Chelsea star ready to snub move to Italy

Jorginho is ready to turn his back on a potential return to Italy and instead commit his future to Chelsea, according to his agent.

Joao Santos was responding to reports that Jorginho is wanted by Juventus, who have also been linked with Emerson Palmieri.

Italy international Jorginho played under Juve boss Maurizio Sarri at both Chelsea and Napoli and has been repeatedly linked with a move to Turin.

He was seen as Sarri’s flagship signing at Chelsea and there has inevitably been speculation that he could link up with him again, particularly as Chelsea currently have plenty of midfield options.

However, Santos has insisted he has had no contact from Juventus or Sarri and that Jorginho wants to say at Stamford Bridge.

He has three years left on his current Chelsea deal and is seemingly open to signing a contract extension.

“I never had contact with Juventus,” the agent told Calciomercato.

“The lad is very happy in London, where he is proving his worth and still has three years left on his contract

“In fact, in July there’s the possibility we can start talks to add a fourth and extend his contract.

“I don’t know what Juve’s transfer strategy is, but these (staying at Chelsea) are our plans for the future.”
