Chelsea needed Jorginho more than Man City - Sarri

Chelsea transfer news Maurizio Sarri

"I have no reaction on the agent", Sarri said. "Pep has great midfielders, central midfielders".

The 26-year-old has a year to run on his current contract and has been heavily linked with a move prior to Thursday's transfer window, with Real Madrid rumoured to be his most likely destination if he is sold.

Chelsea will still be without Eden Hazard, their attacker-in-chief who is yet to return to London from his post-World Cup break.

"It is very good for me, I am really happy here in the club, with my teammates, the supporters and the club in general", the Spanish worldwide told Chelsea's official website. It is a very hard match.

He learned the game thanks to his mum, Maria Tereza Freitas, teaching him to play football on the beaches of the South American country as a child. It depends especially on him, I think.

Manchester City's pursuit of Jorginho faltered because Chelsea had a more pressing need for the Italy midfielder.

"I don't know. I am not happy about the situation but I would like to talk to him".

"I don't know if he will be able to play on Sunday, but he has nothing serious", Sarri said.

Despite some encouraging moments towards the end of the first half, Chelsea performed in disjointed fashion at Wembley and were fortunate not to concede more goals than one in each half to Sergio Aguero. "In this moment there is no problem for Hazard".

At this venue, in May, Antonio Conte won the FA Cup and found it was not enough to keep his job having trailed in 30 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League and upset the players. The Belgian is also wanted by Madrid and, according to his agent, has made it clear that he wants to leave.
