Jorginho expects Chelsea to offer contract extension past 2023
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is expecting club owner Roman Abramovich to offer him a new contract before the summer transfer window.
Despite being key to Thomas Tuchel’s revolution at Stamford Bridge so far, the 29-year-old is being heavily linked with a move back to the Serie A, with Napoli, Inter, Juventus and AC Milan all interested in the Italian’s signature.
“He [Jorginho] wants to return to Italy. If Napoli will have the will to bring him back to the squad, we will be well disposed,” said his agent João Santos, speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss, as quoted by Calcio Mercato and relayed by Sempre Milan.
Jorginho has ruled out leaving Chelsea this summer amid talk of him possibly returning to Italy.
“He has a two-year contract with Chelsea. He thinks about playing the European Championship. And then the World Cup in Qatar. He will remain at Chelsea, one hundred percent.”
Chelsea ‘on the lookout’ for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembélé
Chelsea are keeping tabs on Ousmane Dembélé’s contract situation with there being uncertainty around the Barcelona star’s future at the club.
The 23-year-old’s form this season has persuaded the club to offer him a three-year contract extension past 2022, with the winger having backed 10 goals and four assists in 36 appearances across all competitions so far this campaign.
According to Spanish outlet Sport via Sport Witness, Chelsea and Juventus are closely monitoring the Frenchman’s situation at the Camp Nou, with the club prepared to offload the former Dortmund man in the summer should he refuse to extend his stay at the club in the near future.
