Revealed: Hamsik's Dalian deal

Napoli will reportedly earn at least €18m from selling Marek Hamsik to Dalian Yifang, who will pay the midfielder a minimum of €27m over three years.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Napoli are working on a permanent sale for Hamsik as opposed to a loan with an obligation to buy.

That means the Partenopei will pocket €18m from Dalian up front, with the Chinese club also liable for €2m in bonuses.

Gianluca Di Marzio already reported on Monday evening that the Slovak will earn €9m a season plus bonuses for the next three years.

Hamsik: 'Still' a Napoli player

Marek Hamsik says he remains a Napoli player but only because ‘there’s still nothing official’ with Chinese club Dalian Yifang.

It seems a matter of when not if Hamsik joins Dalian, who already have former Inter and Milan target Yannick Carrasco on their books, and the Napoli captain gave an update on his proposed transfer.

“We’re not here for me, we’re here for Dr De Nicola,” the Slovak told Tuttomercatoweb from the 60th birthday party of Partenopei chief medic Alfonso De Nicola.

Arrivederci Hamsik

With Marek Hamsik moving to Dalian Yifang, Vilizar Yakimov pays tribute to the Napoli legend, as his departure marks the end of an era under Vesuvius.

Marek Hamsik: 12 years, 520 games and 121 goals. Nobody has played more games or scored more goals for Napoli than Marekiaro, who, despite winning only three trophies, has already earned his place in Calcio’s history books.

The Slovakian has been the main pillar of Napoli’s success in recent years and the €5.5m that the Partenopei paid Brescia in 2007 for his services proved to be a real bargain.
