Juventus confirm Kean's return after disappointing Everton spell


Juventus have confirmed that Moise Kean has returned to the club, bringing to an end a disappointing stint with Everton. 


The Italian moved to the Toffees in 2019, yet struggled to adapt to English football, scoring just two goals and providing two assists in his debut campaign at Goodison Park. 


Kean spent the 2020/21 season on loan with Parisian giants PSG, where he fared better, netting 13 goals in Ligue 1. 



Juventus have since announced that the 21-year-old has moved back to Italy on a two-year loan day, which can be made permanent in 2023. 


"Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces that an agreement with Everton Football Club for the temporary acquisition, until 30 June 2023, of the registration rights of the player Moise Bioty Kean has been finalized for a consideration of €7m, of which €3m for sporting season 2021/2022 and €4m for sporting season 2022/2023," Juventus said in a press release. 


"The agreement entails the obligation for Juventus to definitely acquire the player’s registrations rights, subject to the achievement of certain given sporting objectives by the end of the season 2022/2023. The agreed consideration for the definitive acquisition is €28m, payable in three years. Furthermore, a maximum of €3m of cumulative bonuses are envisaged upon achievement of further sporting performance objectives." 


Kean scored six league goals in his final season with the Old Lady prior to his move to Everton, with a record of a goal every 89.2 minutes the best in Serie A in 2018/19.
