Chelsea target snubs summer move

Published Add your comment

Napoli star Marek Hamsik has disappointed Chelsea by insisting that his long-term future resides with the Italian club, according to the Evening Standard.

Hamsik has reportedly been a summer transfer target for Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris St Germain, but the Slovakian has pledged his future to the Serie A club until 2016.

The 24-year-old is under contract with the Italian side for another four years, and Hamsik insists he will be going nowhere until then.

Speaking to the Italian newspaper Il Mattino, Hamsik said: "My desire is to remain and win with the Napoli jersey."

Reports in Italy had suggested that Hamsik was ready to leave the club should they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season. Napoli are currently three points behind third placed Udinese, who hold the final qualifying spot, heading into the final round of Serie A matches.

The Naples-based side crashed out to Chelsea in dramatic circumstances in this year's Champions League round of 16. However, Hamsik is set to spurn the advances of the Stamford Bridge side and stay put in Italy.

The highly-rated attacking midfielder is the captain of the Slovakian national team, which missed out on qualifying for Euro 2012.
