Chelsea star's agent refuses to rule exit

Transfer: Chelsea star's agent refuses to rule departure from Stamford Bridge

The midfielder could still seal a move away in the coming years.

The agent of Chelsea's Jorginho, Joao Santos, has refused to rule out the possibility of the player departing from Stamford Bridge. The Italian claims that a return to the Serie A still remains on the card for the former Napoli midfielder who only joined the Blues a year ago.

Jorginho's arrival in the English Premier League is one that drew a lot of backlash considering the midfielder's struggles in his first season. Having secured a £57 million transfer in a five-year deal from the Partenopei, the midfielder managed just two goals in 54 appearances.

Nevertheless, the rejuvenation witnessed on Jorginho's part at the latter end of last season has experienced a continuity under new manager Frank Lampard. Earlier this summer, claims emerged that the Italian international might follow his former manager Maurizio Sarri to Juventus having been brought to Chelsea by his former Napoli boss.

Having hit a purple patch under Lampard, the indications of an imminent exit now seem nonexistent but his agent claims they cannot be overruled outrightly. Speaking to Radio Sportiva after Italy's 2-0 win over Greece on Saturday, Joao Santos declared: "It has certainly been a positive year for Jorginho.

"He is doing well for the Nazionale and can take part in the Euros. He always converts his penalties, I am very happy for him, as he is working so hard every day.

"Naturally, it was not positive when Giampiero Ventura was the Italy coach, but he has slowly become first choice in that midfield.

"It certainly helps that he plays for Chelsea, because it's a very intense style of football in England and he learned a lot both from Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard.

"I think Jorginho can do very well at the Euros and, why not, also at the next World Cup," he added.

"As for a return to Serie A, anything is possible, and he will always feel the desire to come back home."
