Mon 26 July 2021 | 15:21

Benfica have offered a deal for Santos starlet Kaio Jorge and Milan have changed their strategy and are not willing to spend more than €2-3 million on him.

Kaio Jorge

’s contract expires in December 2021 and

Santos

are ready to sell him on the cheap this summer.

Santos’ President Andres Rueda has confirmed that they have received an offer from a European club and although it was expected to be from Milan or Juventus, according to Calciomercato.com the bid was actually from

Benfica

.

Santos are also looking for a replacement for Jorge and therefore they jumped at the opportunity and made a counter-offer for the 22-year-old striker

Cristian Arango

, who is on loan at Millonarios from Benfica.

Now it seems the Portuguese and the Brazilian clubs might be able to reach an agreement because both clubs are interested in each other’s players which could facilitate a deal.

According to the reports,

Milan

have decided to change their strategy by lowering their offer to sign the 19-year-old Brazilian striker.

Initially, they were ready to pay €6 million for him but now they are not willing to spend more than €2-3 million on him as his contract is going to expire in just five months.
