Agent opens up and confirms midfielder could leave Chelsea in summer
Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos has admitted the current chaos at Chelsea could see the midfielder jump ship, with a number of top clubs reportedly lining up a transfer move for the player
Jorginho has enjoyed a superb couple of years for club and country, and is easily one of the players that Thomas Tuchel likes to put first on the team-sheet, but that has not stopped speculation about his future
Sanctions slapped on the club mean the club are not able to sign any new players or extend the deals of any of their current crop. Jorginho, 30, is out of contract in the summer of 2023.
And while his agent Santos has claimed the ‘priority’ is to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge, something that the midfielder would like to happen, the uncertainty plaguing the club may result in Jorginho looking elsewhere.
Santos confirmed a number of parties are interested in the Italian midfielder, including Serie A giants Juventus, He told Calciomercato: “I haven’t talked to Juve, but I know of their interest in Jorginho.
“We have a contract with Chelsea until 2023 and it is a particular moment for the club, where there are no negotiations, also because the market is blocked both in entry and in exit.
“If the situation unfolds, the priority will be to deal with the renewal.”
But if the club aren’t able to offer Jorginho an extension, he is open to moving elsewhere. Santos added: “Should Chelsea fail to renew their contract, then we will listen to all the teams involved. ”
Look, there will be a number of players that will be considering leaving the club at the end of the season, and it could really be an end of an era at Stamford Bridge. But hopefully he stays at the club because the Premier League enjoys watching him play.
But if he does depart the club, then the new Chelsea owners will line-up a fresher, hungrier and more exciting midfielder to replace him
