Just as with every other transfer window, midfielder Marek Hamsik continues to be linked with several clubs.
This time around, Premier League giants like Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the Slovakian international. Since Napoli are not doing too well in the Italian league, the 27-year-old may finally decide to leave.
This might be his last opportunity to secure a move to an even bigger club, but Hamsik has confirmed that he is not planning on leaving Napoli anytime soon. The midfielder has denied transfer rumours on several occasions in the past and he continues to do so.
Hamsik recently extended his contract with Napoli and he still has four years left on the deal. He says that he will be 31 by the time the current contract expires and this will be a great time to look at his future. Napoli are looking unlikely to finish in the top three this season.
Poor form just before the winter break has seen the club slip to fifth place in the Italian Serie A. This coupled with the fact that they will be playing Europa League football in the second half of the season may be enough to change Hamsik’s mind, but the player has revealed that he just intends to win trophies whether it is the league title or the Europa League.
"We’ve won three trophies in two years, something Napoli hadn't managed for decades. When my current contract expires, I will be 31 years old. My head is here and not elsewhere. I think it would be wonderful to win the Scudetto with Napoli, but it’s also great to keep lifting other trophies here and we’re in the running for the Europa League. My immediate plans are to qualify for the Champions League,” said the Slovakian international.
