JUVENTUS have made no contact with Jorginho’s agent over a move from Chelsea with the midfielder set to open talks over a new deal at Stamford Bridge.
That is according to Joao Santos, who insists his client is very happy in West London under coach Frank Lampard.
Speculation has been rife that Maurizio Sarri, the man who brought Jorginho to Chelsea and is now Juve boss, would attempt to forge a reunion at the end of the season.
But Santos believes it is more likely that the player extends his stay in the Premier League – his current contract running to 2023.
The agent told CalcioMercato: “I have read about [the rumours], but have never had contact with them.
“Neither Sarri nor the directors have ever asked me for information on Jorginho. Right now, I know absolutely nothing about this situation.
“The player is very happy in London, where he is proving his worth and where he still has three more years on his contract.
“And in July, there is the possibility of adding a fourth and opening negotiations for a contract renewal with Chelsea.”
Juventus have been touted to move for Jorginho by offering a player-plus-cash deal, potentially including Miralem Pjanic or Federico Bernardeschi, given their cash reserves are at risk during the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier in the year, Santos asserted that it was possible the 28-year-old could soon return to Italy, where he moved as a teenager from his birthplace in Brazil.
But the Bianconeri and CEO Fabio Paratici, also rumoured to be keen on central midfielders Paul Pogba and Rolando Mandragora, have not yet made their move.
He added: “I don’t know what Juventus’ market strategies may be, but these are the plans for our future.
“And I repeat, to date, neither the Bianconeri, nor any other team has come forward for Jorginho.
“Paratici has known me very well for years, but he has never called me to get information on Jorginho.”
