Jorginho agent reveals how Chelsea beat City to his signature

Jorginho agent reveals how Chelsea beat City to his signature

The Blues have been drawn against PAOK Salonika, BATE Borisov and Vidi in the group stage of that competition, while Premier League rivals Manchester United and Tottenham look forward to meetings with the likes of Juventus and Barcelona.

"I still have one year of contract, plus possibly another year".

Alonso was linked with a return to La Liga in the summer, with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona mentioned as potential destinations, but he says he never thought about leaving Stamford Bridge.

Four games into the Premier League season, the London side sit second on the table having won all of their games.

Courtois added: "I am now experiencing on a daily basis that Sergio Ramos is the best centre-back in the world".

Despite easing into English football impressively, though, Jorginho admitted that he will always love Napoli and that the region will always be a special place to him. "Everybody knows this, of course, but I am enjoying it a lot", he said.

Child killed as tropical storm Gordon makes landfall on US Gulf Coast
Early Tuesday, Gordon was packing maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour - short of the 74-mph threshold for a hurricane. By Wednesday afternoon the numbers were down to about 5,800 in Alabama, 3,000 in MS and a little more than 2,000 in Florida.

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

Moses played as a right wingback under former boss Antonio Conte, who preferred a 3-5-2 formation. The Premier League is lovely. I miss the sun, the food, my friends and the warmth of the people.

Jorginho moved to Napoli from his first club Verona in January 2014 and after an indifferent start under Rafa Benitez, emerged as a key member of the first-team during Sarri's three seasons in charge.

"Chelsea then jumped in and with the arrival of Maurizio Sarri, Jorginho chose to join the Blues".

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.

Jorginho, who accompanied Maurizio Sarri from Napoli and signed for Chelsea in the summer Premier League transfer window, has quickly established himself as a central figure in the new system at Stamford Bridge. But, comparing the level of the two clubs will surely give way to more irate Chelsea fans.
