Marek Hamsik will never leave Italian Serie A side Napoli, super agent Mino Raiola has suggested.
Speaking to Radio CRC, the representative, who looks after the likes of Mario Balotelli and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, struggles to envisage a transfer for the attacking midfielder.
“I know Marek really well and he is very different from other footballers,” Raiola commented. “He’s in love with the city of Naples, he is very tied to the club and the President.
“I don’t think he will ever leave Naples and Napoli. I believe that he will end his career with the club without ever wearing the shirt of another club.”
The 25-year-old was signed by the Azzurri in the summer of 2007 after Napoli agreed to pay Brescia a fee of around €5m.
The Slovakian international has scored nine goals in 23 League games so far this season.
