Agent: 'Jorginho's price-tag increased'

Jorginho’s agent insists his ‘price-tag has gone up’ since he joined Chelsea and ‘nobody can afford’ to purchase the Italy midfielder at the moment.

He made the move from Napoli in the summer of 2018 for circa €57m plus performance-related bonuses and is under contract until June 2023.

The Brazil-born Italy international has been linked with a return to Serie A for Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus.

“His price-tag has certainly gone up over the last two years, as he has done well in London and become a regular for Italy,” agent Joao Santos told Calciomercato24.com.

“He is now the vice-captain at Chelsea and has amassed a great deal of experience playing in the Champions League and Europa League. I think it’s very unlikely an offer will come in for Jorginho, because nobody can afford to make that kind of investment on the market right now.

“Because of the pandemic, nobody knows when we can return to normal or even play with fans in the stadium, so that’s a big problem for the transfer market.”
