Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos claims that Chelsea could sell the midfielder ‘if there comes in a big enough offer’ and reveals that ‘two top European clubs’ have contacted him.
“If you ask me if Sarri likes Jorginho, I’d say ‘yes’ due to their history,” Santos told Radio Musica Television. Jorginho still has three years left on his contract with Chelsea, but there continues to be speculation about a meeting with Maurizio Sarri at Juventus. Santos’ comments only add credibility to these rumours.
“Jorginho still has three years left on his contract and is doing well at Chelsea, but if a big enough offer comes in then a deal could go through,” he said. “In this sense, two top European clubs, not Italian ones, contacted me.”
Santos was then asked why two years ago when he was still a Napoli player, no Italian sides rivalled the Blues for his client’s signature:
“It was difficult at the time, given it was really complicated for an Italian club to match Chelsea’s offer.
“He was definitely a loss to the Italian league, but above all its teams must pay attention to young players like Verratti, who went to PSG for only €15m and would’ve been a great deal for them.”
He finally ended by refusing to give any confirmation: “I can’t say anything about the transfer market as I’m not in touch with anyone right now.”
