It isn’t the best time to be a Chelsea fan. While rivals have strengthened, the Blues appear confused and lost somewhere in the middle of a forest.
The former champion’s managerial drama is still ongoing with Antonio Conte in charge while Maurizio Sarri continues to be highly linked.
Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Willian’s future are pretty much in the air. However, there could be glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel concerning the club’s transfer dealings.
Jorginho, who seemed destined for Manchester City, could be actually heading to Stamford Bridge. The Citizens are apparently dragging feet with Chelsea taking advantage.
City reportedly stalled paying the requested £57m and instead offered around £10m less. Chelsea, meanwhile, agreed to meet Napoli’s valuation of the midfielder. The 26-year-old’s mother may have confirmed that report by following her recent social media activity.
OMGGG Jorginho on his way to London. The day is FINALLY here 😀💙

Jorginho’s mum has started following FA Cup winners on Instagram to fuel speculation that the Napoli midfielder could be heading there.
Chelsea faithful have gone nuts on social since the news surfaced. Jorginho has developed into one the best midfielders in Europe under Sarri. Last season, he averaged around 97 passes per game – the most in Europe’s top five leagues.
That would be an damming upgrade to the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater who garnered fewer.
