Jorginho and Maurizio Sarri ‘have not spoken in a year’ despite Chelsea midfielder being linked with swap deal that would reunite him with his former boss at Juventus

  • Jorginho has previously played under Maurizio Sarri at Napoli and Chelsea
  • Sarri who is now at Juventus, would reportedly like to bring him to Turin 
  • The Italian midfielder though is reportedly ‘happy with life’ in London 

Jorginho and Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri have reportedly not spoken since the manager left Chelsea, despite rumours that they could reunite in Turin. 

The midfielder played under Sarri at Napoli before they both moved to Chelsea in July 2018.

The 28-year-old has continually been linked with the Serie A leaders following Sarri’s departure from Chelsea last June.

However it has been reported that the pair have not spoken since Sarri left Chelsea last year

However, The Athletic have reported that the two ‘have not communicated’ in the time that has passed since Sarri’s departure.

They add that the Italian international has ‘fallen in love’ with London and is relishing proving fans wrong under new manager Frank Lampard. 

Jorginho often bore the brunt of Chelsea fans’ frustrations with ‘Sarriball’ last season, as the midfielder was integral to Sarri’s tactical system.

However, under the management of Lampard, Jorginho has become a fan-favourite at Stamford Bridge and has been one of the club’s star performers this year as they seek a Champions League spot for next season.

Despite an impressive season, the report goes on to say that Chelsea could still be convinced to sell the Italian midfielder due to other options they already have including N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic.

They are joined by Billy Gilmour who impressively broke into the team before the coronavirus lockdown, and with Ruben Loftus-Cheek set to return from injury.

However, Juventus are not believed to be keen on spending a lot of money due to the financial implications of Covid-19 and might be looking to offer out a swap deal if they were to go for the Italian midfielder.

Douglas Costa, Miralem Pjanic and Federico Bernardeschi and Douglas Costa are all reportedly out of favour in Turin and could be involved in any swap deal.

Frank Lampard has strengthened his side significantly with the signing of Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech, who is expected to be joined shortly by RB Leipzig ace Timo Werner at the club.

The Premier League side are expected to sell several players when the window opens in effort to re-fill their transfer kitty with Bayer Leverkusen’s highly-rated midfielder Kai Havertz also on their radar.
