Jorginho has signed for Arsenal from Chelsea
Arsenal have signed Chelsea midfielder Jorginho for £12 million after admitting they were unable to persuade Brighton to sell Moisés Caicedo.
The Premier League leaders have been looking for midfield reinforcements after losing Mohamed Elneny to a knee injury, and they have made a move for Jorginho after failing with two bids for Caicedo.
Negotiations with Chelsea moved rapidly, and just under three hours before the deadline, the Italy international, whose contract was set to expire at the end of the season, was announced as an Arsenal player. The fee is guaranteed at £10 million, with the remainder paid in add-ons.
After signing for the Gunners, he said:
“I was a bit surprised, but I took the opportunity of this amazing challenge. It’s an important shirt. It’s an amazing club.”
Arsenal has granted Jorginho an 18-month contract with the option of an additional year, hoping that recruiting someone with Jorginho’s expertise will help their title push. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta had tried to sign him in the summer of 2020 but failed.
“He was a big influence because I know that he tried a few times to get me before and it didn’t happen due to other reasons, not because of my wishes.”
The midfielder has frequently divided opinion at Chelsea, but he was instrumental in the club winning the Champions League in 2021. He also helped Italy win the Euros in 2020 and was named UEFA Player of the year.
What is the Net Worth of Jorginho?
Arsenal’s Italian midfielder has a net worth of around $20 million as of 2023. In 2018 he signed a contract with Chelsea that earned him a salary of 9 Million Euros (7.8 Million Pounds) per year.
He was previously married to Natalia Leteri
Jorginho was married to Natalia Leteri for three years from 2017 to 2019. From their marriage, they have two children: a son Victori and a daughter Alicia. Not much is known about their marriage and divorce as the midfielder likes keeping his personal life private like many footballers.
Who is Jorginho dating after his divorce?
Jorginho is currently dating Catherine, who performs under the stage name Cat Cavelli. She is a singer who is famous for her appearance on The Voice UK. She made an appearance on Ireland’s You’re A Star when she was just seventeen.
The couple started dating after his divorce from Leteri. There were rumors that Catherine was the reason the couple split in the first place.
From their marriage, they have a son named Jax.
Catherine was previously married to actor Jude Law and has a daughter named Ada with him. She gave up singing after the birth of Ada.
There were rumors in January 2022 that the footballer was on a celebrity dating app called Raya after fans spotted his profile on the app.
A fan linked up with his account and noted it did not include the ‘just here for friends’ message. It also linked to his official Instagram account and noted that he was ‘visiting Miami from London.’
The user who matched with him said:
“I was shocked because I know he has a girlfriend from what I’d read before. His profile’s full of pictures of him playing for Chelsea or Italy. There is another shot of him topless in a pool. Our profiles matched but I didn’t speak to him because I knew he was with someone.”
However, the rumors were denied after the pair shared their date night pictures on Instagram. Catherine uploaded a picture of them together with the caption:
“He’s playing away…with me.”
