Everton striker Moise Kean is happy to return to Juventus this summer, but only if they manage to qualify for the Champions League.
That’s accord to Tuttosport, who say the Italian forward has set that as a requirement for him returning to his former club.
Kean, as you will be aware, has been shining on loan at Paris Saint Germain this season but is set to return to Everton at the end of it.
The French giants are keen to make the move a permanent one but don’t have an option to do so and will need to negotiate with the Toffees to make it happen.
In the interim, Juventus have emerged as another suitor, with it reported in Italy that they are keen to bring the striker back to the club.
That’s a move that Kean is reportedly happy to make, and several reports have made it clear he would do so even if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
Tuttosport say otherwise, though. They explain that without Champions League football, Juventus would have less money and struggle to convince several players to remain, chief among them Cristiano Ronaldo.
Some players, such as Alvaro Morata, would be happy with the Europa League, but ‘not everyone thinks like the former Real Madrid player’.
Kean is one such player. He would have ‘many more doubts’ than the Spaniard about the Europa League, particularly as he could play in the Champions League with PSG.
So while the idea of a return from Everton ‘intrigues’ him, he is more likely to go back to Paris than Turin if a place in Europe’s top table isn’t on offer.
