Jorginho would make a fine signing for Manchester City

Napoli came immensely close to sealing their first ever Serie A title in over two decades this season and ran dominant giants Juventus incredibly close in a tight title race.

At one point, Napoli were just one point adrift from the Turin giants heading into the final month of the season after beating Juve 1-0 in an away fixture against the Serie A champions.

Jorginho has established himself as one of Europe’s most talented holding midfielders this season and it is no surprise that Pep Guardiola and Manchester City have come knocking for him given the departure of club legend and central midfielder Yaya Toure this month.

The previously mentioned report has noted that Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos has stated that crunch talks will be held in the coming weeks over the Italian’s future.
