- Jorginho’s agent revealed his client will ‘stay with Chelsea 100 percent’
- Midfielder transferred from Napoli to Chelsea in 2018 but has been linked with a return
- Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, Jorginho has been key to the German’s plans
- He has two more years left on his contract and it looks like he won’t be going anywhere anytime soon
Jorginho’s agent has confirmed that the midfielder will “ stay 100 percent with Chelsea this summer, ” despite reports linking him with a return to Italy.
The 29-year-old followed Maurizio Sarri from Napoli to West London in 2018 and has become a key player for the Blues since his arrival.
Jorginho impressed new manager Thomas Tuchel and fits perfectly with his possession-based style that the German is still unbeaten after more than two months at Stamford Bridge.

But recent reports claim that Jorginho could be tempted to return to Napoli, especially if former boss Sarri is chosen to replace the downtrodden Gennaro Gattuso.
However, his agent, Joao Santos, quashed those rumors by insisting that his client isn’t going anywhere.
In an interview with Tuttomercato, he said: ‘He has a two-year contract with Chelsea. He is thinking about playing in the European Championship and then the World Cup in Qatar.
“He stays one hundred percent with Chelsea.”
Asked if Jorginho wants to renew his contract at Stamford Bridge, Santos added, “We’ll talk about it in a few months.”

It comes after Santos revealed last month that his client would consider returning to Napoli if a bid came in, but admitted that he is an ‘important’ part of Tuchel’s set-up at Stamford Bridge.
The Italy international – who still has his current deal at Stamford Bridge for over two years – has scored 16 goals for the Premier League side, helping them win the Europa League 2019.
And he certainly seems to enjoy Tuchel’s playing style as opposed to former boss Frank Lampard’s.
“The coach wants us to be in control of the game, play from behind, even when the pressure comes,” he said recently.
“So for me it’s a good way to play football that I like and enjoy, and I think it’s better for my attributes than playing long balls and second balls.”
