Jorginho’s agent has confirmed that there are “several clubs” interested in signing the Italy international amid reports linking him with Manchester United.

There have been reports that both Manchester United and Manchester City are looking into potential moves to land the 26-year-old this summer following his strong form for Napoli.

Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for midfield reinforcements this summer, with Michael Carrick set to retire at the end of the season and Marouane Fellaini’s future still in doubt.

Jorginho has been touted as a target for the Red Devils, and now the player’s representative has responded to suggestions that he could be on his way out of Napoli this summer.

Speaking in an interview with Radio Kiss Kiss, agent Joao Santos said: “I’ll talk with the club because Jorginho has another two years on his contract.

“But there are also several clubs interested in him, and we have to understand if Napoli want to move forward with their starters or not.”

Jorginho has been in good form for Napoli this season, scoring two goals and making four assists in 30 Serie A games for the Italian club.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Brighton and Hove Albion on Friday night.

The Red Devils are aiming to finish in second place in the Premier League table and also win the FA Cup in Jose Mourinho’s second campaign in charge at the club.
