Italy’s top transfer source, Gianluca Di Marzio, has added to the growing number of reports that Jorginho is finally close to joining Manchester City, revealing that negotiations are down to the final details.
The Sky Italia guru reports that City and Napoli are discussing a few last things, such as the make-up of the bonuses and the 5% solidarity payments that his former clubs will be entitled to.
Only a few things need to be defined before protracted talks can come to a satisfying conclusion.
According to the latest reports, the Brazil-born Italy international is expected to cost City around €50million (£43.9million) up front with a further €3million in bonuses to follow that would take the fee up to €53million (£46.4million).
Earlier today, the player’s agent, Joao Santos, told Radio Kiss Kiss that a five-year contract is ready for Jorginho at the Etihad Stadium, and he now seems close to being able to sign on the dotted line.
