Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos admitted the midfielder could have joined Juventus if Maurizio Sarri was still the manager as he opened the door for a future reunion.

The close relationship between Jorginho and Sarri is no secret as the two worked together at Napoli before moving to London in summer 2018.

There were rumours about the pair’s reunion at Juventus in the summer, but the manager’s sacking and the appointment of Andrea Pirlo changed the situation.

The move did not materialise in the end, and Jorginho has featured in all but one Premier League game for the Blues so far.

But while Jorginho is enjoying his life at Chelsea at the moment, he is open to working under Sarri again in the future, according to his agent Santos.

“He’s very happy with Frank Lampard and Chelsea can do even better than last season,” the agent told Calciomercato.it.

“Almost all the Italy players are in Serie A, as it’s an important league, but his journey took him to London.

“If Maurizio Sarri had remained, perhaps he’d have joined Juventus.

“Jorginho has a personal and professional bond with the coach that is very strong.

“We’re waiting to see where Sarri goes, and if it’s a big club in Italy, Jorginho could follow him.”
