Barcelona keen on signing £110,000-a-week Chelsea midfielder


Jorginho is the subject of interest from Barcelona over a potential Bosman move in the 2023 summer transfer window. The 30-year-old midfielder is in the final year of his deal with Chelsea but wants to commit his future to the west London club.

Jorginho joined the Blues from Napoli in July 2018 and has since become a key figure for Chelsea. The Italian’s first campaign at Chelsea was forgettable as he struggled to find a stable footing. But the Italian midfielder has come leaps and bounds since the debut season, establishing himself as one of the best midfielders in the PL.

Jorginho, who became the Chelsea vice-captain in his second campaign with the Blues, has turned out nearly 200 times for Chelsea. But Jorginho faces an uncertain future at Chelsea as he has entered the final year of his deal, with talks over a new deal being slow.

Such a situation has captured the attention of the Catalan giants. The interest from the Blaugrana stems from the advancing years of Sergio Busquets. The veteran Spanish midfielder is in the final year of his deal, prompting the Catalan giants to lay down a succession plan for him.

Several midfielders, including Ruben Neves and Martin Zubimendi, have thus popped up on the Blaugrana’s radar. The 30-year-old midfielder has now emerged as the latest candidate on Barcelona’s radar, with the Chelsea captain at the peak of his powers.
