Cape Town - Jorginho's agent admits the
Chelsea midfielder had agreed terms with Manchester City before their Premier
League rivals hijacked the move in July.
The Italy international was a priority
target for City boss Pep Guardiola during the recent transfer window and looked
set to join the English champions from Napoli.
However, the Blues suddenly emerged as
suitors amid reports that former Azzurri head coach Maurizio Sarri was about to
replace Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.
Jorginho subsequently snubbed the Citizens
and reunited with Sarri in west London, although Joao Santos revealed his
client did have an agreement in place at the Etihad Stadium.
"It was all done with Jorginho. There
was an agreement, but there was no agreement between the clubs," Santos
told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.
"All parties have to agree, and one
did not. Then Chelsea asked what the situation was after Sarri arrived and
Jorginho went to London."
The 26-year-old made his competitive debut
for the FA Cup champions in the Community Shield and has started all four
league games this season.
