Jorginho is an important player for Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri and was a huge part of Chelsea’s success last season, as he made 54 appearances and scored two goals across all competitions.

The Italian has a good relationship with Sarri who brought him from Napoli to join Chelsea last summer, but it seems the pair who have worked together for the past four years might be separated for the first time.

According to reports, Sarri is set to sign a three-year deal to replace Massimiliano Allegri as Juventus boss after just one season in charge of Chelsea.

It was a fairly successful first season for Sarri in his first year in England as he led the Blues to third place in the Premier League, and also the League Cup final, as well as the Europa League triumph.

Despite his close relationship with Sarri, Jorginho has now revealed that he has no idea of what Sarri wants to do.

“I don’t know, we’ll see what he chooses,” Jorginho told Rai Sport following Italy’s 3-0 win over Greece in Euro 2020 qualifying on Saturday.

“I have no idea what he’ll do, to be honest, as I am focused on Italy right now.”

Jorginho had revealed earlier this month that he wants Sarri to remain at the club after a successful first season, and that it will be betrayal if he decides to join Juventus, a rival club to Napoli.

“It would be sad because I think [Sarri] did a good job,” Jorginho said earlier this month. 

“We finished third in the Premier League, we won the Europa League and we reached the EFL Cup final despite all the critics.

“It was a good first season in Chelsea. It would be sad for everyone.

“The Napoli fans still have him in their hearts; it’s normal that they could get angry. They could treat it as a betrayal; they’re like that. We’ll see what happens.”
