Journalist claims €60m Santos forward will join Barcelona amid Milan and Juventus links

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Juventus look set to miss out on Santos starlet Kaio Jorge as the forward is likely to join Barcelona, according to a report.

La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira recently claimed that Milan are firmly in the race to sign Jorge, having offered the 18-year-old the chance to immediately be a starter.

Tuttosport then followed that up earlier in the week by stating that Milan are indeed interested in the teenage forward, but Juventus are also believed to be in the hunt for Jorge, who has one goal in six senior appearances.

Radio Rossonera’s Pietro Balzano Prota went on a Twitch stream to give some information on the upcoming mercato, and he gave an update on Jorge.

As per @SightsMilan on Twitter, Prota claims that Juventus are the only club in Italy seriously interested in landing the Brazil U17 international, but that he is in fact likely to join Barcelona instead due to the fact his asking price is €60m.
