Napoli midfielder Jorginho has stated that he would choose a move to Manchester City over Manchester United.
The Premier League champions have been given a massive boost in the race of signing arguably the player of the year in the Italian league in the form of Jorginho. A lot of top clubs across the continent are eager to secure the midfield maestro’s services and the competition is quite stiff, but Jorginho has reportedly decided his future already.
Napoli is currently 2nd on the Serie A table and are fighting for the Italian league with five-time current holders Juventus in pole position and Jorginho has played a massive part in helping the Partenopei to challenge for the league. The Italian outfit will have a major task on their hand to keep hold of Jorginho, who is excellent in winning back possession, keeping composure on the ball as well as his passing ability and work-rate.
Manchester United or Manchester City?-
At 26 years of age, Jorginho still has his prime years ahead of him and is keen on playing for one of the best clubs in the world and working with former Barcelona Manager Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City is certainly heading toward success with Spanish manager Pep Guardiola, who recently clinched the Premier League title and also won the League Cup earlier this year. However, City is still in need of a strong defensive midfielder at the base of their midfield which can allow the attackers more freedom.
However, Manchester United is also in dire need of a midfield star with Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba and even Ander Herrera linked with moves away from Old Trafford in the summer. United boss Jose Mourinho will have to make some signings to re-enforce his midfield department.
I think a move for Jorginho to Manchester City would be an extremely beneficial one because the English giants have completely dominated the Premier League this season and could do so for a long time. But they need to keep bringing in high-quality players who can maintain that intensity of top-notch football, a philosophy that has been grounded by Guardiola.
