Napoli owner De Laurentiis: I spoke to Manchester City about Jorginho on Thursday…

For the second week running, Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has spoken to Italy’s Corriere dello Sport newspaper about Jorginho’s proposed move to Manchester City.

“Regarding Jorginho, I spoke with the leaders of City on Thursday and (sporting director) Giuntoli is now in touch with them,” De Laurentiis explained.

“We have to find an agreement, I provided my directions and took a step towards the English leaders.”

The film producer said it last week, and stated again that he believes a deal can be done. The Naples club are notoriously hard negotiators, and with City taking a tougher stance in the market in recent years, it was never going to be an easy process.

De Laurentiis told Corriere dello Sport, “In such cases, if one takes a step back, the other must take one forward. But there is a real possibility that we’ll reach an agreement soon.”
