'Jorginho agreed to join Manchester City'

Posted September 07, 2018

Italian news source Calcionews24 via the Express have stated that Premier League winning boss Antonio Conte is viewed as a potential replacement - but Roma would have to fork out on releasing him from his Blues deal - which still 10 more months to run, valued at £9 million-a-season.

Following the arrival of Sarri and return to a four-man defence, Alonso was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge over the summer - with Real Madrid and PSG both reportedly interested - but he was keen to dismiss that rumour.

Chelsea FC have made a solid start to the new campaign under Sarri and have won all four of their opening four games to leave them joint top of the Premier League table. "Everybody knows this, of course, but I am enjoying it a lot", he said.

"Serie A will always be one of the best leagues in the world".

And after the victory the 26-year-old aimed a few barbed comments at Chelsea, as reported in the Daily Star.

'There's a difference in the rhythm and physicality in the Premier League, I'm getting along well. The Premier League is attractive.

Naples is a attractive place. I miss the sun, the food, my friends and the warmth of the people.

Moses, 27, who recently quit worldwide football so as to focus on his club career, has made only a substitute appearance in the Premier League for "The Blues" this season.

Jorginho agreed to join Manchester City in the summer, but ultimately signed for Chelsea, because City failed to sanction a deal with Napoli, his agent Joao Santos, has revealed.

"Then Chelsea asked what the situation was after Sarri arrived and Jorginho went to London".

N'Golo Kante and Jorginho are, arguably, undroppable at the moment and the likes of Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ross Barkley and Fabregas will jostle it out to make the last spot in the three-man midfield.
