Juventus need to contact Chelsea if they want Jorginho

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard would like Alex Sandro in exchange for Emerson Palmieri and it now remains to be seen whether Juventus will give up the former Real Madrid player, who Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri rates highly.

Sarri started coaching Jorginho at Napoli in 2015 before the pair both ended up at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2018.

"Sarri appreciates him very much as a person and as a player, they worked very well together but there's nothing else".

Pedro has won the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Europa League with Chelsea, scoring 43 times in 201 appearances for the Blues.

And he added: "It would be very hard for Juventus to sign Jorginho today because the market has changed with the pandemic and he has a contract until 2023".

And La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Sarri's lack of faith has led to Bernardeschi targeting a move away from Turin, more specifically to the Premier League.

When asked why Juventus will struggle to get their man, Santos said: "Because what we'll experience will not be a normal market, it will be economically affected by the pandemic. And then Jorginho has a contract with Chelsea until 2023, he's the vice-captain and is considered a very important player for the team".

"If it should happen, I say that anyone who wants Jorginho has to talk to Chelsea and Marina (Granovskaia)".

"I'm not referring only to Juventus, but to all the biggest clubs in Europe". Then we'll consider together what to do.

The Serie A leaders also have a track record of signing players on free transfers, having brought in stars such as Aaron Ramsey, Adrian Rabiot, Emre Can, Sami Khedira and Dani Alves for no fees in past years.
