Manchester United and Chelsea have been warned off a summer bid for Marek Hamsik by Napoli.

Speculation over the 26-year-old midfielder’s future has been gathering pace in recent weeks, and both Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge have been touted as possible destinations for the player.

Hamsik has endured an inconsistent season this term, managing just six goals and five assists in 25 Serie A appearances.

However, Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has dismissed reports that Hamsik could be set to be offloaded in the summer.

“Why should he be? It’s only journalists who put him on the market,” De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Marek has to come and tell me if he wants to go, but there is no more Neapolitan player than him. He has become Neapolitan and for me he is absolutely not for sale.

“Of course, if he came to me and asked to leave, then we’d have to discuss it.”
