Italy No.8 midfielder will see out Chelsea contract



Jorginho is interested in a return to Italy and is ready to run down his deal at Chelsea and leave for nothing next year.

The 30-year-old player has a year left on his Blues contract and has been strongly linked with a transfer away from the club.

Juventus are keen on getting their hands on the midfielder and conversations have taken place over taking the ex-Napoli man to Turin this summer.

Jorginho wants to return to Serie A but it has been stated that he is not desperate to depart the west London just yet.

According to a recent report from the Italian media outlet Calciomercato, the star is prepared to wait for another term and depart on a free transfer at the end of the next campaign.

The Brazilian-born midfielder has already seen Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger do the same in the summer.


He is prepared to see out his existing contract if a move to the Italian top-flight does not happen in the upcoming transfer market.

It remains to be seen whether the club’s management decide to hand him a new deal over the next few months.
