David Moyes is willing to offer £25m for the 26 year old Slovakian international but is willing to table a bid that would entail the inclusion of Japanese attacker Shinji Kagawa in a part exchange bid.

Hamsik is something of a cult hero at the San Paolo and is Napoli’s club captain however he is said to enjoy something of a frosty relationship with boss Rafa Benitez and has amazingly only completed a 90 minute run-out on seven occasions out of his 30 Serie A appearances this term and has at times been left on the bench.

Therefore a move to Man United may tempt the goal-scoring attacking midfielder, who could well be the ideal man to add some creative verve to the centre of David Moyes’s starting eleven.

Hamsik has scored an impressive 76 goals in 297 appearances for Napoli since moving to the club from Brescia in June 2007.

Kagawa has put in some decent displays of late but is still very much a bit-part player in the Man United first team set-up and is certainly a player David Moyes could feel is worth using as bait to land new signings.
