Jorginho will ‘100 per cent’ remain at Chelsea for the remaining two years of his contract, and may even extend his stay in west London, claims the midfeilder’s agent.

The 29-year-old is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2023 and has remained an important figure in the first team since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as manager in January.

The Italy international has made 20 Premier League appearances and started all seven of the Champions League games that he has been available for.

However, there has been talk of a summer return to his former club Napoli, fuelled by both player and agent in recent weeks.

Earlier this month Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, told Radio Marte: ‘If Napoli will make an offer, we’ll evaluate it.

‘He had a great time in Naples and he has many friends over there.’

However, Santos has now said quite the opposite and says there is no chance the midfielder will change clubs before 2023 as he focuses on representing Italy in the forthcoming European Championship and World Cup.

‘He has a two-year contract with Chelsea,’ the agent told Tuttomercato. ‘He is thinking about playing in the European Championships and then the World Cup in Qatar.

‘He will remain at Chelsea, one hundred per cent’

Asked about the potential of extending his contract at Stamford Bridge, Santos said: ‘We will talk about it in a few months.’

Jorginho has made 126 appearances for Chelsea in under three seasons at the club and has been a big part of the team under Maurizio Sarri, Frank Lampard and now Tuchel.

Despite this he has been regularly linked with a move away throughout his Blues career, although he is partly to blame, with the Brazilian-born star telling Canale 21 earlier this month that he deeply misses his former home in Italy.

‘There are no words to describe how much I miss Naples,’ he said.

‘Who wouldn’t miss Naples? It’s so cold in London, they don’t even know what the sun is!’
