Chelsea look to hijack Man City's move for Jorginho

  Chelsea look to hijack Man City's move for Jorginho Chelsea have made ‘a late bid’ to hijack Jorginhos move to Premier League rivals Manchester City, according to reports. Jorginho has already agreed personal terms with Man City and is apparently keen to make a switch to the Etihad, but no fee has been agreed between Napoli and the Premier League champions at this time. Chelsea have reportedly made a late swoop to sign the Italian international and with Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri set to be named as the club’s new manager this week, they are hoping that the 26-year-old will decide that a move to Stamford Bridge is the better option for him at this stage of his career.

Chelsea could make a big-money move to pip Manchester City to the signing of Napoli star Jorginho, according to reports from Italy.

The Blues are in the process of pushing to appoint Maurizio Sarri as the club’s new manager but are still locked in talks with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, despite the Italian having been sacked last month.

Although Sarri’s €8m release clause at the Stadio San Paolo has reached its expiration, he is still technically under contract at Napoli, thereby leading Chelsea to continue talks with the Serie A club over releasing him from his deal.

This is where a potential deal for Jorginho comes in, with Sport Italia (h/t Football Italia) indicating that a €60m deal for the midfielder would act as a sweetener in Chelsea’s pursuit to convince Napoli to release Sarri.

Jorginho 'promises' to make Chelsea move

  Jorginho 'promises' to make Chelsea move Napoli midfielder Jorginho has reportedly promised to join Chelsea this summer, with the Blues set to beat Manchester City to his signature. Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the Napoli player will be included as part of the deal to take Maurizio Sarri to Stamford Bridge this summer. Chelsea are reportedly ready to pay a combined €65 million, with €8 million of that being made up through bonuses to land Jorginho and Sarri. Both Chelsea and Manchester City have been linked with a move for Jorginho this summer, but Pep Guardiola’s men were looking set to sign the player. The Italian international played a key role in Sarri’s Napoli side and Guardiola was said to be a fan. An announcement is believed to be close, with reports suggesting Wednesday could be the decisive day. The deal to bring Sarri to Stamford Bridge has been delayed since the end of the season with Chelsea locked in negotiations with Napoli.
