MetiNews.Com - The Italian midfielder has been consistently linked with a return to Serie A this season with former club Napoli rumoured as a potential destination for the Chelsea star
Breaking News ! Chelsea midfielder Jorginho admitted he would like to return to Napoli just moments after helping the Blues complete a 2-0 victory over Porto in the Champions League. Jorginho started in midfield alongside Mateo Kovacic in last night's victory and played a key role in the opening goal scored by Thomas Tuchel's side. It was the 29-year-old who slid a pass into the feet of Mason Mount just after the half-hour mark. The England international, in one motion, controlled the ball, turned and then steadied himself before he fired a finish into the far corner. Jorginho arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2018. He was signed by Maurizio Sarri and was a key figure in the side under the Italian coach.

And moments after helping the Blues overcome Porto last night, and receiving the man-of-the-match award from UEFA, Jorginho said in an interview with Sky Italia that he could be keen on a return to Naples if the opportunity arose. "When you live in Naples you can never forget," he said during a post-match interview. "I had a wonderful experience and I am very fond of the city and the fans. “Now honestly, I’m not thinking about it because my concentration is all on Chelsea. However, if there is the possibility, one day, you don’t know when, to return, of course, I’d like it.”
