Jorginho Rejects New Chelsea Contract

Jorginho Rejects New Chelsea Contract

Jorginho has rejected a new contract with Chelsea and is demanding a 25 per cent pay increase.

Jorginho’s deal at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old midfielder is said to want to stay with Chelsea after his agent claimed he is “prioritising” the club.

According to The Evening Standard the Italian has turned down their latest proposal in order to seek an increase in wage.

The West London club has only offered Jorginho an extension on his current terms of £120k-a-week.

However, he allegedly wants to match his wage with Cesar Azpilicueta – who is on £150k-a-week.

Despite agent Joao Santos hinting that a renewal could already be underway, other clubs are interested.

The vice captain’s representative revealed he has held discussions about his client with four European clubs.

Santos was spotted in Barcelona and there may be contact with the Catalan giants.

LaLiga rivals Real Madrid are also keen, along with Valencia and Lyon.

The Euro 2020-winner will be free to negotiate a pre-contract with foreign clubs from January.

Jorginho first joined Chelsea in 2014, following ex-boss Maurizio Sarri from Napoli.

After Sarri’s departure, Jorginho remained and has ended up becoming a fan favourite.

He has gone on to make 201 appearances for the club and scored 28 goals.

He was instrumental in helping Chelsea to win the Champions League, Europa League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
