The agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has admitted that the Italy international could push for an exit from Stamford Bridge depending on Maurizio Sarri’s next career move.
Sarri and Jorginho worked together at Napoli before the duo made the switch to the English capital, although Sarri soon changed allegiances to Juventus in 2019 before being sacked earlier this year.
The ex-Chelsea boss is yet to take on his next managerial role, but Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos has confirmed that his client would be open to a return to Italy if Sarri finds another job in the dugout there.
Speaking to Calciomercato, Santos said: “He’s very happy with Frank Lampard and Chelsea can do even better than last season.
“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.”
Jorginho already has 11 appearances to his name in a Chelsea shirt this season, but the 28-year-old was named on the bench for the Blues’ Premier League wins over Burnley and Sheffield United before the international break.
