Chelsea star agent confirms ‘many are interested’ as door opens to Stamford Bridge transfer exit

Chelsea star Jorginho’s agent has confirmed the Italian has attracted interest from a number of clubs after winning Euro 2020 on Sunday.

Jorginho was one of the best players at the tournament, and has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in the past.

Jorginho continues to be linked with a move away from Chelsea.

The Italian midfielder, 29, is under contract until 2023, and has been a key figure under Thomas Tuchel.

He formed a strong partnership with N’Golo Kante in the middle of the park, and it seems unlikely he’ll be on the move.

But that hasn’t stopped rival teams from registering an interest, according to his agent.

Juventus, who are going through a squad rebuild this summer, are said to have now declared an interest.

Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, was recently asked about the possibility of any teams moving for the midfielder after the Euro 2020 final.

His response didn’t leave much to the imagination, as he confirmed: “I confirm it, these interests have arrived.

“Of course, at 29 he can do very well in all the top European clubs and many are interested in him.”

However, Santos seemed to dismiss the idea of Jorginho leaving.

Instead, he declared the player wants to stay at Stamford Bridge and build on the success of last season.

Santos added: “He has a two-year contract, and it’s all in the hands of the club.

“There is the World Club Championship, there is the European Super Cup. For a footballer these are important goals.

“But, the transfer market is always the transfer market and if a major club comes forward seriously with Chelsea then we will evaluate.

“At the moment, Jorginho will play it at Chelsea next season.”

Jorginho still has another two years to run on his current deal, but a move for Declan Rice could see players depart.

The West Ham star remains one of the Blues’ top targets, but will likely cost upwards of £80million, meaning Chelsea could be forced to offload players to balance the books.
