Jorginho 'promises' to make Chelsea move

  Jorginho 'promises' to make Chelsea move Napoli midfielder Jorginho has reportedly promised to join Chelsea this summer, with the Blues set to beat Manchester City to his signature. Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the Napoli player will be included as part of the deal to take Maurizio Sarri to Stamford Bridge this summer. Chelsea are reportedly ready to pay a combined €65 million, with €8 million of that being made up through bonuses to land Jorginho and Sarri. Both Chelsea and Manchester City have been linked with a move for Jorginho this summer, but Pep Guardiola’s men were looking set to sign the player. The Italian international played a key role in Sarri’s Napoli side and Guardiola was said to be a fan. An announcement is believed to be close, with reports suggesting Wednesday could be the decisive day. The deal to bring Sarri to Stamford Bridge has been delayed since the end of the season with Chelsea locked in negotiations with Napoli.

Chelsea could make a big-money move to pip Manchester City to the signing of Napoli star Jorginho, according to reports from Italy.

The Blues are in the process of pushing to appoint Maurizio Sarri as the club’s new manager but are still locked in talks with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, despite the Italian having been sacked last month.

Although Sarri’s €8m release clause at the Stadio San Paolo has reached its expiration, he is still technically under contract at Napoli, thereby leading Chelsea to continue talks with the Serie A club over releasing him from his deal.

This is where a potential deal for Jorginho comes in, with Sport Italia (h/t Football Italia) indicating that a €60m deal for the midfielder would act as a sweetener in Chelsea’s pursuit to convince Napoli to release Sarri.

Chelsea finalising double deal for Sarri and Jorginho

  Chelsea finalising double deal for Sarri and Jorginho Chelsea are set to complete the double swoop of Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri and the Italian side’s star player Jorginho, the telegraph reports. Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has claimed that the £50million double swoop is close to completion. Talks have been ongoing between Chelsea and Napoli for the Blues to appoint Sarri as current manager Antonio Conte’s successor since the end of last season. It now seems that the two sides are set to agree a £50m fee, plus £7m in bonuses, to take both Sarri and midfielder Jorginho to Stamford Bridge. Manchester City had been widely expected all summer to sign Jorginho, and they are yet to give up on trying to gain his signature with personal terms between the player and City having already been agreed. De Laurentiis spoke of the negotiations between Chelsea and Napoli nearing a solution. “The Sarri deal is in the homestretch, it depends on him.” “I’ve laid down my conditions. It’s all in the hands of lawyers. Jorginho? We said to ourselves, ‘if Jorginho has any requests, we’ll take them into account.’” “For that, I’ll have to apologise to Manchester City. However, if the player would rather live in London than Manchester, I can understand that.” “If Chelsea are paying him even more, I can understand that too. Jorginho and Sarri together again? Jorginho would go to Chelsea regardless of Sarri.” Chelsea are still yet to terminate the final year of Conte’s managerial contract, which is worth £9m, but it is looking increasingly likely that the Italian will not be in the Chelsea dug out come the start of the new season.
