Chelsea determined to offload Jorginho if they leave Man Utd and Arsenal behind in Declan Rice transfer race
Chelsea are keeping eyes on the midfielder and are ready to offload Jorginho.
Chelsea are reportedly ready to sell Jorginho if they beat Manchester United and Arsenal to the £70million transfer of West Ham’s midfielder Declan Rice.
West Ham are reportedly ready to cash in on the defensive-minded midfielder from a squad, which is the result of economic issues due to coronavirus outbreak and the desire for David Moyes to form new the team in the long-term. Although Rice is the most prized ‘asset’ for the club to recover from the ‘struggling-period’ caused by NCOVID-19.
On the other hand, his arrival at the Blues will surely hit the place of Jorginho, which would result in Jorginho spell ending at Chelsea.
Rice recently talked about the disappointment of being released by Chelsea after being there for almost eight years in the club’s academy.

“I had to overcome a massive disappointment of being released by Chelsea at the age of 14,” Rice told Sky Sports.
“That was everything I ever knew to be honest. From nine to 14, training there Monday to Friday, playing games, and to get told you won’t be a part of that any more was a major shock. I never thought it would have to happen, but it did.”
“And then I had the fortunate chance to sign for either Fulham or West Ham and chose West Ham and started a whole new chapter.”
“I knew it was going to be tough, but always as a kid, I wanted to be a professional footballer. Nothing was ever going to get in the way of me working as hard as possible to become that. I was just so driven and wanted to be the best I could be. I had to make sacrifices, move away from home, move into new digs, and now all the decisions that I made have played out really well.”, he further explained.
