Hamsik snubs Chelsea with new deal

Published Add your comment

Chelsea’s chase for Napoli star Marek Hamsik has come to an end with the news that he has signed a new contract.


Corriere dello Sport have reported that the Slovakian midfielder has agreed a new deal to keep him in Naples until 2016 - a decision which snubs the interest from Stamford Bridge.


The Blues were reportedly interested in Hamsik’s services and Chelsea’s owner, Roman Abramovich, was encouraged to bid for the attacking midfielder earlier this year by the player’s agent.


An extremely talented player, Hamsik has built up a formidable partnership with Napoli’s other much sought after attackers, Uruguayan Edinson Cavani and Argentinean Ezequiel Lavezzi.


The 24-year-old moved to the Stadio San Paolo from Brescia in 2007 and his reputation has grown over the intervening years.


Manchester City were also reported to have an interest in the Slovakia national team captain, but Chelsea were reported to have been closest to signing him.


Hamsik was part of the Napoli team that was knocked out of the Champions League last 16 by the Stamford Bridge club.
