The Slovakia international has been linked with a move away from the San Paolo in recent times, but according to his representative, he will not be switching clubs before August 31
The 25-year-old’s future has been the subject of much speculation, with reports linking him with a move to either Chelsea or Manchester City, but his representative Juraj Venglos has quashed the rumor mill surrounding his client.
“Hamsik is excited to play for Napoli and be a talisman of the group,” Venglos told Radio Crc. “For several years, Marek has been here and he is happy because he has gained a lot of experience.
“This year, Napoli are stronger, the club have bought reinforcements since the departure of [Ezequiel] Lavezzi and [Walter] Gargano.
“They will fight for the Scudetto this year.”
Hamsik was on the scoresheet, along with Christian Maggio and Edinson Cavani, as the Neapolitans kicked off their Serie A campaign with a convincing 3-0 win away to Palermo on Sunday.Follow GOAL.COM USA on
