Barcelona is reportedly considering signing a Chelsea player.

The Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, who only has 10 months left on his Stamford Bridge deal, is reportedly being considered by Barcelona as a free transfer. The Italian international’s contract with the west London club has not yet been renewed, and this could result in his departure for Camp Nou.

According to reports, the Blaugrana are looking for a replacement for Sergio Busquets, who has served as the center of the midfield at Camp Nou since 2008. The contract for the 35-year-old player expires next summer, and Barcelona is not anticipated to extend it.

The Spanish powerhouses have their sights set on Jorginho instead because, according to the Camp Nou administration, the Italian midfielder “ticks all the criteria.”

The deep-lying playmaker will be eligible to enter contract negotiations with Barca if he is unable to extend his deal with Chelsea before January 2023. For the Catalan team, who have long struggled financially, the prospective trade would undoubtedly be a bit of a steal. Barcelona will not be required to compensate their English rivals for the services of the Chelsea star if he completes the remainder of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

He won’t be the only player to move from Stamford Bridge to Camp Nou; the Blues have recently lost a number of players to the Spanish team. Last summer, players like Marcos Alonso and Andreas Christensen went on free transfers, and other prospective additions like Raphinha and Jules Kounde decided to join Barcelona rather than Chelsea.

Raphinha has given an explanation for why he selected Barcelona over Chelsea.
Despite having reached an agreement with Leeds United to sign the dynamic winger, the Blaugrana entered the scene and quickly nabbed the player. Raphinha eventually explained why he chose to travel to Spain over the west London team, stating that it was his dream to play for Barca.

The attacker added to La Vanguardia that he has supported Barcelona since since Ronaldinho joined the team about twenty years ago. He explained that he valued his dream above everything else, saying that the scenario was less about money and more about passion.
