti. He played 3,800 minutes in 44 games, surpassed only by the coach Di Lorenzo (4,057′) and Lobotka (3,862′).
Coming from Fenerbahce, he cost 18 million and had a great job to succeed the flagship of the Neapolitan defense, Koulibaly. He did it for Ligo, when he was the best central defender in all of Europe, and it seems that he has been in Italy all his life.
The captain, in addition to making very few mistakes and being the most efficient in the performances, also contributed a bit in attacking: two goals and two assists.
Joined until June 30, 2026, he could leave early due to a clause of 45 million euros for clubs outside Italy, which will be valid from July of this year. Manchester United would be one of the biggest interests of taking him, although the South Korean company insists that they have no closed trade with the Englishman, who will offer him a much higher salary than he has.
OSIMHEN, THE UNREJECTABLE FERO
However, the ‘Red Devils’ plan is a double whammy in Naples. Besides Min-Jae Kim, with whom everything was already closed enough to leave England, they were also interested in getting Victor Osimhen, the top scorer of the Neapolitan team.
Current ‘Capocannoniere’ with 23 goals in 30 games, Nigeria ‘9’ has 28 goals in 37 matches between all competitions. With a contract until June 30, 2025, De Laurentiis has no intention of letting him go.
In fact, he made it clear that the former Insular player, who landed at Napoli in the summer of 2020 in exchange for 75 million euros, will only leave the club if the offer exceeds 150 “kilos”.
The highest clause made by clubs like Bayern Munich, wanting to sign him to cover the void left by the departure of Lewandowski, has bid to be deleted.
In addition to the Germans or Manchester United, Chelsea or PSG would also have the player in their sights. However, with the high price that Napoli is asking, it ensures that the percentage of continuity, at least for the next season.
KVARATSKHELIA, HASTA 2028
It’s easy to say in retrospect, but Kvicha Kvaratskhelia’s breakthrough into the major European leagues was simply sensational. 14 goals and 17 assists in 41 games support the great eye that Cristiano Giuntoli, the club’s sports director, had him when signing him for Dinamo Batumi of Georgia for only 11 and a half million of money.
Insigne’s successor on the left wing took a short time to endear himself to Neapolitan fans and although he has a contract until June 30, 2027, Napoli are already moving to renew him.
Pontica had already decided to extend his contract for one more season, until 2028, doubling the current salary (Going from one million net figures to just over two and a half plus bonuses for the objects), and without a termination clause. (As in the current page). Napoli has already made it clear that they will listen to conditions of less than 100 kilos, so if they are bought, it will be a real auction.
