Midfielder opens up and tells fans that he is very happy at the Bridge ahead of contract talks with Chelsea board

Jorginho has told fans that he is very happy at the club amid rumours that he will be handed a new contract by Thomas Tuchel.

Jorginho has been impressing in the Blues midfielder alongside Croatian star Mateo Kovacic, with the pair helping Tuchel to go unbeaten through his opening eight games as Chelsea boss.

But that has not stopped speculation in the media that the Italian midfielder is open to the idea of making a move back to Seria A, where the likes of Juventus and Napoli are reportedly ready to make an offer for the star.

However, it is also not a secret that Tuchel would like to keep hold of the midfielder and recent reports have claimed that talks over a new contract will be opened in the coming weeks, something that has been boosted by the latest words from Jorginho

Jorginho has told Chelsea’s official website of his current standing in west London: “I’m very happy because the team is doing very well, working hard, trying to understand what the coach wants.

“I think it’s the right way to move forward.

“He understood the characteristics of the players and the way he wants to play is good for our characteristics.

“So he understood that and he’s trying to give us the advice and the right way to work and then the results are coming.”

So even though he is not the most exciting player to watch in that Chelsea side, it would be a shock to see him leave the club in the coming transfer window when he is getting so much game time.

And it would not also be a shock to see him handed a new contract.
