Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos is in England and has an agreement in principle with Manchester City for his client to join the Premier League champions, the esteemed Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia reports.
All personal terms are agreed and the Brazilian-Italian is ready to begin a new adventure in England, but the two clubs must still finalise terms.
After many conflicting reports on a fee, with numbers up to €63million mentioned, and the possible inclusion of young Oleksandr Zinchenko, Di Marzio reports that City’s offer is €48million plus €2million in add-ons.
For Napoli, that isn’t quite enough, and it is expected that City will raise their offer to €50million straight, with no bonuses included, guaranteeing the Serie A club a fixed fee.
Will that be enough to sate Aurelio De Laurentiis? Only time will tell, but with Jorginho’s agent in England, it is looking a question of when, not if 26-year-old Jorginho joins Manchester City.
