The transfer confirmation revealed Juevtnus had accepted the terms of the Brazilian side, and the player will now be released to play in Europe. Various reports suggest that the Serie A club will pay a total fee of €3 million with another €1 million in potential add-ons.
Jorge will be heading to Turin this week to take a medical exam and reportedly sign a contract through 2026. Juventus weren’t the only club expressing interest in the player as AC Milan and SL Benfica were in the running and offered more money.
