Reports: Moise Kean agrees to personal terms with Juventus
With so few days before the summer transfer window closes, Juventus has little time to try to fill the place left by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
And it turns out that the current situation is forcing Juve to go really fast.
There may be a handful of names related to Juventus depending on which Italian media post you read. But when it comes to who Juve seem to be focusing on, it seems to be former primavera product Moise Kean, who was sold by the club two years ago and has every desire not to spend another season with Everton. (Or at least anywhere near Liverpool.) According to SportItalia’s Alfredo Pedulla, Juventus and Kean have agreed personal terms on a contract if he is to return to the club.
There are conflicting reports on how a Kean deal would be structured. In Pedulla’s report on Friday night, he said Juventus will secure a loan from Kean with a € 25million bond to buy him next summer. However, according to Sky Sport Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus would like Kean on loan but without any obligation to purchase next summer.
Everton, as you can probably imagine, would like Juventus to have a fixed purchase obligation given that the 21-year-old Kean is not part of new manager Rafa Benitez’s plans this season. (If you appear in the early rounds of the Carabao Cup and are part of one of England’s biggest teams, chances are you are by no means a regular starter.)
Other names linked to Juventus: Maurio Icardi, Giacomo Raspadori and Gianluca Scamacca, who was last linked with a move to Turin during the winter transfer window in January.
Di Marzio maintains that Kean is at the top of Juve’s list of potential attackers.
As you can imagine, Kean has the upper hand to join Juventus in the dying days of the current transfer window as Allegri knows him well compared to the other three names above. Remember, it was Allegri who gave then-teenage Kean the first handful of senior team experiences he gained both domestically and in Europe during the 2018-19 season.
And while it wouldn’t be cheap, Kean is definitely a downside contender who has been shown by Italian media over the past two days to want to return to Juventus.
