Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed midfielder Jorginho has chosen Chelsea over Manchester City, and will join along with Maurizio Sarri.
The film mogul told the Italian press that he found an agreement with City fifteen days ago, but the player wants to live in London.
“If for personal reasons I won’t get into, the player prefers to live in London rather than in Manchester, I can understand him,” De Laurentiis said.
“If Chelsea pay him more, I can understand it too. So I can just apologize to Khaldoon [Al Mubarak].
“But it does not depend on me. If Jorginho moves to Chelsea, my agreement with Abramovich does not depend on Sarri becoming their next manager.”
