The news is coming thick and fast from Italy on Jorginho’s proposed move to Manchester City. Negotiations have accelerated and if everything goes smoothly, the 26-year-old could be wearing the sky blue of the Premier League champions soon.
Meetings are taking place this afternoon, and it is believed that the two clubs could compromise on a deal worth up to €50million. Jorginho has agreed personal terms of €4.5million-a-year with City, meaning one potential obstacle has been overcome.
And now the midfielder’s agent, not for the first time of late, has spoken on developments.
He was quizzed by Italian news portal TMW on the status of talks and confirmed a bid has been made… and not rejected by Napoli. Nor has it been accepted, as far as he knows.
“We know that an offer from Manchester City has reached Napoli… we are waiting for a response from the Azzurri, who don’t seem to have rejected the offer,” Santos said. “If Napoli find an agreement with City, we’ll go from there.”
As always, we’ll keep you updated with developments as City appear to be closing in on the signing of Jorginho.
