‘White smoke’ has arrived with Manchester City and Napoli finalising a €55million deal for midfielder Jorginho today, Italian outlet TMW claims.
The same source had previously reported that decisive talks were planned today and their latest update states that Jorginho to City is finally a done deal.
‘In the next hours’ the 26-year-old will sign a five-year contract with the Premier League champions, earning €4.2million per season.
Once the transfer is formalised, Napoli will quickly move to replace him with Fabian Ruiz of Real Betis.
The Italy international wasn’t named in Napoli’s pre-season squad today, the first official hint that a deal could be very close.
Another false dawn in this long-running saga or are we finally set to see Jorginho in the sky blue of Manchester City?
