Jorginho unlikely to follow Maurizio Sarri to Juventus as former Chelsea boss plans to mould Miralem Pjanic into his midfield metronome

Maurizio Sarri is not planning for Juventus to swoop on Chelsea for midfielder Jorginho.

Jorginho arrived from Napoli for a fee £57million last summer at the behest of Sarri.

The new manager at Stamford Bridge saw the Brazil-born Italy international as the key to the way he wanted his team to play.

Some fans turned on him and Sarri’s style of play when a positive start to last season faded in midwinter.

For them, Jorginho came to epitomise the sluggish nature of Chelsea’s football with too many sideways passes.

But there appears to be no prospect of Sarri coming to his rescue again after leaving London to sign a three-year deal in Turin.

The newly-unveiled Juventus boss admires Miralem Pjanic and believes he can mould him into a similar type of midfielder.

This will enable Juve to continue with their pursuit of established targets such as Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen.

Jorginho will be left to revive his career at Chelsea under a new manager, expected to be Frank Lampard.

The 27-year-old midfielder has another four years on his contract in London.
