Kaio Jorge admits he doesn’t know if Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at Juventus and reveals he spoke to PSG star Neymar before joining the Old Lady.
Ronaldo’s future in Turin appears to be in doubt, given that his agent Jorge Mendes is in talks with Manchester City. Kaio Jorge has been training with Cristiano Ronaldo for a few days since moving to Turin from Santos.
The Brazilian striker was unveiled as a new Juventus player today.

“I am here to have fun and learn, I want to score as many goals as possible,” the 19-year-old said at a press conference.
“Juventus is a dream come true, I am happy to be here. It’s the result of my hard work. It will be important to adapt well, on and off the pitch.
“This is a massive club, everybody is nice and polite, I hope I can help the team,” the Brazilian continued.
“Cristiano is giving me tips. He is a fantastic person, from whom I can learn so much. I am happy to train with him, but he hasn’t spoken to us about his future. We don’t know if he will stay, but I hope so. I hope I can become like him one day.”
The Brazilian had reached an agreement with Juventus ahead of a potential free move in January as his contract with Santos expired in December. However, the Bianconeri managed to reach an agreement with Santos to sign the striker immediately.

“Santos is in my heart and I could not forget about them,” Kaio Jorge said.
“There was a common sense during negotiations between the clubs.”
Kaio Jorge has picked the number 21 and spoke to Neymar before his move to Juventus.
“I picked the No.21 because it belonged to many top players at Juventus: Pirlo, Zidane, Dybala and Higuain,” the striker revealed.
“Neymar told me he was happy I could join play for Juventus, I have no doubts I can grow as a person and as a footballer here.”
The 19-year-old, who had snubbed Milan and Benfica to join the Bianconeri sustained a muscle injury during a training session on Monday and will remain out of action for about a month.
“It’s nothing serious, I will return soon to give my best,” the striker concluded.
