‘No discussions for Jorginho renewal’

Jorginho’s agent reveals he’s not in Italy to discuss a new Napoli contract but his client “is happy” and “in Manchester it rains too often”.

It was reported this morning that the Brazilian born Italian international’s representative is in Italy to discuss an extension, but the man himself insists he’s only in Naples to watch the Lazio game.

“Jorginho is fine, he’s always at Napoli’s disposal,” Joao Santos assured on Radio Crc.

“He’s fine with Sarri, he plays his role and he’s happy. On Saturday I will be at the San Paolo stadium, a very important match awaits us, we hope Fiorentina will succeed in getting a result against Juventus.

“Right now I’m just here to see the Lazio game, we’re not talking about a renewal yet because we want to focus on the league.

“From June he’ll have two years on his contract and maybe we’ll start discussing it then, it’s pointless messing with his head.

“The contract isn’t expiring any time soon, there’s time. He’s happy in Naples, Jorginho is happy and the city is very beautiful.

“Manchester United and Manchester City? When you’re playing for the Serie A leaders it’s only logical that important teams will ask for updates: for example on the length of the contract.

“I’m glad to come here [to Naples] too, it’s a very Brazilian climate. In Manchester it rains too often!”
