Done Deal: Real Madrid have signed Brazilian wonder kid

The Brazilian club acknowledged they were over a barrel because Juve signed the 19-year-old to a pre-contract agreement and his deal expires in December.

Kaio Jorge has already signed a pre-contract agreement with Juve from January 1, 2022, so the only options for Santos are to sell now for a minimal fee or let him leave as a free agent.

He finished that tournament as his club's top scorer, having netted five times in 12 games on the way to the decider.

Taking advantage of his expiring contract, which means he could leave for free in December, Juve have extracted relatively favourable terms from Santos for the sale of their prized youngster.

Juventus and Santos have agreed terms for Kaio Jorge to arrive in Turin, reportedly for €1.5m now and €1.5m in 2022.

Santos will also bag 5 per cent of the profits of any future sale, as well as holding first refusal on a loan move should the forward move back to Brazil.

Jorge made his professional debut in 2018, where he has made 84 appearances and scored 17 goals for the Brazilian giants

Benfica had also shown interest in Kaio but he looks set to choose Turin after bursting onto the scene at Vila Belmiro.
