Not planning to stick around forever
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho hopes he can return to the Serie A after he left Napoli to join the Blues in the summer transfer window.
The Italian has been getting rave reviews since moving to Stamford Bridge and has racked up some incredible passing stats.
Most notably, he completed more passes against Newcastle than the whole of Rafa Benitez’s side managed during the game.
He has also chipped in with a goal from the penalty spot and it’s safe to say Maurizio Sarri will be happy he brought the player with him after his Napoli exit.

Serie A return on the cards
Now, Jorginho has been speaking about his time in the Serie A.
He explained that there were ‘various things’ behind his move to Chelsea but wants to return to Italy one day.
“There were various things behind my departure from Napoli,” Jorginho explained, as quoted by Football.london.
“The will of just one party is not enough. Serie A will always be one of the best leagues in the world. I hope to go back one day.
“There’s a difference in tempo and physicality between English and Italian football. However, you can’t not miss a magnificent place such as Napoli.
“To understand the difference with the infrastructure in England you have to experience it. At Cobham, we have 38 pitches. Enough said.
“Sarri is enjoying his adventure in England but he’s not changing much, he’s sticking to his habits.”
Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga issues a challenge to Man United’s David De Gea
Jorginho isn’t the only big name that joined Chelsea this summer.
That is because goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga cost even more than the Italian.
Now, he’s targeting David De Gea’s Spanish national team spot.
