Jorginho has started the Premier League season in emphatic fashion, almost setting a new Premier League record for the number of passes from a player in a match against Newcastle United.
Guardiola will no doubt be frustrated to have missed out on the Italy international. His agent has now revealed just how close the deal was to being completed.
He’s quoted by Sky Sports saying:
“It was all done with Jorginho. There was an agreement, but there was no agreement between the clubs. All parties have to agree, and one did not.”
Sorry, City, he’s ours!
