Italy-bound? - Jorginho's agent fuels transfer speculation amid Juventus interest

20 Jun 2019, 20:20

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is ready to quit Stamford Bridge and follow Maurizio Sarri to Juventus, according to reports. 

The Italian moved to the English capital together with Sarri from Napoli, and with the Italian manager signing a three-year contract with the Italian champions, it's understood Jorginho will want to move and reunite with his boss once again. 

The player's agent, Joao Santos, has done little to rubbish the rumours, insisting the player is willing to join the Italian giants despite having a four-year contract with Chelsea. 

"Chelsea have a four-year contract with the lad, We’ll wait a few days to figure out whether there is any truth in this interest mentioned in the papers," Santos told Tuttomercatoweb.

"His past at Napoli won’t be an issue, because Jorginho is a professional. Right now, Jorginho is happy at Chelsea. He found a great atmosphere and we can’t really say that he’d like to go elsewhere, but anything can happen in the transfer market. We’ll wait and see," he added. 

It's understood that Chelsea doesn't want to lose Jorginho, especially with the club unable to sign new players due to a ban by UEFA.

The Europa League champions have already lost Eden Hazard to Real Madrid, and losing Jorginho would be catastrophic for the incoming manager.
