Marek Hamsik’s representative laughed off reports of a return to Italy for Roma. “He is absolutely happy at Dalian Yifang.”
There were some improbable suggestions in La Repubblica newspaper this morning that Roma were ready to swap Javier Pastore with Hamsik.
That would mean swinging straight back to Serie A just six months after leaving Napoli and joining one of their bitter rivals.
“Marek is absolutely happy in China and has no intention of returning to Europe right now,” Martin Petras told Sky Sport Italia.
“He wants to respect his three-year contract with Dalian. He wishes to achieve important targets with the Dalian jersey and win as much as possible.
“Besides, Napoli is his home and his family in Italy, so he’d never play for a different club.”
