Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will step up his pursuit of Napoli playmaker Marek Hamsik as he looks to sign the Slovakian international this summer. The Scot is looking to freshen things up at Old Trafford and is willing to make a big money offer for the talented 23 year old.

Some Italian sources believe that Ferguson is willing to offer up to £35m for Hamsik who has become a cult hero at the Stadio San Paolo and now into his fourth season at the Naples club the former Brescia man has become a crucial part of the club’s up turn in fortunes.

Hamsik arrived at the club when they were struggling in mid table after securing a meteoric rise back to the Italian top tier after a long period of financial instability threatened to ruin the club. Thanks to the Slovakian’s performances Napoli are currently in second spot in Serie A and a rejuvenated force in Italian football.

The talented playmaker is a wanted man though and even though he is tied to a long term contract a number of sides are looking to snap up Hamsik and the Manchester United boss hopes to bring the goal scoring midfielder to the club to help the Premier League side build for a bright future as a number of the old guard near the end of their glittering careers. Many reports suggest that Ferguson sees the Napoli man as the ideal man to act as a Paul Scholes replacement.
