The Italy international has long been linked with a move back to his homeland, with interest reported from Juventus as well as former club Napoli.

Jorginho has poured cold water over rumors of his possible Chelsea exit saying he is “really happy” at Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho quickly established himself as a mainstay in the Chelsea midfield after arriving from Napoli in the summer of 2018.

However, the 29-year-old was not viewed as an indispensable figure in the starting XI during Frank Lampard’s tenure which sparked speculations about his future.

With Thomas Tuchel at the helm, he is once again enjoying a stalwart role, having started 10 of the 11 games under the former Paris Saint-Germain boss.

“At the moment, how am I going to think about the future two years from now, having what I still have to play this season. Then the Euro is coming,” Jorginho told TNT Sports ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash with Porto.

“So, honestly, there’s no way to think ahead. In fact, I’m very happy here. I’m really happy here. So I don’t think about anything else either.

“Now, at the moment, there’s no reason to think about what will happen in two years, for example.”

“[The Napoli links] will always exist. There will always be all of that. But there’s no way I can think of anything else right now.”
