Manchester United manager José Mourinho is ready to do all he could to sign Liverpool target this summer and Napoli midfielder Jorginho as he is willing to spend a whopping sum of £50million for the player’s service in the summer.
The Red Devils have been less impressive in the middle of the pitch throughout this season with Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic both look off-peak in most of the matches played by Mourinho’s men this season.
With Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera set to leave while Michael Carrick set to retire by the end of the season, the Portuguese is left with no option but to get another player who could operate in any position at the center of the pitch and Mourinho feels Jorginho is the right man who could bring more quality to his team ahead of next season.
According to Daily Star, Napoli who have refused to sell the Italian despite intense pressure from Mourinho and Klopp during last transfer market could be tempted with a £50m-offer from Manchester United.
Jorginho has been one of the most important player in the Serie A side as he is currently helping Napoli sit comfortably in the first position ahead of Juventus who have been the League’s Champions for five consecutive seasons.

Jorginho is not known as a player with lots of goals and assists but his importance to Maurizio Sarri’s side cannot be overestimated.
Jose Mourinho will hope to convince the player to switch to Old Trafford just as he did to Paul Pogba who joined the Red Devils in 2016 despite interests from PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Liverpool are also interested in the Italian midfielder as Klopp wants to get a good replacement for Phillippe Coutinho who joined Barcelona in the winter.
