The Italian international also insisted that he is ‘very, very happy’ to have joined Chelsea instead.
Jorginho was signed for Chelsea by the club’s former manager, Maurizio Sarri, for £50million from Napoli in July 2018.
“It was close [for me to join Man City], but it didn’t happen. It is how it works in football sometimes,” Jorginho told BT Sport.
“I am very, very happy at Chelsea. It is a massive club and everyone here at the moment, the atmosphere is so good because everyone is humble.
“That is why everything is going so well.”
