“He has a two-year contract,” Joao Santos told Calciomercato.it. “And it’s all in the hands of the club.

“There is the Club World Cup, there’s the European Super Cup. For a footballer, these are important targets.

“But the transfer market is always the transfer market and if a major club comes forward with a serious offer to Chelsea, then we will evaluate.

“At the moment, Jorginho will play at Chelsea next season.”
