Jorginho makes Juventus contract demand

Federico Chiesa Jorginho

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea and Italy star Jorginho is one of Juventus‘ primary targets for the summer, but the ex-Napoli star wants €7m per season.

Jorginho sees his Chelsea contract expire in June 2023 and the Blues can’t negotiate a new deal at the moment due to sanctions imposed by the British Government on Roman Abramovich. Things will change with a new ownership soon, allowing Juventus to sit down with the Premier League giants to discuss the future of the 30-year-old.

His agent has recently opened up about the possibility of returning to Italy if Jorginho fails to agree to a new deal with Chelsea.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, talks between the player’s representative and Juventus have already begun, but Jorginho has requested a €7m-a-year salary in Turin, as much as Dusan Vlahovic earns. Matthijs de Ligt is the highest earner at the Allianz Stadium with an €8m-a-year salary, plus €4m add-ons.

Paulo Dybala, Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot also get €7m per season but the Argentinean striker will leave at the end of his contract in June, while Juventus will listen to offers for the two midfielders. Ramsey is currently out on loan at Rangers but is expected to return to Turin at the end of the season.

Massimiliano Allegri has requested a deep-lying playmaker to add quality to the midfield and if Juve fail in their attempt to get Jorginho, they’d focus on a physical centre midfielder, with Manuel Locatelli deployed as a Regista in 2022-23. Paul Pogba and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are also on Juventus’ radars.

  1. I think that would be a great deal. Modric most likely will want a figure close to 7M as well, so I’d rather go with Jorginho. Furthermore, he’d bring creativity for a few years, unlike Luca. I think they’ll agree on a deal at 6M. Most importantly, get rid of Rabiot and Ramsey. These two are a disaster. Both are completely inconsistent and not Juve level

  2. @Frankie but that is what PhD Max likes, players with that sort of characteristics and don’t even bother with that fake news Modric story. No way will he ruin his career, he either stays put another year or goes back to Croatia.

  3. Juve don’t need Jorginho while they have Locatelli, Arthur. The midfield will stay slow
    They should go for Fratessi instead.
    Signing jorginho would be like bringing back Bentancur. Juve should change management and coach completely

  4. If Juventus stay 4th place in the leaque its a failure becausevis what a rooki has done in the form of Pirlo last year with no coaching expierence.
