Agent tells Jorginho to ignore Man Utd: It's always raining there

Napoli midfielder Jorginho is being urged to give Manchester United a swerve.

The Italy U21 international has been linked with United as a replacement for veteran captain Michael Carrick.

But agent Joao Santos confirmed that Jorginho is happy with life in Italy, before taking a dig at the weather conditions in the north of England.

He added: "From June he'll have two more years on his contract and maybe we'll start discussing it then, it's pointless messing with his head.

"The contract isn't expiring any time soon, there's time.

"He's happy in Naples, Jorginho is happy and the city is very beautiful.

"Manchester United and Manchester City? When you're playing for the Serie A leaders it's only logical that important teams will ask for updates: for example the length of the contract.

"I'm glad to come here [to Naples] too, it's a very Brazilian climate.

"In Manchester it rains too often."
