CHELSEA ace Jorginho could follow old boss Maurizio Sarri to his next club, according to the midfielder’s agent.
The 28-year-old was a favourite of Sarri’s during the 61-year-old’s Stamford Bridge reign and Joao Santos says the pair could soon link up again.Jorginho could follow Maurizio Sarri to his next club[/caption]
Sarri only spent a year in West London – managing the Blues for the 2018-19 season.
And Italian international Jorginho was the first name on the team sheet after Sarri signed him from Napoli – where he also managed him.
Sarri left the Blues for Juventus in the summer of 2019 where he also only lasted a year despite winning Serie A.

The maverick boss is now without a club but Santos says his client is keeping tabs on Sarri’s next move.
He told Italian outlet Calciomercato: “Jorginho has a personal and professional bond with the coach that is very strong.
“We’re waiting to see where Sarri goes, and if it’s a big club in Italy, Jorginho could follow him.
“Almost all the Italy players are in Serie A, as it’s an important league, but his journey took him to London.
“If Sarri had remained, perhaps he’d have joined Juventus.”

Despite the transfer bombshell, Santos also admitted Jorginho – who played under Sarri at Napoli before they were both employed by Chelsea – is enjoying life under Frank Lampard.
He added: “He’s very happy with Lampard and Chelsea can do even better than last season.”
Lampard recently axed Jorginho as the club’s penalty taker – replacing him with Timo Werner.
