Hamsik to China?


Marek Hamsik the player with over 500 appearances for Napoli and more 100 caps for his country Slovakia, could be heading to China. The 30-year-old hinted this week that his stay with his club could well be over.

As the player said to Pravda “I’m disappointed that we missed out on the title again. I’m sorry because our great fans deserve this triumph, and I thank them for their great support. I’ve spent all this time here, giving all my strength. Maybe now is the time when our paths will diverge. I’d like to try something new.”

As his father went on to add “The interest is serious but negotiations aren’t easy.“

"For three years Marek has dismissed any idea of leaving, only focusing on winning the Scudetto with Napoli, but they’ve failed to do that again.“

"The problem is that it’s not the main transfer window in China right now, that only happens in winter. So the first question, therefore, is when he would leave for China. Clubs have different ideas, the Asian season is up and running and Chinese teams have limits on the number of foreigners in their squad. Another thing is that Marek still has a three-year contract in Naples, so it’s all in the hands of his agents and his employer. Right now I see it as being 60-40 in favour of his departure to China. Now Marek's agent, Juraj Venglos, is going to talk to the president of the club.”

These tactics of talking about a move to China could, of course, be a great plan by his agent to drum up interest in his availability. As it looks now after many years of loyal service Hamsik will be looking for a new club this summer.
