Chelsea midfielder's agent confirms player wants to renew contract

Jorginho wants to hold talks with Blues director Marina Granovskaia.

The Italian midfielder has attracted interest from other clubs after establishing himself as a key player in Chelsea’s first-team squad.

His current deal at Stamford Bridge expires in 2023 and his agent Joao Santos reveals he is keen to negotiate a new deal with the club.

He has been also a star for the Italians in Euro 2020 playing a pivotal role in their run to the final.

‘Today, Jorginho’s valuation is around €50 million (£42.8m). If a team arrives… obviously he has made it to many finals,’ Santos told Radio Marte.

‘Yes, but our first thought is to speak to Marina Granovskaia about the renewal.

‘This is certainly a very important moment in his career, he has been waiting for it for 20 years.’

Former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri believes Jorginho will be a frontrunner for the Ballon d’Or if Italy manages to win the Euro 2020.

‘He is a refined player, probably not understood by everyone,’ said Sarri.

‘You have to set your eyes on him and only watch him in the game. He is so good and intelligent that he makes everything seem easy, rarely anything spectacular remains in your eyes. This is its greatness.’
