The agent of Jorginho says his client is already thinking about life after Chelsea.
Jorginho, 30, joined the Blues in 2018 from Napoli — after being heavily associated with a move to Manchester City — and subsequently linked up with former boss Maurizio Sarri in England’s capital.
An exceptional deep-lying midfielder, the Brazilian-born Italian international would endure a difficult start; although he was praised for his metronomic capabilities on the ball, he was oft-criticised for not being decisive in the final third.

A consistent run of playing time under Frank Lampard and current incumbent head coach Thomas Tuchel has seen Jorgingo turn his fortunes and in the process win supporters over. To date he’s made no fewer than 179 appearances in all competitions netting 26 goals while creating a further seven.
His trophy cabinet has grown over the last few years; while representing the Londoners he’s lifted the Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup titles. After helping Italy being crowned European champions in 2021 he was named UEFA Men’s Player of the Year.
So far this season he’s played 24 times in the Premier League, starting on 21 of those occasions, and has contributed with six goals and though Jorginho’s present deal at Stamford Bridge expires in June 2023 his representative Joao Santos is hinting of a return to Serie A.

“Playing in Serie A is a dream for him and his heart remains here,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.
“As things stand today, he could play for four or five clubs: Milan, Inter, Juve, Roma or Napoli.
“There are many clubs interested in him. In the past I spoke to PSG, Barcelona and also Milan’s Ricky Massara. I don’t know if the Rossoneri are still interested, though.
“The fact remains, we can’t do anything now because Chelsea are not allowed to sell, buy or renew contracts. Jorginho has a contract until June 2023, after the World Cup we’ll see about working on a renewal.”
