AC Milan have reportedly been overtaken in the race to land Kaio Jorge from Santos by their Serie A rivals Juventus.
According to SportMediaset (via MilanLive), the negotiation between Milan and Santos is getting complicated, as Milan are set on not paying a large fee given that the striker’s contract expires on December 31st, meaning that in six months he could arrive at no cost.
There are complications are due to the inclusion of another club, as Juventus are apparently wanting to close the deal immediately. New head coach Max Allegri has asked for another striker to complete the attacking department for next season along with Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata.
The Old Lady have overtaken the Rossoneri and are willing to pay the €6m that Santos want which is double the €3m that Milan have offered. The deal could apparently be closed either today or tomorrow.
