If My Client Doesn't Move To Man City, He Won't Be Happy

Jorginho "won't be very happy" if he misses out on a move to Manchester City, admits his agent, with the Premier League champions still €10 million (£9m/$12m) short of meeting Napoli's valuation.

The Serie A side are reportedly holding out for £60m for their star midfielder but City have so far offered only £40m, ensuring Jorginho's future remains uncertain as a breakthrough has yet to be made - despite Santos travelling to England earlier this week.

Sky Sports News reported in April that City had identified the 26-year-old Italy global, who was born in Brazil, as one of their primary transfer targets for this summer.

The ESPN FC panel assess the rumours linking Napoli's Jorginho and Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez with moves to Manchester City.

The Premier League champions are desperate to land the Italy global this summer and have already had one offer knocked back.

Napoli rejected that bid but, according to Sky Sports, Manchester City have returned with a new proposal.

Wings Aphiwe Dyantyi and S'bu Nkosi will be complete unknowns, as will outside centre Lukhanyo Am. Handre Pollard will start at flyhalf and Faf de Klerk at scrumhalf.

"Now City are working on Plan B. The player is waiting for Napoli's decision".

"Jorginho is a professional, but this is the opportunity of a lifetime for him and his family". We won't be hypocrites here, any player would love to go and play under Pep Guardiola.

Jorginho's agent met with Manchester City officials on Thursday to find a way to break the deadlock, but according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato, the Premier League champions are now looking at other options.

"I don't have to say anything to the President, because if he is convinced that it's a good deal to sell, then he will".

He scored four goals in 39 appearances last season, and has scored six goals in 160 games for Napoli since signing from Verona in 2013.
