Juventus FC appears to be beating out AC Milan for Santos FC forward Kaio Jorge. The teenager has reportedly signed a pre-contract with the Turin-based club, but the Rossoneri isn’t giving up without a fight.
According to Sky Italia (via MilanNews), Milan is trying to make one last dash to secure the player. The report states that they have made a €5-million offer to Santos as they want to steal the player away from Juventus.
Milan hopes to secure the transfer for the teenager this summer; meanwhile, Juventus will remain patient as they would like the player to arrive in January and avoid paying a transfer sum since Jorge’s contract expires in December.
Portuguese giant Benfica is also interested in the player; however, it doesn’t seem as though Jorge has any interest in heading to Portugal. It will be interesting to see what occurs as Santos wants to have a fee for the player before the summer window closes.
