According to various reports in Italy and England, in particular by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea are trying to “beat” Manchester City in the race to sign SS Napoli midfielder Jorginho.
The player already has an agreement with Pep Guardiola‘s team, but the two clubs haven’t agreed a fee to complete the midfielder’s move to Etihad Stadium.
So now Chelsea are offering more money than Manchester City to sign Jorginho, a part of which, as it is understood, would also be used to pay the clause and free Maurizio Sarri from his contract with SS Napoli.
Moreover, midfielder Jean-Michael Seri has been reportedly spotted in London ahead of a potential move to Chelsea. And this could make a move for Jorginho more unlikely.
