Jorginho captured a beautiful moment of his mother inside Chelsea’s official mega store.
The Brazilian-born Italian international was adored by many including Pep Guardiola and Maurizio Sarri following his performances in midfield last season for Napoli.
He produced heroics in the middle of the park in Italy’s top flight, and will now call Chelsea home after securing a reported £50 million transfer to Stamford Bridge.
The 26-year-old will don the No.5 shirt at Chelsea.
His mother, who played an integral part of his footballing upbringing, was reduced to tears when she saw her son’s jersey in Chelsea’s mega store.
He uploaded a touching video, accompanied with the words: “When you realise that every effort was worth it and it wasn’t just a dream.”
A proud mother. What a beautiful moment.
Anyway, as mentioned, Guardiola was very, very interested in signing Jorginho until he opted for Chelsea.
The Spanish boss admitted his side were close to sealing his transfer.
“We were close but in the end Jorginho decided to stay with Sarri,” he said.
Jorginho reunites with Sarri following their stint together in Naples with Napoli.
Guardiola added: “I’ve said before that I want players who want to come here. He didn’t want that. We tried, we believed it was done but at the last turn he decided on Chelsea.
“It’s quite similar to Alexis Sanchez [for whom City were beaten by Manchester United in January]. Nothing to say but good luck at Chelsea. English football has an exceptional holding midfielder.
“Maybe it was a bit late to announce that but if you decide you don’t come, then don’t come.
“The blow would be to come here when he prefers Chelsea. Nobody put a gun to his head and said, ‘You have to.'”
How will Jorginho fare at Chelsea in the new season?
