Napoli’s trio too pricey for Italy

Marek Hamsik, Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi of Napoli are unobtainable to Italian clubs, says agent Mino Raiola.

The Three Tenors are the Azzurri’s most wanted on the transfer market, but it seems that a Serie A switch for any of the trio is out of the question.

Asked about the future of Hamsik, Raiola, who assists the player, underlined that only European clubs would have a chance of netting him and his two attacking colleagues.

“Marek is a player who has such a high transfer value that there are no teams in Italy who can bid for him on the market,” the representative told Sky Sport Italia.

“It is exactly the same situation for Lavezzi and Cavani.”

Hamsik was linked with a switch to Milan last summer, but no move took place.

Lavezzi, who has a €31m rescission clause inserted into his contract, has won the admiration of Inter and Manchester City.

Cavani, meanwhile, has been associated with a number of Premiership clubs given his scoring feats at the Stadio San Paolo.

Raiola also spoke this afternoon about the futures of Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli and Paul Pogba of United.
