The wait goes on, although the chances of Jorginho NOT joining Manchester City now appear slim.
The player’s agent, Joao Santos, after yesterday practically confirming the Italy midfielder is Etihad-bound, today spoke again about the deal, saying there is a verbal agreement but that the clubs are still finalising the details of the transfer.
“Jorginho is now in Fortaleza with his family on vacation,” Santos told CalcioNapoli24. “Negotiations with City? In football you need signed documents, without them you can do little.
“We have a verbal agreement with City, now we are waiting for Napoli and Manchester [City] to define the deal.
“Everything depends on this, next week could be the one.”
Santos also spoke of his pride that Jorginho will be Napoli’s third-most profitable transfer after Edinson Cavani and Gonzalo Higuain.
“Jorginho the third-most profitable transfer for Napoli? I’m proud but also happy for Napoli to make an important capital gain.
“It’s good that Napoli executives can find young prospects and resell them at these figures.”
