Benfica aren’t very happy with the news that Wolverhampton Wanderers are working on the signing of Santos wonderkid Kaio Jorge, according to reports from Portugal.
Newspaper Correio da Manhã today writes that the Eagles were ‘preparing themselves’ to try to make the signing, and then their former manager Bruno Lage ‘intervened’ by telling Wolves to go for the move.
It’s written that Wolverhampton have ‘deflected’ the player to the Molineux, as if the signing was already done, even though there’s no more information about it.
The outlet claims that this situation ’caused discomfort’ at the Estádio da Luz, since Benfica had the striker ‘referenced for a long time’.
Meanwhile, the Brazilian media continues to claim that Santos are still to receive an official offer for Kaio Jorge.
When the reports from the weekend came out, it was first ESPN Brasil who said the club still hadn’t been contacted regarding the transfer.
Then A Tribuna journalist Bruno Lima shared the same information, saying no offers have been made so far.
Kaio Jorge’s contract with Santos expires at the end of the year, and the first claims about Wolves’ interest, which came from the Portuguese press, said the Premier League side are offering €15m for his move.
