The Kaio Jorge saga continues to rumble on with three clubs in the running to land him at the moment, according to a report.
MilanNews reports that Milan spoke with the entourage of the player and managed to get a verbal agreement over personal terms, while Juventus obtained a written agreement with the player and his agents on Monday which puts the Bianconeri in an advantageous position.
Santos would have liked to accept the €5m offer from Benfica – which is at the moment the highest bid received – but it seems the player is not convinced. Milan will not participate in auctions and their position remains the same as in recent weeks: either the player arrives in January for free (his contract expires on December 31st) or this summer for a small compensation fee of €1-2m.
It is a risky strategy because in the meantime other teams have had time to enter the race, so Milan may now turn towards other solutions for the attack in the next few days.
