Manchester United have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Slovakian international midfielder Marek Hamsik.

The 24-year-old has also been linked with local rivals City in recent weeks, with manager Roberto Mancini admitting he was interested in the talented Napoli playmaker.

However, Sir Alex Ferguson has held a long-standing interest in the player, reportedly rated at £35 million, and Manchester United have been handed some positive news if they wish to pursue a signature at the end of the season.

"Anything can happen in football - but these deals are only going to be activated at the end of the season," talkSPORT reported agent Mino Raiola has said.

The Red Devils were heavily linked with moves for attacking midfielders in the transfer window, with Wesley Sneijder and Mario Gotze thought to be on the agenda for the Manchester United manager.


However, the emergence of Tom Cleverley has made the need for a signature less severe, with many predicting Manchester United would fall short in the position this summer after the retirement of Paul Scholes.

Whilst that has not been the case, Ferguson could still be keen to strengthen in the area next summer, and Hamsik has now emerged as a legitimate target if Manchester United are happy to go head-to-head with their big-spending neighbours.
