Chelsea in talks with midfielder over signing a new contract
Jorginho still has two years left on his current deal, but the Blues would like to retain his services for even longer.
They cannot be blamed for wanting to tie down the Italian following his excursions over the past few months.
He played a key role in Chelsea’s Champions League conquest and proved even more vital during Italy’s run to European Championship success.
The 29-year-old and Emerson Palmieri became the tenth and 11th players to claim double European glory in the same season.
Some people within the industry have even thrust Jorginho’s name forward for a Ballon d’Or nomination.
Maurizio Sarri, Lorenzo Insigne, and most recently, Gianfranco Zola, were strong in their suggestions that the midfielder should win football’s top individual honour.
