Italian-Brazilian, Jorginho is one player that is in demand. The Napoli midfielder has earned rave reviews for his performances for the Partenopei this term, offering solidity in the middle of the park and helping the Naples based outfit challenge for the Serie A title with perennial winners, Juventus.
Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool have been linked to the player, who has been an ever-present for Maurizio Sarri’s team. United need to make a statement next season as City have set the bar for Premier League rivals going into the next campaign, and they have also made some money for their fans who placed some money on City to win the league title via various matched betting platforms.
United need the player as his unique skillset is perhaps the best in the continent. Reports in the Daily Mail suggest that he prefers to play for City, though United must do an Alexis Sanchez on City again. He is the perfect midfielder that is known for his absolutely unbelievable passing accuracy, and his ability to find his teammate in the tightest of spaces. With the future of Belgian player, Marouane Fellaini up in the air and Michael Carrick’s retirement, there are places to be filled in the midfield.
Jorginho is a player that Pep Guardiola praised to the high heavens when his City team were absolutely passed to the brink of exhaustion in a Champions League game away at Napoli, with Jorginho at the height of everything. He will not come cheap, in excess of around £50m. United need a player like him to complement the brawn of Nemanja Matic and the running power of Paul Pogba. Mourinho knows that he needs to win the league to stand any chance of staying at Old Trafford beyond next term.
There are no excuses for Mourinho next term, and getting Jorginho could be another piece of the jigsaw. The midfielder is that good and must be prized away from the Stadio San Paolo.
