AS Monaco invest in future talent

AS Monaco invest in future talent

By Staff Writer - January 31, 2017


AS Monaco have signed Brazilian international defender Jorge on a five-year contract worth €8.5 million. The 20-year-old was part of the Brazilian team that made it to the final of the U-20 World Championships in New Zealand in 2015, alongside new teammate Boschilia.

Jorge – whose full name is Jorge Marco de Oliveira Moraes – made more than 80 appearances for Flamengo, scoring five goals, and won his first senior Brazil cap last week.

“Jorge is part of this talented generation of Brazilians whom we are monitoring closely. He’s a lively player with very good crossing ability, who I’m sure will in time settle into the team’s style of play perfectly,” said ASM’s vice-president Vadim Vasilyev.

Commenting that Jorge’s arrival is part of a long-term plan, Mr Vasilyev added, “In Monaco, he has everything he needs to adapt and develop with the squad. We have high hopes for him in the future.”

For his part, Jorge commented: “The club’s management convinced me to join AS Monaco’s project. This is a big ambitious club. I want to do everything possible to follow in the footsteps of my countrymen Fabinho, Jemerson and Boschilia, who have come a long way since arriving in Monaco.”
