The Brazilian star will play for Juventus next winter.
Brazilian media have claimed that Kaio Jorge has signed a pre-contract withJuventus
that will be valid from January 2022, thus ruling out the possibility of joining Milan and Benfica.
The 19-year-old Santos star has a contract until December 31, 2021, so he is legally able to negotiate with other clubs. Milan had tried to sign him a few weeks ago and had reached an agreement with the player.
However, UOL Esporte claimed that Jorge had also entered into negotiations with Juventus and had already signed a contract with the club. Thus, he will be added to the Bianconeri as a free agent, and his negotiations with Milan and Benfica are over.
Benfica tried to reduce the transfer fee to €10 million by offering Gilberto. But Juventus, regardless of Milan's negotiations with the player, entered into direct negotiations with him and were able to obtain his agreement. Reports suggest that Juventus are ready to pay a small fee immediately to sign Kaio, which turned out to be a success in the negotiations.
