Man Utd told to sign 'the next George Best' who ripped Liverpool apart earlier this season

Manchester United have been urged to sign an exciting Serie A winger this summer who has been dubbed as 'the next George Best'.

The Red Devils continue to fight in three competitions this season after lifting the Carabao Cup last month and are already planning for the summer transfer window.

They remain in with a good chance of winning the FA Cup and the Europa League, but Erik ten Hag needs to improve his squad ahead of next season to mount a serious challenge in the Premier League.

One player they are being pushed to sign is Napoli sensation Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The Georgian winger has had an explosive first season in Serie A helping his side go 18 points clear at the top by scoring 11 and assisting 11 in 22 games.


He's already been compared to many greats of the game including Napoli legend Diego Maradona and United's George Best.

Former Italy international Christian Veri believes Kvaratskhelia would have a similar impact to Best if he moved to Old Trafford.

Speaking to Bobo TV, as reported in The Mirror, he said: "If he goes to Manchester United, the days of George Best will return. Kvaratskhelia is the same. I can't wait for Wednesday to see Napoli play."



He ripped Liverpool apart this season

Earlier this season Napoli took on English opposition in the form of Liverpool in the Champions League group stage.

The Italian side caused a major upset as Jurgen Klopp's side fell to a 4-1 defeat in Naples back in September.

It was Kvaratskhelia who ripped the Reds apart and had a hand in the three goals scored in the first half as he proved too much for the Liverpool defenders to handle.


The 22-year-old only joined Napoli from Dinamo Batumi last summer for a reported fee of €10 million, but his value has skyrocketed since then.

Even though he has suitors from all over Europe his club are fighting for league titles so why would he want to leave now?

United have weaker areas of the team they need to think about strengthening so fans will have to wait to get a glimpse of the new Best.
