The media wave has been awash with reports of Jorginho joining Chelsea and now the president of the Naples based Seria A club has confirmed that the playmaker heading to West London. He went further to reveal why the midfielder snubbed a move to Manchester City for Chelsea, according to reports.
Yaya Toure called time on his spell with Manchester City and the Citizens identified Jorginho as the man to fill in his boots. But Chelsea have stolen a march on them to his signature as he was spotted earlier today heading for London.
While the fans of Chelsea remained a tad skeptical over the player’s reported arrival, Aurelio De Laurentiis has explained why the star prefers a move with Chelsea.
De Laurentiis said: “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.
