Man City Transfer target Jorginho is all set to snub Pep Guardiola and sign for Chelsea. The deal is rumored to be in the region of 60 Million Pounds furthermore, the deal will also see Napoli release Maurizio Sarri and bring an end to Chelsea’s manager debacle. Sarri’s move to Chelsea has seemed inevitable since late May and finalizing the move would be a huge boost for the West London Club.
Napoli President, De Laurentis, confirms that Jorginho will join Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri is very close also. £60m deal all round.

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis revealed the complexity of the Transfer and Man City’s Initial involvement “These offers did not start from Chelsea but from Manchester City. As a matter of fact, I will apologize to Khaldoon [Al Mubarak], because I found a deal with Khaldoon 15 days ago. He called me, we spoke on the phone and I said, ‘ok, I don’t agree with you on A, B, C’. ‘Let’s solve the situation the two of us’, he told me. And we did it, we solved it.
De Laurentiis revealed that it was Jorginho who took the final call “However if for personal reasons I won’t get into, the player prefers to live in London rather than in Manchester, I can understand him.”
Jorginho would be an excellent addition to Chelsea’s Midfield, his passing accuracy, and defensive abilities would add an extra dimension to Chelsea’s predictable Midfield. According to Squawka, Jorginho completed the most passes in Europe’s Top 5 division completing 2,860 passes and averaged one pass every 50 seconds. A certain upgrade to Timoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater.
Jorginho played more passes in the league in 2017/18 than another player in Europe's top five divisions.
