Agent: 'Napoli could sacrifice Jorginho'

Jorginho’s agent has other clubs on high alert after warning Napoli “could be sacrificed to make way for an investment like Lucas Torreira.”

The midfielder has been repeatedly linked with a Premier League switch to Manchester United or Manchester City.

“He has been there for four years now and feels Neapolitan,” agent Joao Santos told Radio CRC.

“It’s an issue of mentality, it’s a family at Napoli and they all play for each other. Right now everyone is concentrated on the Scudetto, an objective they’ve been missing for 30 years.

“I think we’ll discuss a renewal at the end of the season, as it’s not the moment to talk about that, because he still has a long contract.

“He wants to stay, although we’ll have to see if Napoli agree with that. If a player like Torreira arrives from Sampdoria, then that will require an important investment and Jorginho could be sacrificed to make way.

“I think they’d rather sell Jorginho than Amadou Diawara, who is younger.”
