Marek Hamsik’s agent has claimed that there is not a club in Italy who could afford the Napoli attacker.
The Slovakia international was heavily linked with a move to AC Milan last summer but the player’s representative, Mino Raiola, insists that Hamsik is out of the price range of Serie A’s finest.
“Marek is a player who has such a high transfer value that there are no teams in Italy who can bid for him on the market,” Raiola told Sky Sport Italia. “It is exactly the same situation for [Ezequiel] Lavezzi and [Edinson] Cavani.”
Meanwhile, Hamsik believes that Napoli’s hopes of finishing third have been dashed by Wednesday's shock 3-1 defeat at home to Atalanta.
"We are very disappointed by the setback," he told his club's official website. " It was an awful performance; we did not deserve to win and we will not be in next season's Champions League."
The 24-year-old, who has been capped 52 times by his country, arrived at the San Paolo from Bresica in 2007 and is now one of the Partenopei's star performers.
However, it has been reported that Paris Saint-Germain and Premier League duo Manchester City and Chelsea are both readying summer bids for the player.
