Manchester City 'on verge' of sealing deal for Napoli midfielder Jorginho

Jorginho to Man City Napoli

And negotiations with Napoli for Jorginho, who is regarded by many as the best midfielder in European football right now have been far from smooth.

Talks between City and Napoli have hit stalemate with the clubs still around £9million apart and the Italians demanding over £60m for the Italy worldwide.

Jorginho's agent has admitted his client would be disappointed if the deal does not go through.

"Jorginho is a Napoli player".

City have been trying to reach a compromise over the size of the fee demanded by Napoli for more than a week, but there appears to have been significant progress made over the weekend.

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

Players will even see the characters' facial expressions changing dynamically - fierce scowls, pained grimaces and more. More fighters will join the final roster, including both fighters from previous entries and completely new characters.

Liverpool have also been credited with an interest but Jurgen Klopp's acquisition of Fabinho, and the imminent arrival of Naby Keita, means that the German manager probably won't renew an interest in the 26-year-old Napoli star - but Tottenham should.

Jorginho's agent, Joao Santos, has issued a warning to Napoli that the midfielder will "not be very happy" if a move to Manchester City fails to come to fruition this summer.

"Manchester City? We must not be hypocrites, any player would like to go and have a starting position with Guardiola".

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

They have already lost out on one of their key targets in Brazilian midfielder Fred to their city rivals Manchester United.
