The Blues apparently refused the opportunity to sign the Bosnia & Herzegovina star, who has joined Barcelona since then
According to Italy international agent Joao Santos, Chelsea declined the opportunity to sign Miralem Pjanic from Juventus as part of a trade deal for Jorginho.

During the time in charge of Maurizio Sarri, Jorginho had been strongly linked to a return to Serie A with champions Juventus.

Juve replaced Sarri last month with Andrea Pirlo and signed Arthur from Barcelona but Pjanic headed in the opposite direction.

But the representative of Jorginho, Santos, says things would have turned out differently had Sarri stayed in place at the Allianz Stadium.

“Juventus had proposed a swap deal that included Miralem Pjanic, but that was not taken into account by the English side,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.

“[Juve sports director Fabio] Paratici never called me. Would he have transferred with Sarri to Juventus? I believe so.”

Since joining Napoli two years ago, Jorginho has had a mixed spell with Chelsea and has also been a goal for Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Roma.

And Santos says the 28-year-old, who is currently in international service with Italy, will look to find a new club if Blues manager Frank Lampard overlooks him for pick.

“He ‘s got a three year contract with Chelsea. It’s a long term, it’ll last until October 5,” he said.

“Should Chelsea think he’s no longer part of the project, I ‘d find an alternate solution.

“He played 40 games for Chelsea last year, and is an significant national team member.

“We have not received any official offers so far. A lot of clubs follow him and there aren’t many players with his characteristics in that role.”
