JORGINHO’S agent has confirmed Chelsea have offered him a new contract – but he admits the star is tempted by a return to Napoli.
The Brazilian-born Italian international, 31, will become a free agent at the end of the season.
He has been linked with a host of clubs with Newcastle keen to keep him in the Premier League.
Juventus want to bring him back to Italy while Barcelona are also in the chase for the Euro 2020 winner.

But Jorginho’s representative, Joao Santos, has now touched on the possibility of his client making an emotional return to his old club Napoli.
