Chelsea is a team that is seriously aiming for the stars at the moment. Last season, the Blues were the UEFA Champions League winners and this season, they have already won the UEFA Super Cup. This is the first time in years that the club has looked like genuine title contenders and a lot of top players would love to play for Chelsea. Even though it seems like the Blues are one of the biggest clubs at the moment and all the big names would want to put on that Three-sponsored kit, they might be at the risk of losing one of their best players soon.

Jorginho’s agent hints that the player could leave Chelsea in order to return back to Italy
The regista—alongside N’Golo Kante—created one of the best duos in the PL and what Jorginho lacked in sheer pace and tackling, he more than made up for with his vision and creativity. When the Italian first came in, there was a misconception about him that he would be the next Mesut Ozil or Kevin de Bruyne. Yes, he possesses a lot of vision and can provide some extraordinary passes. However, the reigning UEFA Men’s Player of the Year likes to play a deeper role and control the whole pace of the game according to his will.
29-year-old Jorginho was undoubtedly one the most influential players for Chelsea last season. The former Napoli man was not always the most impactful player at Stamford Bridge and his ability was often questioned by critics and fans alike. However, last season the Italian showed what he is actually made of and why the Blues paid almost £60 million for him. The midfielder seemed much more at home and he has now settled into the Premier League.
This allowed Kante to move forward while Jorginho dictated the play in midfield. He was also Chelsea’s top domestic goalscorer, albeit all of his goals did come from penalties. His role in Italy’s victory in the Euros was instrumental, and he was often called the conductor of the orchestra. His performances for Chelsea and Italy won him the UEFA Player of the Year and he could also go on to win the Ballon d’Or if he has a great season until December.
Although everything is going his way and he is finally settling into the club, it seems like he wants to return to Italy. According to his agent, Joao Santos, the player’s dream is to return to Italy. He still has two years left on his contract with Chelsea though. He also confirmed that when Maurizio Sarri was coaching Juventus, there was a possibility of him joining the Old Lady.
