| Jorginho: The Andrea Pirlo-style midfielder set for Manchester City
| sbobet link He's been compared to Andrea Pirlo and Pep Guardiola has called him a "marvellous" midfielder, but how would Jorginho fit at Manchester City?. The Italy international could become City's first signing of the summer after his agent said he will join if a deal can be reached with Napoli. So what are his strengths and weaknesses and what will he bring to the Etihad? We take a look…
What's his background?Jorginho was born in Brazil, but moved to Italy as a 15-year-old. He was snapped up by Verona where he made his way up through the youth ranks before being loaned out to Serie C2 (fourth tier) side Sambonifacese in 2010. He made 31 appearances for Sambonifacese before returning to Verona, helping the club win promotion to Serie A in 2012/13 before leaving midway through the following season - after scoring seven times in 18 appearances - to join Napoli for €5.5m.
Upon signing for Napoli, Jorginho was asked about his role and qualities. sbobet link "I like to control the ball and analyse the game. I have grown up as a player watching many champions like Pirlo and Xavi. I have watched them and tried to learn from how they do things." Jorginho wouldn't take long to settle into his new team, making 15 Serie A appearances in the second half of the 2013/14 season and starting in the Coppa Italia final as Napoli beat Fiorentina.
Suited to Sarri styleDespite a positive start at Napoli, the following season would not go as smoothly for Jorginho under Rafa Benitez. He was in and out of the starting line-up in the opening months of the 2014/15 season, played out of position on the right of midfield and spent much of the latter stages on the bench. The situation was, in fact, so bleak that Jorginho's agent said in the summer of 2015 that "if Benitez had stayed, he'd probably have left". Benitez, though, departed to join Real Madrid and was replaced by Maurizio Sarri. The arrival of Sarri, who spent a brief spell in charge of Verona in 2008, proved to be key for Jorginho's development. sbo bz sbobet
