Agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho continues to hint at Juventus move

The agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has further fuelled speculation of a move to Juventus.

Joao Santos admitted last week that any player would like to play with Juve, when speaking with Radio Kiss Kiss.

Jorginho has been linked with a reunion with Juve boss Maurizio Sarri, who he worked with at Chelsea and Napoli.

Speaking to Tuttosport, Santos said: "I don't know if Juve want Jorginho, who still has a three-year contract at Chelsea. We'll see.

"He's a professional, so if an important team gives him a call, well, why not?"

Santos added that transfer fees reduced by the coronavirus will return back to normal after a year.

"I believe that the sale of the most important players will be considered in the case of a sizeable bid.

"Faced with big offers, it would be appropriate to sell your players.

"It will just last a year. Then slowly the system will recover.

"This crisis is a global one but it will affect countries where there is no great competitiveness anymore. For example, in Portugal, or in Italy's Serie B and Serie C, where they are missing gate receipts and probably also some sponsorship. It will be difficult for them."
