Just In: Jorginho’s agent confirmed midfielder exit at Stamford Bridge this summer

Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos has revealed that Chelsea will sell the 28-year-old midfielder this summer if they receive the right offer.

Jorginho, 28, has three years left on his contract at Stamford Bridge but he has been heavily linked to a reunion with his former boss Maurizio Sari at Juventus.

His agent reinforced the relationship between the pair but claimed two ‘top European clubs’, not based in Italy, have been in contact about a possible move for the 28-year-old.

‘If you ask me if Sarri likes Jorginho, I’d say “yes” due to their history,’ he told Radio Musica Television via Football Italia.

‘I can’t say anything about the transfer market as I’m not in touch with anyone right now.

‘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.

‘In this sense, two top European clubs, not Italian ones, contacted me.’

Joao Santos was also asked why Jorginho did not have any Italian suitors when Chelsea signed him from Napoli two years ago.

‘It was difficult at the time, given it was really complicated for an Italian club to match Chelsea’s offer,’ he said.

‘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.’

The 28-year-old has had a positive season under Frank Lampard with seven goals and two assists in 37 appearances across all competitions.
