Cape Town - Napoli midfielder
Jorginho could be on his way to Premier League champions Manchester City
in the off-season, according to his agent Joao Santos.
The 26-year-old is reportedly a transfer target for City, who may
need to fork out around £56 million for his serves, but his agent has
revealed that the deal hinges on whether Napoli agree to sell him.
Jorginho has two years left on his contract with the Partenopei.
"Jorginho is still under contract but if Napoli finds an agreement
with City, the player will go to Manchester," said Santos, as quoted by
"Finding an agreement with the English club will not be a problem considering the importance of the team.
"But, I repeat, that will depend on the decisions of Napoli as the player is tied for another two years.
"City are the champions of England and are one of the top European
clubs. If Napoli and City find a solution, we can talk about it.
Otherwise, he will be happy to continue in Naples.
"At the moment, I have not heard anything from the leadership of
Napoli. I hope to hear from the director and maybe in the next few days I
will be in Naples to talk about it."
The defensive midfielder has made 38 appearances for Napoli across
all competitions this season, contributing with four goals and four
