Jorginho has vastly improved his form so far this season but now his agent has come to stoke the fire.
After a fairly average campaign last year during which he was booed by sections of his own support, it’s probably fair to say the Italian had a lot of impressing to do in regards to becoming one of the spearheads of this blues side.
This season, it’s a different story entirely, with the 27-year-old excelling under new Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and showing exactly why they signed him in the first place.
Amassing an impressive 87.5% pass success rate this season, including a goal and an assist, it’s clear to see what he brings to the team – that element of control and ball retention so crucial to the game now.
Keeping that in mind, his agent has now decided to stoke the fires and claim that the former Verona man will one day move back to Italy.
He stated: “Not immediately, but he will return to Italy in the future”, said Joao Santos to Radio Sportiva via the Metro.
“If there was the possibility, he would take it into consideration, but not immediately.”
Understandably, some Chelsea supporters have shown their frustration at the comments:
Yes true, that’s what agents do, keep the Italian media happy when he comes here keep the English media happy.

For me, the agent want a new contract for his client.. Before the end of the season, I bet you will hear contract negotiation.
