Jorginho’s future at Stamford Bridge has been uncertain, especially since the restart of the season, as the Italy international had to sit out the first five games for Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard had preferred N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and even Billy Gilmour in the deep lying playmaker role, but Jorginho got back into the team after lots of injuries to many first team members.

Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, has recently spoken about the future of his client and did not deny that a move could be a possibility if Juve can find an agreement with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia.

Santos told Radio Kiss Kiss: “Sarri has never called Jorginho personally to talk about Juventus. I know there’s talk in the papers, but we have never had direct contact with Sarri or even director of sport Fabio Paratici.

“When the directors Paratici and Marina Granovskaia find an agreement, if they find an agreement, then and only then can I talk about the situation.

“Everyone knows there is a very strong rapport between Sarri and Jorginho after five years working together, I’d be a hypocrite to deny that, but I also want to remind you that Jorginho has three years left on his Chelsea contract.”
