‘Jorginho? He’ll be wearing blue…’

Jorginho’s agent confirms the Napoli man is still “waiting for news” on Manchester City - “the only certainty is he’ll be wearing blue next season…”

The English champions are keen to sign the Italian international this summer, but so far they’ve refused to meet the Partenopei’s €60m valuation.

“I’m waiting for news from Naples,” Joao Santos confirmed on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“As far as I understand the two parties are negotiating, so we’re waiting for news. The lad is in Fortaleza, on holiday with his family.

“An agreement with City? Yes, it’s there, it’s obvious that there’s been contact and now we’re waiting for things to be resolves in a way which will make everyone happy.

“Playing in the Premier League, for City, for [Pep] Guardiola… these are important motivations, obviously, but it all depends on [President Aurelio] De Laurentiis finding a deal with the English club. The only certainty is he’ll be wearing blue next season!

“Everything is in the hands of De Laurentiis and the City President. Everything could be done in one day, 10… I don’t know.

“I know that City have three names for their midfield and Jorginho is one of them. Guardiola has been following him for a year.”
