Paris Saint Germain, director of football Leonardo, has said it is ‘very complicated’ to know if they will be able to sign Moise Kean from Everton permanently.
Kean is currently on loan with the French giants, having left Goodison temporarily in the summer after a disappointing first year on Merseyside.
He’s established himself as a key player under both Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino since, impressing in both Ligue and the Champions League and racking up 16 goals in 30 games in all competitions so far.
Unfortunately for PSG, his loan deal does not include a purchase option, with Everton having resisted any efforts from the French side to include one.
That means he’s set to return to Merseyside in the summer once his loan comes to an end, although whether he will remain at Everton beyond that remains to be seen.
PSG would certainly been interested in a permanent deal, and Leonardo has confirmed as much if the conditions were right.
“It’s hard to know; I think we’ll understand the situation better towards the end,” he told France Bleu.
“It was a choice, we couldn’t do otherwise than the loan, and I think that today, to have Kean for a year at our disposal was already something very positive.
“If we can glimpse the future under certain conditions, and we’ll see which ones, we’ll try and see how it goes.
“But today, it’s very complicated to know how it’s going to happen.”
