Agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho denies talks with Juventus boss Sarri

Jorginho's agent has denied the Chelsea midfielder has exchanged words with Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri.

The Italy international was a peripheral figure after the restart and reports have linked him with a move to Turin.

Despite there being no correspondence between Jorginho and Sarri, the midfielder's agent has opened the door for a switch to Serie A.

"Sarri has never called Jorginho personally to talk about Juventus," agent Joao Santos told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"I know there's talk in the papers, but we have never had direct contact with Sarri or even director of sport Fabio Paratici.

"When the directors Paratici and Marina Granovskaia find an agreement, if they find an agreement, then and only then can I talk about the situation.

"Everyone knows there is a very strong rapport between Sarri and Jorginho after five years working together, I'd be a hypocrite to deny that, but I also want to remind you that Jorginho has three years left on his Chelsea contract."
