Napoli midfielder Jorginho has attracted interest from Manchester United with their manager Jose Mourinho said to be interested in the player, according to Goal.

Whilst United have been heavily linked with Jorginho, his agent has warned the player off moving to England this summer.

United have got plans in place to compete with Manchester City after finding themselves already out of the title race this season, despite sending over £200 million last summer.

Talks over a possible move to Manchester have already been held and the player’s representatives have reportedly traveled to England to agree the terms of the deal.

Joao Santos spoke about the current situation of the Napoli midfielder as speculation regarding a move increases.

From June he’ll have two more years on his contract and maybe we’ll start discussing it then, it’s pointless messing with his head. The contract isn’t expiring any time soon, there’s time. He’s happy in Naples, Jorginho is happy and the city is very beautiful. Manchester United and Manchester City? When you’re playing for the Serie A leaders, it’s only logical that important teams will ask for updates: for example the length of the contract.

He continued and went onto add.

I’m glad to come here [to Naples] too, it’s a very Brazilian climate. In Manchester it rains too often!
