Announced on the departure this summer, the Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is cited in the plans of PSG. His agent came out of silence on his situation.
Jorginho still in the sights of PSG
Jorginho, who arrived in July 2018 from Napoli for a check of €57 million, is one of the players who could leave Chelsea’s ranks in the upcoming summer mercato. With a year left on his contract with the London club, which is up for sale, the Italian midfielder has reportedly alerted Paris Saint-Germain, who want to rebuild their media sector for next season.
According to the Italian press, Leonardo, the sporting director of the capital club, is in contact with the representatives of Marco Verratti‘s compatriot. Moreover, Joao Santos, the agent of the 30-year-old Italian international has confirmed that he has been in contact with the leader of the French championship in the past. However, he said that his client would have a preference for the continuation of his career if he leaves Chelsea.
PSG Mercato : Jorginho has chosen his future destination
Under contract until June 30, 2023, Jorginho is not against a departure from Chelsea during the next summer transfer market. In comments relayed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Joao Santos confirmed the desires of his protected elsewhere. But if Paris Saint-Germain hopes to convince Gianluigi Donnarumma‘s teammate at the Azzurri, his agent assures that he would like to return to his country if he leaves the Premier League.
“For him to return to Serie A is a dream. His heart is here. There are four or five possible teams: AC Milan, Inter, Juve, Rome or Napoli,” said the representative of the Blues’ creative midfielder before admitting the interest of other clubs. “I know Cherubini (Juventus sporting director, editor’s note) from his experience at Foligno, but many clubs are interested in him. In the past, I have spoken with PSG and Barcelona. I do not know if they still want him today. I also spoke with Massara of AC Milan. But I do not know if they are still interested,” he said.
But with the current situation of the London club, Joao Santos already announces that a transfer is impossible for his colt, which is why he plans to work on his extension after the 2022 World Cup. “The reality is that nothing can be done at the moment. Chelsea can not sell, buy or renew contracts. Jorginho still has a contract until June 2023: after the World Cup, we will try to work on his extension,” Santos added to TMW.
The PSG is thus fixed!
