Chelsea midfielder Jorginho admits he is missing Naples and moans ‘it’s so cold in London’… fuelling talk of summer return to Serie A
The Naples lifestyle could lure Jorginho back to Italy this summer, with the Chelsea midfielder admitting London’s weather is grinding him down.
Maurizio Sarri’s favourite followed the Italian boss from Napoli to west London in 2018 and has already reached 126 matches for the Blues. Under Thomas Tuchel he is a key player in a formidable Stamford Bridge outfit.
However, Jorginho’s agent has stirred-up rumours of a Blues exit, revealing ‘we are thinking about a return to Serie A’ and pointing-out that the star ‘had a great time in Naples, and he has many friends over there.’

The Italian international enjoyed four successful years at Napoli and would be a popular arrival
In four years with Napoli the 29-year-old helped lift the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa, and he’d be welcomed home with open arms in southern Italy.
‘There are no words to describe how much I miss Naples,’ the Brazil-born Italian told Canale 21.
‘Who wouldn’t miss Naples? It’s so cold in London, they don’t even know what the sun is.’
Sarri, who is unemployed after being sacked by Juventus, is being touted for a return to Napoli too – with Gennaro Gattuso on the ropes.

The Serie A side’s maverick owner Aurelio De Laurentiis is reportedly set on bringing Sarri back this summer after watching his team fall out of the Europa League at the last-32 and lose in the Coppa Italia semi-final to Atalanta.
Napoli are still in the hunt for top-four and are on a strong run of form, having beaten AC Milan and Roma amid four victories in five games. They lie fifth, two points behind Atalanta ahead.
‘I really hope they can get into the Champions League, we’re all supporting them here. Of course they can do it,’ Jorginho added.
