The whispers about Jorginho leaving Chelsea have come in a steady stream almost every week since he signed for the club.
This summer though they had dried up almost entirely, until we heard them spark up again yesterday through Nick Purewal of the Press Association.
Juventus thought to be ready to step up pursuit of Jorginho from #ChelseaFC if/when Man Utd complete Rabiot signing. Juve will hope they can persuade the #CFC star to move and the club to sell. Jorginho has regularly publicly declared his happiness to stay with Blues long term

That’s just reminded us that we’re in quite a critical situation with Jorginho. His contract runs out next summer, so if we don’t sell him now, it looks likely he leaves for free in a year’s time.
That would be a disaster in normal circumstances, but given we lost Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger a year earlier in the same way, this would be a catastrophe.
To lose 3/11 members of a Champions League winning team, all still in their 20s, will have walked away for a combined fee of… 0.
That’s critical mismanagement of your assets, and you can’t imagine the new ownership will stand for that sort of thing.
