Napoli's Aurelio De Laurentiis: Marek Hamsik Not For Sale

The chief has reiterated his stance on selling the midfielder to Juventus...
Fiery Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has told clubs interested in Marek Hamsik to forget about signing him, as he is not for sale.

The Slovakian international has been linked with a lucrative switch to Juventus, according to reports in Italy earlier this week. But De Laurentiis has always stated his prised assets were not for sale at any price.

"Hamsik is untouchable," De Laurentiis told

"I think he will be the best midfielder in the world within a year, if he is not already."

Udinese hitman Fabio Quagliarella has been linked with a move to the San Paolo this summer, but the chief has ruled out any attempt to sign the Italian international.

"Quagliarella to Napoli? He is a second striker, we need a centre-forward," added De Laurentiis.

"In addition, we have many second strikers. We need someone who can play alongside Marcelo Zalayeta and German Denis."
