Juventus are looking at the possibility of selling Moise Kean this summer, despite not having paid to sign him permanently from Everton.
That’s according to TuttoMercatoWeb, who say the Italian giants are looking to get rid of Kean after their successful pursuit of Dusan Vlahovic in January.
Vlahovic arrived in a big-money move from Fiorentina and has been a massive hit in his first month in Turin, establishing himself as the star of the show for the Old Lady.
That’s left Kean further on the sidelines than he already was, with the striker having struggled to show any kind of form his return from Everton in the summer.
TMW explain that he moved back to Juventus on a two-year loan, with the Italian side initially paying €3m for this year’s loan and then €4m for next year, with a mandatory €28m clause included after that.
However, instead of using Kean next year, they would prefer to sign an expert centre-forward to compliment Vlahovic and then either sell the Everton loanee or loan him out and deal with his future in 2023.
Quite how either would work isn’t made clear given he is technically still an Everton player at this point, and they would be loaning a loanee.
The obvious answer is that Juventus find an agreement with Everton, but the Blues have no real need to negotiate given they are guaranteed another €32m in fees by the summer of 2023 thanks to that initial loan deal.
What the plan is, or if there is some sort of work around, remains to be seen, but it’s one to keep an eye on moving forwards nonetheless.
