Two years after his arrival from Napoli, Jorginho could heading out of Chelsea and his old mentor wants him back in Italy with The Old Lady.
Since Sarri’s appointment as Juventus’s new head coach last summer, Jorginho has been linked to Turin club and Fabio Paratici considers him to be the perfect replacement for outgoing Miralem Pjanić.
Sarri brought Jorginho to Chelsea in 2018 before he returned to Italy in the following year.
But the Italian midfielder received ample of criticism from the press during his first year in England due to his failure to donn the pivot role he played for Chelsea in the midfield. Jorginho admitted that he considered leaving the London side for the same.
And bringing on the latest updated on Sarri’s reunion with his prodigal son…
Italian news outlet Tutto Mercato Web claims that Juventus’ board would like to please Maurizio Sarri and are strongly following the Italian international.
Regardless of inconsistent negotiations between Chelsea and Juventus, they are still on as the Blues would like to sell him and help Kai Havertz’ imminent pursuit a financial boost.
It’s claimed that i bianconeri’s tried to include Aaron Ramsey in a potential deal for Jorginho, although any such possibilities were swiftly rejected by Chelsea, as the club want only money deal for the Italian midfielder.
Considering the good relationship between the clubs, the Italian champions could try getting him on a multi-year loan with an obligatory clause to buy just like they did to bring in Juan Cuadrado.
Jorginho speaking with FourFourTwo back in May was pretty open to a potential Juventus move.
“Last year, fans were picking on me a lot because I’d arrived with another manager and, in my opinion, I ended up hearing some things that were honestly unfair,” Jorginho speaking with FourFourTwo. “But I’ve never challenged the views of the fans and other people who criticised me. Quite the opposite, actually – it gave me strength because inside I knew they were wrong.
“Deep in my mind, it was like this: ‘I’m going to prove they’re wrong and work quietly like I’ve always done, because it’s never been easy for me’.
“I’ve gone through moments like this at every club I’ve played for – this low moment when doubt can come and make you wonder, ‘Should I just leave this place? Maybe there isn’t room for me here.’
“But I embrace this kind of challenge and I’ve never backed down. It gives me more strength to work even harder, to prove to everyone that I can make it.”
