Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis has revealed that former Partenopei manager Maurizio Sarri and midfielder Jorginho are both set to join Chelsea this summer.

De Laurentiis has made it clear that Chelsea are close to finalising a deal for Sarri to take over from his fellow countryman Antonio Conte.

Jorginho has been in advanced talks with Manchester City this summer but the president has revealed that the midfielder is eager to follow Sarri to Chelsea.

“Sarri is close to being new Chelsea manager. My lawyers are in talks with his lawyers to finalise everything,” De Laurentiis announced on Wednesday.

The president has admitted that Napoli will also take Jorginho offer into account, as the Italian star wants to snub Man City for West London move.

“If for personal reasons I won’t get into, the player prefers to live in London rather than in Manchester, I can understand him,” De Laurentiis said.

“If Chelsea pay him more, I can understand it too. So I can just apologize to Khaldoon [Al Mubarak].”

“But it does not depend on me. If Jorginho moves to Chelsea, my agreement with Abramovich does not depend on Sarri becoming their next manager.”

Jorginho joined Napoli in January 2014 from Verona and went on to make 160 appearances at Stadio San Paolo.
