Jorginho’s agent said a return to Serie A is not out of the question despite the 27-year-old impressing so far during his second season at Chelsea.
The Italian joined the Blues in 2018 when Maurizio Sarri was in charge.
Jorginho deserves huge credit for sticking up with the club rather than looking for a return to Serie A once Sarri moved on to join Juventus.
However, now his agent said that a return to Serie A is under consideration.
Speaking to Radio Sportiva after Italy’s win, his agent Joao Santos expressed his happiness with his client’s recent form.
“It has certainly been a positive year for Jorginho,” Santos said. “He is doing well for the Nazionale and can take part in the Euros. He always converts his penalties, I am very happy for him, as he is working so hard every day.
“Naturally, it was not positive when Giampiero Ventura was the Italy coach, but he has slowly become first choice in that midfield. It certainly helps that he plays for Chelsea, because it’s a very intense style of football in England and he learned a lot both from Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard.”
