There is still drama in the possible transfer of Marek Hamsik to China. The deal between Napoli and Dalian remains alive, despite some steps taken backwards during the last week. As reported by Sky Sport's Francesco Modungo, Napoli has set a deadline of Wednesday to put the deal in place, however there is optimism that a definitive agreement could be reached tomorrow. The bank payment would be made the following day (€5 million upfront, €15m within a year), which Dalian should complete. The only remaining issue is the letter of credit requested by Napoli: it is a form of guarantee of price, which Dalian had tried to get around. Napoli does not doubt the club's intentions, but wants the deal done with all formalities taken care of.
