Hurrah, according to CalcioNapoli24, Txiki Begiristain and his Napoli counterpart Cristiano Giuntoli have in the past few hours reached an agreement over the transfer of Jorginho.
Today, Giuntoli, Napoli’s Director of Sport, will present the agreed terms to Aurelio De Laurentiis and the parties can then ‘finalise the negotiation’ with an ‘exchange of email’.
Napoli president De Laurentiis will then ‘review’ the agreement carefully before giving his ‘final consent’ to Jorginho to make the move to Manchester City and go through the process of the actual transfer.
With De Laurentiis being De Laurentiis, there’s a possibility something could go wrong at that stage, but it all sounds positive at this point.
The estimated price for Jorhinho to move to Manchester City is €53m including bonuses.
This has been one of the sagas of the transfer summer so far, with the Premier League champions determined not to pay over the odds for the Italian international midfielder.
