Agent insists Chelsea talks remain Jorginho priority: Napoli return?

The agent of Jorginho says his priority is to stay with Chelsea.

The Italy midfielder is being linked with Juventus.

But Joao Santos told 1 Station Radio: "He still has a year of contract with the Blues, the priority is renewal. At the moment, however, Chelsea cannot operate on the market due to the issues arising from the sale of (Roman) Abramovich, so we will meet with the club to discuss it.

"Jorginho has spent six or seven years of high-level football, he also plays in the Premier League, which is certainly a more important championship than the Italian one. Without forgetting that he is also European champion and the year before he won the Champions League.

"Juventus? The Juventus managers didn't call me, certainly because they know that at Chelsea at the moment nothing can be done without a license for the transfer market. Obviously a profile like Jorge's would serve many teams, even in Italy. First the Chelsea situation, because his priority is the renewal with the Londoners. In any case, I repeat, to date no one has come from Italy to ask me."

Asked about a future Napoli return, Santos added: "In football never say never, but I think that today, due to Jorginho's engagement parameters, it is very very difficult to return to Naples."
