Jorginho ‘could go to Milan, Inter, Juve, Napoli or Roma’

by | Mar 23, 2022 13:21

Jorginho’s agent confirms returning to Serie A is ‘a dream’ for the Chelsea midfielder, specifying he could go to ‘Milan, Inter, Juventus, Roma or Napoli,’ while he had previous talks with PSG and Barcelona.

The Brazil-born player moved to Italy to be part of the Hellas Verona youth academy and found fame at Napoli before following coach Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea.

He has won numerous trophies with the Blues, including the Champions League and Club World Cup, but his contract is due to expire in June 2023 and there have been growing reports Juventus will attempt a summer swoop.

“Playing in Serie A is a dream for him and his heart remains here,” agent Joao Santos told Tuttomercatoweb.

“As things stand today, he could play for four or five clubs: Milan, Inter, Juve, Roma or Napoli.”

Notably, the representative did not mention Sarri’s current club, Lazio, so a reunion with his old coach seems improbable.

The latest rumours have all been around Juventus, who are looking to revamp their midfield after a disappointing campaign, with Arthur Melo likely to be replaced.

“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.”

Chelsea assets have been frozen as part of the sanctions imposed on Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich.

    Please don’t come to Juve
    We don’t want another R ( Rabbiot or Ramsey )
    The only R we want is Rovella

    If I’m being honest as a Milan fan I wouldn’t really want him. Of course he’s a fantastic player but we would have to revamp the entire midfield around him and this group of players have proved that these tactics work for us with the resources available. At present I would only want a like-for-like replacement with Kessie and for Bennacer to be at the level he should be at every game.

    LOL so Inter or Juve then.

    it’s bizarre that even after the last few years sports-journalists still try to convince us that Milan will attempt signings like this.

    In case you haven’t been around let’s recap:
    Cala – left on free because milan wouldn’t increase salary
    Kessie – same story
    Romagnoli – Probably same story

    January window – wouldn’t pay for replacement for Kjaer

    last summer signed 35 year old Giroud for 1m (I think?)
    this summer trying to get Origi on a free

    when was the last time Milan found millions in the budget for someone like Jorginho? It was during the wild years when the Chinese took over and the havoc it caused is still being repaired now.

    even in the last year of his contract, jorginho won’t move cheap. Then there’s the agent to pay for and he’s not going to move to Milan for less than what he earns now.

    So please, quit with the silly stories. we’re all over it. It wont happen unless Milan get bought out by a multi-billionaire

    Milan is bought by multi-billionaire. Why must spend a lot if milan could stay competitive with minimum cost.

  6. Fatecisognare

    So he basically could go anywhere. Great story…..

    @Vogel. FFP Settlement Agreement. FFP Settlement Agreement. FFP Settlement Agreement. Like it needs to be repeated over and over because people just willfully ignore it. By the way, we’re technically in breach, meaning we could be punished by UEFA. See the article from Gazzetta dello Sport below. I’m always happy to educate.

    @vero Rossonero we are going there slowly, in the future we might do something crazy like epl, hopefully not stupid like arsenal and mu post sir alex

    I agree guys. This is supposed to be an Italian Football News site but they apparently know nothing. Milan sign young players for next to nothing and develope them now and the older players Giroud, Kjaer were signed for peanuts. Let’s just say for arguments sake Milan have 50 million for the summer Market, that’s going on young players (Botman, Sanches, Scamacca maybe) but there not gonna pay an ageing jourginho a Kings ransom. Plus the minute agents demand ridiculous commissions, Milan wilt. Stop printing this hyperthetical BS and keep it real.

    Weakmental…Milan is not owned by a multi-billionaire. It is owned by a fund manager. Big difference.

  11. Milan Fan

    Milan did pay 30m for Tomori though. They will pay if the player is “right”, and young. There’s no chance of Jorginho though.

    @vogel exactly.
    I think silly season has started early this year here at FI.
