Father hands Chelsea massive boost in pursuit of 132-goal attacking midfielder, one of Europe's best


The father of Napoli attacking midfielder Marek Hamsik has confirmed that his client could leave Napoli this summer.

The Slovakia international is one of Europe's best players in his position and has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea.

He surpassed Diego Maradona's long-standing goalscoring record for Napoli at the end of last year but is expected to embark on a new experience next season.

"There are three clubs interested in Marek, they have offered him €10 million-a-year," Richard Hamsik told Pravda.

"Trouble is, Chinese clubs will only be able to sign new players in winter and Hamsik has three years left in his contract with Napoli.

"Marek talked with the president [De Laurentiis] about a possible exit from Napoli. I'd say there is a 60% of chances to see him leave the club. It all depends on his agent [Yuri] Venglos now."
