Napoli president De Laurentiis: Sarri homestretch; Jorginho also going to Chelsea

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis admits Jorginho is snubbing Manchester City to join Chelsea.

And he revealed Maurizio Sarri's move to Chelsea also in it's "homestretch".

"The Sarri deal is in the homestretch, it depends on him," De Laurentiis said.

“I've laid down my conditions. It's all in the hands of lawyers. Jorginho? We said to ourselves, 'If Jorginho has any requests, we'll take them into account'.

“For that, I'll have to apologise to Manchester City. However, if the player would rather live in London than Manchester, I can understand that.

“If Chelsea are paying him even more, I can understand that too. Jorginho and Sarri together again? Jorginho would go to Chelsea regardless of Sarri."
