Manchester United target Jorginho has been urged to reject a move to the Premier League... because 'it rains too often'.

The Napoli midfielder has caught the eye of the Old Trafford hierarchy, and suitors from across the city at the Etihad, with his displays in Serie A.

But agent Joao Santos insists his client, 26, is happy in Italy and even managed a dig at the English weather.

"From June he'll have two more years on his contract and maybe we'll start discussing it then, it's pointless messing with his head," he said.

"The contract isn't expiring any time soon, there's time.

"He's happy in Naples, Jorginho is happy and the city is very beautiful.

"Manchester United and Manchester City? When you're playing for the Serie A leaders it's only logical that important teams will ask for updates: for example the length of the contract.

"I'm glad to come here [to Naples] too, it's a very Brazilian climate. In Manchester it rains too often."

Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified Jorginho as a potential replacement for Michael Carrick, who is expected to retire at the end of the season.
