AC Milan join Barcelona in transfer chase for Chelsea star Jorginho who could leave for FREE in summer

THE future for Jorginho is heating up after AC Milan reportedly entered the transfer race to sign him next summer.

Chelsea star Jorginho is free to leave the club when if his contract is not renewed by next summer.

Barcelona have been an interested party for some time now.

However, despite Barcelona’s long-term interest in the Italian who has reportedly already made a transfer commitment to them, they are no longer the only ones with an interest.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Serie A champions Milan are best-positioned alongside Barcelona to sign the 30-year-old.

They report the two clubs have “taken the lead” and made “important moves” to push a deal through.

Barcelona want Jorginho as a replacement for legend Sergio Busquets, whose own contract is running out next summer as well.

The pair play the same position and are both good on the ball, with the “Barcelona DNA” demanding technically proficient players.

But Sport’s report indicates his next move could come down to the contract offered to him.

In this sense, the Blaugrana are at an instant disadvantage due to their already soaring wage bill, their precarious finances, and the relatively low tax level in Italy.

Previous reports have suggested that Jorginho has already rejected a contract proposal from Chelsea due to wanting a package worth £150,000 per week.

Jorginho has previous experience in Serie A, spending his entire career in Italy prior to his Chelsea move in 2018.

Four of those years were spent at Napoli, with ex-boss Maurizio Sarri coaxing him into the Chelsea transfer.
