The player’s agent, Joao Santos, is in England and is now waiting for the final OK from Italy, at which point it can be presumed Jorginho will fly into Manchester for his medical and signing formalities.
The 26-year-old has been in his homeland of Brazil with his family enjoying a vacation, and hopefully his next flight will be to Manchester to end this long-running saga.
