Jorginho set to stay at Chelsea this summer as agent reveals nobody can afford transfer fee Lampard is demanding – The Sun

JORGINHO is unlikely to move this summer with prospective buyers unable to match Chelsea's valuation of the midfielder, according to his agent.

After the Blues began to splash their cash with the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, Joao Santos believes his client will be slapped with a high price tag.

Many clubs are tightening their belts amid the coronavirus pandemic although Chelsea are well-placed to spend having gone 12 months without a major signing.

Santos told CalcioMercato24.com: "It will be a unique market because nobody knows when it will return to normal, if we play the next season without fans then nobody will be able to afford signings.

"The next season could be behind closed doors, and that's a big deal.

"Chelsea have already spent because they were unable to buy last year.

"[Jorginho's] price has certainly increased in recent years , in London he did well and has played for the national team.

"He is now a Chelsea captain and has accumulated a lot of experience in the Champions League and in the Europa League.
