Chelsea fans are absolutely loving Maurizio Sarri’s first piece of business at Stamford Bridge, as the Blues sealed a £57m deal for Jorginho.
Just a few days ago, Chelsea fans were fearing the absolute worst. The team was starting pre-season training without a manager, no major signings looked likely, and Eden Hazard was linked with both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The tides have turned at Stamford Bridge though, as Jorginho followed his manager through the door on Saturday.

Manchester City had been chasing a deal for the Italian international for quite some time, but it seems the presence of Sarri was enough to tip the balance in the Blues’ favour.
If fans were worried about a lack of transfer activity they certainly aren’t now, and the wonderfully gifted Jorginho could soon be joined by the likes of Alisson, Aleksandr Golovin and Daniele Rugani according to Matt Law from The Telegraph.
Fans are absolutely over the moon about their first major breakthrough of the summer, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
