Jorginho will stay at Stamford till the end of his contract, with 2 years remaining after which he would eventually extend his contract with the blues, his agent Claims.
Jorginho’s contract will be due at Chelsea by 2023 and he is an important member of Tuchel’s first team squad since his arrival in January.
The Italian international has made 20 Premier League appearances and have started all of the seven Champions League matches for his club.
However, there has been talk of a summer return to his former club Napoli, intensified by both the player and his agent in recent weeks.
Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos earlier this month told Radio Marte: “If Napoli will make an offer, we’ll evaluate it.”
“He had a great time in Naples and he has many friends over there.”
Santos however has said quite the opposite saying no chance the midfielder will change clubs before 2023 as he focuses on representing Italy in the forthcoming European Championship and World Cup.
“He has a two-year contract with Chelsea,” the agent told Tuttomercato. “He is thinking about playing in the European Championships and then the World Cup in Qatar.”
“He will remain at Chelsea, one hundred per cent”
When asked about potentially extending his contract at Stamford Bridge, Santos said; “We will talk about it in a few months.”
Jorginho has made 126 appearances for Chelsea in under three seasons at the club and has been a big part of the team under Maurizio Sarri, Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel.
Despite this he has been regularly linked with a move away throughout his Blues career, although he is partly to blame, with the Brazilian-born star telling Canale 21 earlier this month that he deeply misses his former home in Italy.
“There are no words to describe how much I miss Naples,” Jorginho said.
“Who wouldn’t miss Naples? It’s so cold in London, they don’t even know what the sun is.”
