New Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri, will not pursue a move for Chelsea star Jorginho, even though the player is keen to leave Stamford Bridge and follow his old boss to Turin, the UK Sun reports.
The Italian International spent three years under Sarri at Napoli and was his first signing as Chelsea manager, joining in a £52million deal.
Meanwhile, it has been suggested that Maurizio Sarri wants yet another reunion with Jorginho, but the transfer looks unlikely.
Instead, Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri, believes Miralem Pjanic can comfortably fulfil Jorginho’s role at Juventus, believing he can develop into a key player in his system.
However, not signing Jorginho would also save Juventus from spending £60m and will allow Sarri to reinvest in a more attacking midfielder, with Pogba having been linked with a move to the club.
The Italian decision to cool his interest will be a huge blow to Jorginho, whose agent had intimated he would be willing to listen to any offer from Juve if they made a move.
He has four-years contract with the club.
Right now, the midfielder is happy at Chelsea. His past at Napoli won’t be an issue, because Jorginho is a professional.
Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, told Tuttomercatoweb: We can’t really say that he’d like to go elsewhere and he found a great atmosphere, but anything can happen in the transfer market. We’ll wait and see.
