Jorginho has not been called up by Napoli for their pre-season training camp at Dimaro, the biggest and most official hint yet that the 26-year-old is on the verge of joining Manchester City.

Besides Jorginho, the only players absent are those on World Cup duty, which is a telling sign. Big stars such as Marek Hamsik, Lorenzo Insigne and Raul Albiol have been summoned, and under normal circumstances Jorginho would join them for Napoli’s preparation as they again look to dethrone Juventus as the kings of Serie A.
This appears to confirm that the player is very close to a switch to the Etihad Stadium after a long-running saga, with reports suggesting a transfer could happen at any time.
