Jorginho’s agent denies growing rumours of a move to Juventus in exchange for Federico Bernardeschi. “Anyone who wants him has to talk to Chelsea.”
Multiple Italian sources claim a swap deal is in the offing for two players valued at roughly €40m each.
“I only hear about these rumours from the newspapers, because nobody from Juventus has contacted me,” agent Joao Santos told TuttoJuve.com.
“Maurizio Sarri appreciates him very much as a person and a player, they worked very well together, but that’s all there is to it right now. The player is focused only on Chelsea, he’s resumed training and is preparing for the Premier League restart.
“In my view, it would be difficult for the Bianconeri to buy him today, because the transfer market has changed with the pandemic and Jorginho has a contract with Chelsea until 2023. He is the vice-captain and considered an important player for the squad.
“I don’t just mean Juventus, but all the biggest European clubs would struggle to pay that much for one player right now.”
Jorginho’s agent was asked what would happen if the proposal from Juventus really did come in?
“If it should happen, I say that anyone who wants Jorginho has to talk to Chelsea and Marina (Granovskaia). Then we will evaluate together what to do. That would not be a problem.”
