Jorginho’s agent says Chelsea midfielder ‘could follow’ Maurizio Sarri to next club as midfielder eyes Italy return
Nov. 18, 2020
Jorginho could leave Chelsea to reunite with former boss Maurizio Sarri at his next club, the player’s agent has revealed.
The 28-year-old spent three years with Sarri at Napoli from 2015-2018 before they both moved to west London.
The Blues beat Manchester City to the £50million signing of Jorginho, but he blew hot and cold with fans in his first campaign as question marks were raised over his suitability to the Premier League.
Nevertheless, the Italy international has become an important part of Frank Lampard’s plans at Stamford Bridge, particularly this season as his new look Chelsea side look to mount a challenge for the title.
However, Jorginho’s future has been thrown into doubt once more following comments from his agent.
Joao Santos, speaking to Italian outlet Calciomercato , has revealed his player may look to depart the west London club soon to reunite with Sarri.
“He’s very happy with Frank Lampard and Chelsea can do even better than last season,” he said.
“Almost all the Italy players are in Serie A, as it’s an important league, but his journey took him to London. If Maurizio Sarri had remained, perhaps he’d have joined Juventus.
“Jorginho has a personal and professional bond with the coach that is very strong. We’re waiting to see where Sarri goes, and if it’s a big club in Italy, Jorginho could follow him.”
