Chelsea set for another transfer war with Barcelona as La Liga giants eye next free agent | Football | Sport
Jorginho is in the final year of a deal he signed in 2018 when he moved from Napoli in a £57million deal, and his agent has claimed that the “priority” for the 30-year-old is to stay at Chelsea. “He still has a year of contract with the Blues, the renewal is the priority,” Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos told 1 Station Radio in May amid rumours linking his client to Juventus. “At the moment, however, Chelsea cannot operate in the market due to the issues arising from [Roman] Abramovich’s sale, so we will meet again with the club to discuss it.
“Jorginho has spent six or seven years of high-level football. He also plays in the Premier League, which is certainly a more important championship than the Italian one.
“Without forgetting that he is also European champion and the year before he won the Champions League. Obviously a profile like Jorge’s would help many teams, even in Italy. First comes the Chelsea situation, because his priority is the renewal with the Londoners.”
