Jorginho Completes £50m Move to Chelsea

Recommended Posts

City rumored to be close to signing Jorginho. He and his representatives met with Tixi last weekend. 

 

Strengthening after a title win? Madness!

Joyce saying City have come in late for Jorginho and may have sealed the deal. 

Dissapointing if true but oh well, I trust Klopp to find a excellent alternative.

If true it lends a lot more credence to the Neves stuff, although it's a lot more of an unknown player though. Buying from Napoli is hard though, they almost always get themselves a good deal. Citeh are always in a position of power if they want one of their players imo.

Bit of a let down if we can't get Jorginho, but it's city so they have the best hand. 

Like MadLad said, I'm beginning to trust Klopp with every signing now, it's been a while since we bought a flop.

Manchester City are keen on signing Napoli midfielder Jorginho, Sky Sports News understands.

The Italy international has been monitored by City for a while and he is on their list of summer targets.

The 26-year-old has five international caps and some reports claim City have already made enquiries with the Serie A club as to his availability.

A player we should be all over yet sadly our board have their eyes on a 40 million bid for Livermore

Liverpool were 'keen' since January I think as well. Definitely good for either team to be honest.

If Jorginho is going to City, then it means Fred is probably headed to United. I mean, even City has a budget, right? xD

Not really because they're another Gulf State owned club. The only budget City and PSG adhere to is the one the authorities stipulate.  They're another club under investigation although not to the extent their French sister is.

Jorginho would be a very good signing in my view.  Brilliant player in the correct system which City do use as Napoli do.

Pep Guardiola told a Monday Night Football special Manchester City cannot afford to match last summer's big spending. Not sure this would be a priority if that's the case.

I've got a feeling City are going to go for a marquee striker signing.  A big name in that respect!  Although with Guardiola's obsession with midfielders and that he always feels he doesn't have enough, who knows.

Not many marquee striker's around at the moment though mate - so not sure where they would get one from that's attainable.

The only one I can think of that would be "gettable" is Lewandowski but he is not even in the realms of fitting into a style like the one Pep employs at Man City and I think they had issues with each other at Bayern if I'm not mistaken.

One that I do think would fit in but has ruined his career in various ways would've been Karim Benzema... But that would be going backwards. 

Maybe Neymar? :o

Playing the false 9 is something Guardiola absolutely adores as it means having that extra man in midfield and he did it with Messi at Barça.

Yeah Lewandowski seems to be the only one that can be prised away but I think if he's on the move a certain club in Madrid would have to be a front runner.

Could definitely see Man City wanting Neymar, maybe not this summer, but surely got to be a possibility down the line.

What about Icardi, could that be a fit?

Guardiola had Icardi in the Barcelona youths when he was coach there (Icardi was a La Masia youth) and if he didn't want him then, I doubt anything has changed as Pep isn't one to forgive and forget... Plus Icardi seems to be very rebellious and that is a definite no-no for Guardiola.

Neymar doesn't seem to be leaving PSG this summer but I can see Manchester City really putting everything into it and challenging Real Madrid for the marquee signing.  With Neymar you don't only get the obvious potential (let's leave out all the other negative crap that surrounds him personally and with his entourage), but also the fact that in effect it isn't spending even if it would cost a massive fortune... His brand name earns you that back and more at the click of a finger.  It makes sense if he (Neymar) is willing to stop being an idiot and concentrate on what the coach says and football in general... It's a big ask from Neymar although greater feats have been achieved like controlling influenza.

I understand that sentiment... Knowing what's known now, I wouldn't have him either.  Maybe Mbappé?

Would love Mbappe, he's going to be the best striker in the game in a few years with Jesus

No chance you get either this summer though, that’s the point I was making to Balon, can’t see many attainable top level forwards available

Kane would be difficult but HRH Prince Mansour indirectly own's PSG ;)

If City want Kane they will sign him.

I don't think he suits them at all though!

Joao Santos, the agent of Napoli midfielder and Manchester City target Jorginho, has confirmed that he is in talks with Manchester City and if they can reach an agreement with Napoli, the player will join the Premier League champions.

Speaking to CalcioNapoli24, Santos made it clear that a move to the Etihad for Jorginho is well and truly on – but only if the two clubs can reach an agreement.

"If Napoli reach an agreement with Manchester City, a deal will be done. I’m talking to City, reaching an agreement with them will not be a problem considering the importance of the team.

“But I repeat, it will depend on the decisions of Napoli, as the player is under contract with the Azzurri for two more years.

“City are the champions of England and one of Europe’s top clubs.

Good luck in negotiating with ADL... He will squeeze you like a ripe juicy sweet orange before he gives his nod.

Apparently we've dropped our interest as Napoli's talks with Citeh have been more fruitful than our own & City are basically nailed on to get him.
