Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has revealed that Jorginho could be a Manchester City player in the coming days after positive talks.
Speaking to The Sun, De Laurentiis gave hope to a deal that has appeared at risk of collapsing with the clubs struggling to reach a compromise on a fee.
“I think the deal [Jorginho to City] can be done in the next few days,” the film producer told Sun Sport. “Everything is possible as we have a good relationship with Manchester City and their people but we must negotiate.
“We are still not in agreement over the price for the player but we’ll be near to the conclusion as they made an effort in the last few days.”
With these words, there seems a good chance City can still land the 26-year-old, Pep Guardiola’s number one target for the midfield.
Mateo Kovacic of Real Madrid, Southampton’s Mario Lemina, and Nice midfielder Jean Michaël Seri have been mentioned as possible alternatives in recent days if anything goes wrong with the Jorginho deal.
