Juventus make €18m bid for Santos prodigy Kaio Jorge

Juventus have made their opening move for Santos starlet Kaio JorgeTuttomercatoweb reports.

18-year-old Jorge is the latest super-talent off the Santos production line and has European clubs after him.

AC Milan recently joined Juve in the race for the striker, while Bayer Leverkusen are also interested.

According to TMW, even Chelsea and Real Madrid have had light contacts about signing Jorge.

FC Porto would offer Jorge an immediate first team place and could present serious competition.

However, Juventus have made their approach by asking Santos for Jorge on a two-year loan with an obligation to buy for €18m.

Santos turned down that offer since they had already lowered the asking price from €30m to €25m.

There is a feeling that if the payment structure is acceptable, Santos could accept a €22m bid.

Jorge is still on the fringes of Santos’ first team, but scouts from Europe see huge potential in the Brazilian.
