Manchester United are weighing up a €35m bid for Napoli playmaker Marek Hamsik, according to Calciomercato.com.
The Red Devils have a long-standing interest in the 26-year-old, who has been one of the best players in Serie A over recent years.
United boss David Moyes is keen to revamp his beleaguered squad during the summer transfer window following a disastrous debut season at Old Trafford - and has identified the Slovakia international as a potential signing to help the club regain their competitive edge for next season.
While Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis reportedly regards Hamsik as an integral and indispensable member of the Azzurri squad, it’s believed that an offer of around €35m could tempt him into reluctantly selling the club’s prized asset.
Hamsik would bring goals, assists and creativity to a team low on confidence and quality.
In 290 matches for Napoli, the former Brescia star has scored an impressive 76 goals, hence why the Red Devils would need to part with such a significant amount of cash in order to bring him to Old Trafford.
However, Moyes already has players of a similar ilk to Hamsik in his squad.
Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata, Shinji Kagawa and Adnan Januzaj are also attacking playmakers who prefer playing centrally behind one striker, so should Moyes be looking elsewhere this summer?
Or is Hamsik the perfect signing for the reigning Premier League champions?
