Liverpool on red alert as Man United plotting bid for dream target No.8

Napoli reportedly fear Jorginho’s departure from the club is inevitable, with Manchester United the most likely destination for the Italian.

The Brazil-born midfielder has been heavily linked with Liverpool and with Lucas Torreira set to arrive at the Serie A club from Sampdoria, it’s thought Jorginho’s exit could be on the cards along with Tottenham Hotspur target Amadou Diawara.

However, Napoli are expecting Jorginho to end up in the clutches of Manchester United rather than Liverpool and are willing to sell him for a huge fee, according to La Reppublica.

If Jose Mourinho’s team make an exorbitant offer, the club will be forced to let him leave, which has left Napoli chiefs convinced his departure is inevitable.

Though Manchester United are named as the side most likely to snare him, other big clubs are in the mix to land the 26-year-old. However, United’s financial clout makes them a force to be reckoned with in the transfer market and Jorginho’s future may well lie at Old Trafford.
