Tuttosport: Milan and Chelsea want €30m Santos starlet but Juventus push ahead

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in a battle with three other clubs for the signing of Santos starlet Kaio Jorge, according to the latest reports.

La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira recently claimed that Milan are firmly in the race to sign Jorge, while Alessandro Jacobone reported on Monday that Milan are in talks with agent Giuliano Bertolucci over two of his clients, one being Ajax winger David Neres and the other being Jorge.

German outlet Kicker then provided an update on Tuesday claiming that Bayer Leverkusen and Chelsea are also in the hunt for the 18-year-old.

According to the paper edition of Tuttosport on Wednesday (via MilanNews), Juventus director Fabio Paratici has not given up on the idea of signing Jorge, who is also attracting interest from Milan, Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen.

The Brazilian will not lower their requests from €30million, and for this reason the Juventus chief is looking for alternative and imaginative ways to secure his signature.

The first is that of the two-year loan, the second is to find another club with which to conclude the operation in partnership, while the other interested clubs watch on.
