Rumors of the move of Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, to the Italian giants, AC Milan, apparently not a figment, because the club has started to give ultimatums.
The English giant, Chelsea, has reportedly begun to warn the mainstay of the Italian midfielder, Jorginho, about wanting to return to play in the Italian League.
Indeed, Jorginho’s contract failed to be extended, after talks that did not reach an agreement. Because of that, Jorginho reportedly only has 12 months of contract at Chelsea.
The 30-year-old player was a key factor in Chelsea winning the Champions League trophy some time ago, as well as playing an important role in the success of the Italian national team in winning the 2020 European Cup.
Because his contract is getting closer to the end, Jorginho‘s future is now starting to be discussed.
Recently, as reported by Football London, Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos seems to be actively peddling his client to return to the Italian League.
The Pizza country competition is where Jorginho grew before he finally flashed with Napoli and moved to Chelsea.
“For Jorginho, playing in the Italian league is a dream, because his heart is there. Today he can play in four or five teams, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, AS Roma or Napoli,” said Santos.
Seeing this, it seems that Jorginho could leave the club to try new challenges with other clubs and leave the philosophy built at Chelsea.

As is known, Jorginho’s contract may not be extended because Chelsea often throws the 30-year-old player away.
“Chelsea’s philosophy is to renew the contract at the end of the season, the priority is Chelsea, on the other hand Jorginho can return to the Italian League, a place he has longed for,” said Santos.
One of the rumors that emerged recently was AC Milan’s interest in signing Jorginho
Reporting from SempreMilan, AC Milan is reportedly starting to get serious about pursuing Jorginho, to add strength to the midfield in the 2022/2023 season.
As is known, Milan will be left by Franck Kessie, who officially defends Barcelona. Meanwhile, the fate of ex-Chelsea Tiemoue Bakayoko is also unclear following his poor performance with Milan
Kessie has become one of the central players in Milan’s game and needs to be replaced immediately. Apart from Jorginho, another player on the shopping list is Portugal midfielder, Renato Sanches.
Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, mentioned his meeting with AC Milan director Ricky Massara at a football conference in Palermo, Italy.
“Some time ago I spoke with Paris Saint-Germain about Jorginho, then with Barcelona, and now with Ricky Massara and AC Milan,” Santos said.
Talked with AC Milan’s officials
Seeing this, it seems that Jorginho could leave the club to try a new challenge with AC Milan and leave the philosophy built at Chelsea.
“I don’t know if they want Jorginho now.”
“Even when I spoke with Ricky Massara, I didn’t know if AC Milan were interested in signing Jorginho,” added Santos.
Since coming to Stamford Bridge, Jorginho has made 179 appearances with 38 of them coming in the 2021/2022 season.
