Jorginho confessed he will “miss Napoli very much” as he flew out to complete his Chelsea transfer, soon joined by Maurizio Sarri.
The Italy international of Brazilian origin had been on the verge of a move to Manchester City, but changed his destination to Stamford Bridge, where Sarri is due to take over from Antonio Conte in a €65m double deal.
“I will miss Napoli very much after five years spent here… I remain forever bonded to this city,” the midfielder told CalcioNapoli24 as he jetted off to London today.
As he is going to join Chelsea and Coach Sarri is set to take over within days, Jorginho was asked to say hello to the ex-Napoli boss.
“I will do that for you!”
Jorginho was then asked who will take his place in the Napoli side under new Coach Carlo Ancelotti.
“Good question! I have no idea.”
He had one final farewell dinner with his friends in Naples on Tuesday night and it’s rumoured they gave him a care package for his new experience in England.
This included pasta, genuine Neapolitan tomatoes and a Topolino comic book written in English.
