Joao Santos, the agent of Jorginho, has confirmed that talks had previously been held with Milan surrounding his client, as well as other sides throughout Europe.
The midfielder joined Chelsea from Napoli in 2018 and has since blossomed into one of Europe’s most reliable players, having placed third in the 2021 Ballon d’Or.
But talking at a football conference in Palermo (quoted by MilanNews), Santos confirmed contact between Milan and his client: “In the past I spoke with PSG, Barcelona and also with Massara of Milan. I don’t know if they want it [a deal for Jorginho] now.”
He added that he still talks to Ricky Massara, speculating about potential interest in the Italian: “I talk to Massara too. But I don’t know if they are still interested.”
Reaffirming the realities of the current situation at Chelsea, however, Santos confirmed that nothing can be done involving Jorginho, be it renewing his contract, selling him or buying someone else.
Jorginho is contracted to Chelsea until 2023 and cannot move under the current circumstances, but returning to Serie A should he leave the west London side in future feels a realistic prospect.
