OFFICIAL: cost of Portuguese youngsters Bruno Jordao and Pedro Neto finally revealed
The rich sale of Keita Balde to AS Monaco two summers ago brought two players to the Formello, two elements that are still unknown to the general public. These two, are Portuguese youngsters Bruno Jordao (on loan from S.C. Braga, 19-year old midfielder) and Pedro Neto (on loan from S.C. Braga, 18-year old winger), but one question remained from the operation: how much was paid to acquire them?
The total costs of the operation have been revealed: 11.5 million euros on a two-year loan until 30 June 2019. The cost was initially only 5.2 million euros up to 2018 (without ever having played an official race), but now past that date keeping them for an extra year, the biancocelesti will have to pay the full amount.
The deal, managed by Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes, has allowed both players to train with Lazio, however, an official match has not yet come for either of the two.
