Napoli midfielder Jorginho has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester City, but Chelsea fans now have a reason to believe the 26-year-old could make the swap to Stamford Bridge and not the Etihad.
This belief came after Jorginho’s mother started following Chelsea on Instagram amid rumours the midfielder has opted to snub Manchester City and move to west London instead.
The Brazilian-born Italy international is one of European football’s highest rated playmakers after another stellar season in Naples, averaging more passes per game than any other player in Serie A.
Italian newspaper Tuttosport claim Chelsea are preparing a £50m bid for the 26-year-old on Sarri’s orders, with Jorginho having grown extremely close to his old manager.
And eagled-eyed Chelsea fans have discovered the Instagram account of Jorginho’s mother, which is followed by the midfielder himself, and spotted that she has started following Chelsea – but not Manchester City, which has further given fans hope that maybe, just maybe Jorginho will be joining Chelsea.
