The future of Moise Kean is one that’s going to be talked about a lot during this summer transfer window.
The Juventus youngster established himself as one of the rising talents in Europe last season and has plenty of suitors as a result.
He currently has a year left on his contract so Juventus are pushing hard for renewal but the possibility of a departure remains.
In fact, Director of Football Marcel Brands was hoping his positive relationship with Fabio Paratici could get a deal over the line.
CalcioMercato cover Kean today and confirm Juventus want him to sign a new deal. They’ve offered the youngster a deal which would earn him €2.5m a year plus bonuses, and extend his contract at the club until 2024.
But while that deal is not signed, the possibility of a departure remains, although Juventus’ demands are making it difficult. So far there has been few offers with Everton’s €30m bid described as the ‘first concrete move’.
Tuttosport also have an update, saying that Kean is heading to Monte Carlo at the end of his holidays to meet his agent Mino Raiola, and is waiting to hear about his future.
Where that is remains to be seen but the fact Everton are the only concrete bidder and have started relatively high suggests they will continue to push hard to try and get Kean this summer.
Their hopes, though, seem to rest on that new contract. If Kean signs it, it seems unlikely he’ll be moving on permanently. If he doesn’t, Juventus are likely to pursue a deal that suits them, and Everton will be at the front of the queue.
