Chelsea star Jorginho will beat N’Golo Kante and Kevin De Bruyne to be named UEFA’s Player of the Year, according to leaks in the Italian media.
The midfielder is up against his team-mate Kante and Manchester City playmaker De Bruyne for the award after UEFA whittled down their shortlist to three contenders.
The likes of Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski, who won it last year, were both overlooked as the three Premier League players got the nod – and now reports claim it will be Jorginho who will take home the highly-coveted gong.
Tuttomercatoweb report that sources close to UEFA have told them Jorginho will be named the winner at Thursday’s Champions League draw in Istanbul after beating off competition from Kante and De Bruyne.
The 29-year-old enjoyed a sensational campaign in Europe last season and played an instrumental role in helping Chelsea claim Champions League glory.
