Maurizio Sarri was once the driving force behind the move from Jorginho to Stamford Bridge. Later, the Italian trainer wanted to bring his protégé to Juventus Turin.

“In the past, when Sarri was coach, there was a possibility that Jorginho would join Juventus,” advisor Joao Santos told Radio Bianconera.

Jorginho, like Maurizio Sarri, moved from SSC Napoli to Chelsea in 2018, after a year the coach had to vacate his post in London. A little later, Sarri hired Juventus Turin.

Sarri wanted to bring Jorginho back to Italy, but the deal didn’t go through. A return to Serie A has not been done for the native Brazilian. “He has a contract with Chelsea until 2023. It would of course be a dream for him to return to Italy, hopefully after winning the World Cup,” said Joao Santos.

The midfield director has had an outstanding season. With Chelsea he won the Champions League as one of the top performers and the European Championship with the Squadra Azzurra. Jorginho was individually named UEFA Player of the Year.

Will Jorginho win the Ballon d’Or?

The 29-year-old is one of the favorites in the FIFA World Cup and the Ballon d’Or. Advisor Santos believes in more precious metals for his client.

“Jorginho has a good chance of winning the Ballon d’Or. We usually think of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, but nobody has won as much this year as Jorginho,” said the mediator.
