Jorginho offered himself to Barcelona a few days ago, reports Marca’s Luis Rojo.
The Catalans have decided against signing the Chelsea midfielder. His current deal with the Blues expires in July 2023, so he would be available for free next year.
The club do not see the 30-year-old as Sergio Busquets’ successor, although he is also a deep-lying playmaker whose style of play is quite similar.
Jorginho had a brilliant 2021/22 campaign and finished third in last year’s Ballon d’Or vote.
