Top Chelsea star Jorginho could leave Stamford Bridge end of the season if the club would be prepared to sell, says Jorginho’s agent.
The 28-year-old Italy international has been a regular face for Frank Lampard’s side this season after making 32 appearances in all competitions for the Blues.Jorginho has been heavily linked with a return to Serie A to reunite with former manager Maurizio Sarri for the third time in his career after working with Italian gaffer at Napoli and Chelsea respectively.
However, the midfielder representative admits that the Brazilain descent could like the idea of quitting the west London outfit for league leaders Juventus in the summer if the Blues are desire to partway with the former Napoli star end of this current campaign.
“Anything can happen in the transfer market. I said ‘why not?’ to Juventus because Jorginho has a three-year contract with Chelsea, so the priority is clearly to remain there, but we could also evaluate leaving the club in July,’ Joao Santos told TuttoJuve.
“In that case, if this were to happen, we’d be ready to consider the various proposals that will arrive from Italy, France and England.
“Why shouldn’t it be possible to join Juventus? They are the most important club in Italy, the one that has won the most in recent years. We wouldn’t say no to the Bianconeri.”It’s natural because Sarri was Jorginho’s coach at both Napoli and Chelsea.
“The player was fundamental in his tactics over the last four years, knows the system inside out and that is why there are these rumours.
“If Juventus, who already have a very strong squad, were to need him and Chelsea were ready to sell, we would certainly evaluate their proposal.
“It’d then be up to the clubs to reach an agreement. ‘Nobody from Juve, not now or in the past, have contacted me to talk about Jorginho. The club would need to speak to Chelsea first, as talking to me won’t change the situation very much.’
Jorginho and Chelsea will welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League encounter after the winter break.
