Jorginho’s agent claims Manchester United have not made an approach to sign the Napoli midfielder.
The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho seeks a long-term replacement for Michael Carrick, who is retiring at the end of the season.
Napoli, meanwhile, are reportedly in the market for Jorginho’s replacement and have held talks with Sampdoria over a move for their Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira.
But Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, insists United have not made contact about Jorginho.
‘With [Maurizio] Sarri, he has the privilege to play the football he prefers and, in the dressing room, he has become an important element after more than four years,’ he told Radio CRC.
‘My client is a good kid, he is focused on fighting for the Scudetto with his club and plays for one of the top national teams in the world.
‘If a player like that isn’t on the radar of big clubs like Manchester United, then something is wrong.
‘I don’t know if Napoli are talking with Torreira’s agent.
‘I have spoken to [Napoli sporting director Cristiano] Giuntoli three times in the last month and he hasn’t said anything.
‘I can say that no manager of Manchester United has done what Napoli are doing on the Torreira front.’
