Potential Man United transfer boost over ideal Paul Pogba partner – Report

Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are excited for what the future holds, as supporters can come to expect a whole load of business in the summer months. 

Old Trafford has come to witness some of the world’s greatest spectacles in times gone by, but Jose Mourinho’s legacy is yet to live up to the brilliance of the Sir Alex Ferguson era. Indeed, with our local Mancunians urging their beloved United to reach the heights of yesteryear, they seem to have already received a boost in their pursuit of a summer target, as according to reports in the Sun, Jorginho could be sacrificed by current club Napoli.

The defensive midfielder is said to be on United’s radar, with his entourage reportedly having made the trip to Manchester last month about possible talks. And, despite the Brazilian currently being happy with playing his football for Napoli, his agent has stated that the midfielder could be sold by the Serie A club this summer.

Although, it’s the player’s current satisfaction with life in Naples that could be the biggest complication for United, as his agent Joao Santos shared a few comments:

“I think we’ll discuss a renewal at the end of the season, as it’s not the moment to talk about that, because he still has a long contract.

“He wants to stay, although we’ll have to see if Napoli agree with that. If a player like Torreira arrives from Sampdoria, then that will require an important investment and Jorginho could be sacrificed to make way.

“I think they’d rather sell Jorginho than Amadou Diawara, who is younger.”

Therefore, it looks as if the future of the 26-year-old lays heavily in the hands of his current club Napoli, with possible summer transfer window additions paving the way for a move to the Premier League.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Positive news for Manchester United, for the player’s agent to state that Jorginho is likely to be sacrificed by his current club, meaning that he could be making his way to Old Trafford in the summer. Although, the Brazilian is still happy with life in Italy, which could potentially mean that he secures a new deal in Naples. So, it’s a waiting game that United are going to have to take part in, with Napoli holding the keys to any movement on the transfer front.

A wonderful passer of the ball, he’d be a wonderful signing to help slot in alongside Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba.
