New Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri won’t look to sign Chelsea FC midfielder Jorginho, according to a report in England.
The Sun is reporting that the former Chelsea FC manager is ready to place his faith in Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic rather than sign Jorginho from the Europa League winners.
The same article states that Sarri was initially thought to be ready to make Jorginho one of his first signings as Juventus boss given the Italy international’s importance to his system.
According to the same story, the Italian head coach is confident that Pjanic can fulfil the same role in his Juve team as Jorginho.
The Sun report goes on to add that Sarri would prefer to use the £60m that it would cost to sign the Chelsea FC holding midfielder towards putting together a big package to sign a creative midfielder such as Paul Pogba or Christian Eriksen.
Jorginho endured a difficult first season at Chelsea FC after Sarri signed the Brazilian-born Italian midfielder in a deal thought to be worth around £57m in the 2018 summer transfer window.
The 27-year-old has scored two goals in 37 games in the Premier League last term as Chelsea FC finished in third place in the table.
Jorginho won the Europa League with the Blues following a 4-1 victory over Arsenal in Baku.
