thumbnail Hello,

The Bianconeri are impressed by the Azzurri player, but will need to pay a high price to get him...

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has stated that should rival Juventus want star midfielder Marek Hamsik, they would have to pay a high price.

In fact, the Partenopei owner has said that it would take the entire Bianconeri team to afford the Slovak international.

Many at the Vecchia Signora see Hamsik as being the perfect talent to succeed Pavel Nedved, who retired from club football last season.

"Hamsik will not be going anywhere," De Laurentiis told Tuttosport.

"He is a professional and a serious person.

"Should [Juventus president Jean-Claude] Blanc want him, he would have to give me the entire Juventus team," he added.

The young star was the catalyst for the Partenopei's victory last weekend against the Bianconeri, with a second half brace.
