‘Priorities’: Romano says Chelsea are now in talks with midfielder over signing a new contract

Published

on

Fabrizio Romano stated on his Here We Go podcast that Chelsea had entered into discussions with Jorginho about extending his contract.

Jorginho still has two years left on his current deal, but the Blues would like to retain his services for even longer.

They cannot be blamed for wanting to tie down the Italian following his excursions over the past few months.

He played a key role in Chelsea’s Champions League conquest and proved even more vital during Italy’s run to European Championship success.

The 29-year-old and Emerson Palmieri became the tenth and 11th players to claim double European glory in the same season.

Some people within the industry have even thrust Jorginho’s name forward for a Ballon d’Or nomination.

Maurizio Sarri, Lorenzo Insigne, and most recently, Gianfranco Zola, were strong in their suggestions that the midfielder should win football’s top individual honour.  

It seems only logical that Chelsea wants to prolong his stint, which Romano claimed is the club’s current ambitions.  

“Chelsea are working on Jorginho’s contract as one of the priorities this summer and the coming months,” said the transfer guru.  

“They want to Jorginho to stay. He has a contract until 2023 but they are already talking with him over a potential extension.

“It will take some time because Chelsea usually works with calm in these situations.”

Although penning Jorginho in for a fresh agreement is important, there are other players who need attending to first.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, and Antonio Rudiger all run out of contract next summer.

They each played a massive part towards Thomas Tuchel’s defensive overhaul.

Armando Broja did recently commit his allegiances to Chelsea until 2026.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
