Jorginho wants €20 million release clause

The agent of Napoli midfielder Jorginho has admitted that he wants a release clause of just €20 million to be added into any new contract with the Serie A club.

The midfielder has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the last few months, with both Manchester clubs and Liverpool thought to be interested in signing the Italy international.

His agent claims that while he hasn’t received a formal offer from any club in the Premier League about his client, he also hasn’t received an improved deal from Napoli.

However, when he hinted that there have been talks with the Serie A club, who want to include an €100m release clause, something that his agent doesn’t agree with:

“I was in Manchester for several days and I have to say that Jorginho did better against England,” Joao Santos told Radio Crc.

“Future in England? He has a certain value for Napoli, a certain figure that almost only Premier League clubs can afford.

“Moreover, he can’t be sold to another club in Italy. He’s being followed by big teams and that’s normal because he plays at the highest levels for Napoli, plus we’re talking about an international player now.

“To date, no official offers have arrived. Jorginho’s only thinking about Napoli and we must wait until the end of the season to make certain assessments.

“As for Napoli, we haven’t received a contract offer from them yet. Release clause? I don’t agree with them.

“Napoli want to set it at €100m, while we want it at €20m. It’s best to just not put one in. Torreira? It’s only right that every big team want more players in the same position so as to make their squad bigger.”
