Santos have officially announced that their 19-year-old forward will soon join the Italian giants, Juventus.
, whose contract with the Brazilian club expires in December 2021, has been linked with two of the Serie A giants,Juventus
and Milan in recent weeks.
The Bianconeri, however, informed Santos a few days ago that they have reached an initial agreement with the 19-year-old star.
In this regard, president Andres Rueda confirmed in a statement onSantos’ official website
that the talented forward will be joining the Serie A side, Juve, in the near future.
The statement reads:
“Juventus met the conditions we had set and which we believe are the best at this time for the club, given the scenario we found ourselves in.
“Good luck to Kaio Jorge and we hope he will have a great path going forward.”
According to the reports, Kaio will join Juventus on a €3m deal. Santos will have the first refusal if the Bianconeri decide to loan the player out to a South American club. The Brazilian club will also retrain 5 percent of the profit should Juve sell the 19-year-old in the future.
Kaio is expected to have his medical examinations in Italy by Thursday.
