Moise Kean has completed his return to Juventus, the Italians confirmed on Tuesday. The 21-year-old forward has been signed on a two-year loan for a €7m fee from Everton. At the end of his loan spell Juventus will then have the option to sign him for a €28m fee. Through several performance related bonuses that amount can rise with another three million euros.
After the Italians decided to sell Cristiano Ronaldo, head coach Massimo Allegri wanted to strengthen his attack. They have been linked with several forwards over the past few weeks, but decided to re-sign Kean. The striker was sold to Everton for 30 million euros to Everton in 2019 but failed to impress for the Toffees in the Premier League. Last season he spent on loan at Paris Saint-Germain.
Allegri has worked with Kean in the past and he had urged the board to negotiate terms with Kean and Everton. Other names who were linked to Juventus were Eden Hazard, Mauro Icardi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano already revealed that there has not been any contact between Juventus, the clubs and the players. Juve’s main target now is extending the contract of Paulo Dybala.
