The 19-year-old striker is now negotiating with the Turin club for next season
Santos star Kaio Jorge has refused a contract offer from Benfica and is now in advanced negotiations with Juventus to join the Italian outfit in January 2022, Purpose can confirm.
After Santos accepted a transfer proposal from Benfica for the 19-year-old striker, he personally refuted the approach with his thoughts on Serie A.
Juventus will now evaluate whether he will try to sign Kaio Jorge this summer with immediate effect from Kaio Jorge with an offer of € 1-2 million, or if they will have to wait for a free prize in January.
How will the transaction work?
Kaio Jorge can negotiate directly with interested parties, as there are less than six months left before the end of his contract, which lasts until December. He is managed by Giuliano Bertolucci, who spoke to Italian clubs.
Benfica’s offer was directly to Santos, but because the player did not agree to it, the deal could not go through.
If Kaio Jorge moves to Juventus in January, he will leave for free and Santos will receive nothing.
However, Santos will have to receive financial compensation if there is talk of an immediate release in August’s international transfer window.
Because Santos has allowed his contract to expire almost completely, they can in no significant way earn money from his hype through the transfer market.
