Chelsea could swoop for Jorginho to help lure Sarri from Napoli

  Chelsea could swoop for Jorginho to help lure Sarri from 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. City have been desperate to close a deal for Jorginho but at the eleventh hour, it seems Chelsea could swoop, with Sport Italia believing that this would enable smoother negotiations with Napoli regarding the deal for Sarri.

Wow, some really big developments over the last 24 hours or so. Sorry for no video yesterday, I'm back today to give you all the latest Man City news

Chelsea have stolen the march on Manchester City to complete a deal for the Italian midfielder.

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.

Best News @City_Watch. Made my day. Hope Jorginho will be announced as @ManCity player soon later today . He already choosed #6 shirt. Also there's no news of a Jorginho medical which means there's gonna be 3/4 days minimum before he signs.

Jorginho has been keen to make the move to the Premier League, with both Chelsea and City keen to sign him.

Both Maurizio Sarri and Pep Guardiola are known to be huge admirers of the player.

The Italian’s arrival will be a welcomed advantage for Sarri at Stamford Bridge having worked so closely with him at Napoli.

Jorginho helping Chelsea squad to adapt to Sarri's playing style .
Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso says that new Blues signing Jorginho is helping the squad to adapt to new boss Maurizio Sarri’s playing style, the Evening Standard reports. Having played under Sarri for three years at Napoli, Jorginho is using his experience and knowledge of Sarri’s team set up to help and advise the rest of the Chelsea squad. Blues defender Alonso spoke of Jorginho’s help to the club’s website. “He is used to playing this way, and he is going to be a great help for everybody. He is giving us tips to get used to this way of playing.” “We are working on a new formation, a new style that he is asking of us. He wants us to press high, he wants the team to be together, to have possession of the ball.” Jorginho signed for Chelsea shortly after Sarri’s confirmed arrival as the new Blues boss, making his first outing in a Chelsea shirt in Monday’s 1-0 pre-season win over Perth Glory. Jorginho impressed during his 45 minutes on the field alongside fellow midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Ross Barkley. Sarri’s Chelsea begin their Premier League campaign away at Huddersfield Town.
