The Italian club value Jorginho at £50 million but City are not willing to shell out more than £35 million on the defensive midfielder.
Confirming Chelsea are close to finally making a breakthrough, De Laurentiis said: "The Sarri deal is in the home stretch, it depends on him".
The lanky Spaniard, who joined the Blues for a club-record fee of £60 million past year, didn't have the best debut season in the English top-flight, ending the 2017-18 campaign with 15 goals in 48 appearances (all competitions).
Chelsea have been in talks with both Napoli and Antonio Conte as they try and sort their managerial situation. Chelsea's lack of Champions League football next season could tempt Hazard to look elsewhere, although he is reportedly third on Real's wishlist, behind PSG duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

The club would need to pay at least another £5m in salary for Sarri.
Conte has been overseeing Chelea's preseason training preparations.
Chelsea are preparing for their first pre-season fixture against Perth Glory on July 23 before they venture off for the International Champions Cup where they do battle with Arsenal, Inter Milan and Sevilla.
