- The 30-year-old Italy international could leave the club with Juventus interested
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was left raging on the touchline, despite his side booking their place in the FA Cup final with a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
The Blues struggled to play their normal fluid football for the majority of the first half, with both sides unable to get a foothold in the game due to their similar formations.
Patrick Vieira’s side, however, did notice Jorginho was dwelling on the ball for too long and his all round game was not quick enough.

Jorginho, 30, struggled to help get his side going in the first half which left boss Tuchel raged
The Italy international drew a foul on 28 minutes, with Tuchel seen raging in his technical area. It was not the challenge the German was unhappy about, but the fact Jorginho was spending too much time on the ball, and not moving it quick enough.
In the second half, there was another incident where Tuchel was left frustrated by the 30-year-old. Jorginho played a poor pass towards Marcos Alonso with Tuchel throwing his arms up in annoyance.
Fans spotted the altercations between Jorginho and boss Tuchel, and took to Twitter to voice their opinions, believing the midfielder could be sold in the summer.
Juventus-linked Jorginho may not have had the best game in a Chelsea shirt, but he did play a part in helping side side reach the FA Cup final.
It was not the most comprehensive performance by Tuchel’s side, but they managed to get the job done in the second half with goals from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount.
Loftus-Cheek found some fortune to claim the ball just inside the box on 65 minutes, and rifled a powerful strike past Jack Butland in the Palace goal to give his side the lead.

Mason Mount then doubled Chelsea’s lead making it 2-0 to book his sides place in the final
Mount doubled Chelsea’s advantage slipping a low finish beyond Butland with 14 minutes left to ensure his side progressed.
Palace’s best chance of the match came from defender Joachim Andersen, who could only see his header drift past Edouard Mendy’s post late on.
Liverpool won the Carabao Cup final on penalties in February against Chelsea, but Tuchel’s side will have the chance for revenge against the Reds on May 14 in the FA Cup final.
