He confirmed that his client had a special relationship with coach Maurizio Sarri.
“Maurizio Sarri is so appreciative of him as a human being and a footballer, they work very well together. But, that’s all there is for now. The player only focused on Chelsea, he continued training, and prepared to continue the competition, “said Santos.
So, what if Juventus bid in the transfer market next summer?
“If there is anything I can say, anyone who wants Jorginho must talk to Chelsea and Marina. Then they will evaluate what needs to be done, “he explained.
