Jorginho's agent in Barcelona 'to speak with the club'
The Italian midfielder could be the replacement for Sergio Busquets
Barcelona’s director of football, Mateu Alemany, explained during the assembly that Barça would go for players whose contract is ending, if they think they are good market opportunities. It was already done in the summer with the incorporation of Bellerín, Marcos Alonso, Kessie and Christensen and the formula will be repeated next year. And one of the possible players of interest would be Chelsea midfielder Jorginho. 'Tuttomercato' say his agent, Joao Santos, has been in Barcelona talking about the possibility of moving to the Camp Nou, as the Italian international wants to leave the Premier League.
Jorginho is a big player. He signed for Chelsea in 2018 for 57 million euros from Napoli and has played exceptionally, both in England and in Italy. He is a footballer who was already linked to Barça in the past. The Blaugrana sounded him out in an exchange operation but it was not possible to reach an agreement. His technical characteristics make him a footballer with Barça’s profile and the Blaugrana are looking replacements for Sergio Busquets, likely to leave at the end of the season.
Barça are beginning to contact the agents of players that they like and who are set to be free agents. They are clear that now is the time to tie operations before other clubs get involved. In fact, Barça practically tied up Christensen and Kessié at this time last season.
