Chelsea fans delighted as their £50m star is linked with new contract

Chelsea’s Jorginho is being linked with a new contract at Stamford Bridge – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter are excited by the speculation.

Well-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano has reported on Twitter that the Blues will “soon open talks” with their midfielder about a fresh deal.

It is understood that the 29-year-old’s preference is to agree a contract extension with Chelsea. 

Jorginho, who joined the Blues for £50million (BBC) back in 2018 from Napoli, is someone that has always divided the fanbase in west London.

He’s a defensive midfielder that must be one of the most comfortable in possession across the entire Premier League, but question marks are sometimes thrown at him over his physicality and pace. 

The Italy international was a major favourite under ex-boss Maurizio Sarri, and has once again been back to his sharpest under Thomas Tuchel.


The current Chelsea boss has managed to rotate well while keeping Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante all happy.

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media are thrilled with the contract speculation, with some pointing out he deserves immense credit for the way he’s bounced back from some difficult times at the club.

Here are some Blues fans discussing Jorginho’s reportedly imminent deal:
