Man City furious at ‘unprofessional’ Napoli over Jorginho and updated midfielder plans

Manchester City are said to be ‘furious’ at ‘unprofessional’ Napoli for going back on an agreement to sell Jorginho to the Premier League champions, after the midfielder today joined Chelsea.

According to several northern reporters, in what has all the signs of a briefing from the club, City had agreed a €50million deal with Napoli, and believe Jorginho had his heart set on a move to the Etihad.

City claim Jorginho was ‘bullied’ by Napoli to instead join Chelsea, who offered more money and eventually landed the player along with Maurizio Sarri.

Pep Guardiola is very specific about the type of player he wants, and with Jorginho no longer an option, reports claim that City may now decide against buying a central midfielder, instead using the players they have and moving Fabian Delph back into his natural role more regularly.

Mateo Kovacic of Real Madrid has been heavily linked, but the Blues have played down those rumours. As things stand, City could make just one major signing this summer, that being Riyad Mahrez, and will hope that is enough to compete on all four fronts next season.
