The player expressed a desire to leave Napoli this week in an interview with the Slovak newspaper Pravda, saying that Milan would be a turning point in his career and he’d love to wear the shirt of the Rossoneri.
Milan CEO Adriano Galliani kept calm after this interview came out; Galliani said Hamsik’s words had probably misunderstood or mistranslated, but Hamsik’s agent, Juray Venglos admitted that it is all real.
“I do not think he said anything wrong,” Venglos told reporters, confirming the interview is real.
Napoli have revealed they would be ready to listen to offers for the 23-year-old, who finished the season with 11 goals to his name, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis wants an offer that “will take his breath away.”
The Naples side rate him at €40 million – a figure Milan definitely won’t pay. Negotiations between the sides might start in the coming weeks – but first, Milan need to confirm their interest in the midfield star.
