For multiple transfer windows, there have been rumors about Moise Kean coming back to Juventus. It was a little odd considering that it didn’t come all that long after Juventus sold that same Kean, still very much the jewel of the club’s youth setup, to Everton in the summer of 2019 much to a lot of supporters’ chagrin.
Two years after he left, Kean is back.
Juventus announced Tuesday morning that the 21-year-old Kean has made the move from Everton to Turin on an initial two-year loan deal that will cost the club a total of €7 million over those two seasons. On top of that, Juventus has acquired Kean — who underwent his medical exams on Sunday — on loan with an obligation to buy subject to certain sporting objectives, which will cost the club €28 million plus another €3 million in add-ons come the summer of 2023.
The complete details of the Kean deal are as follows from Juve’s press release:
Turin, 31 august 2021 - 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 € 7.0 million, of which € 3.0 million for sporting season 2021/2022 and € 4.0 million for sporting season 2022/2023.
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 € 28.0 million, payable in three years.
Furthermore, a maximum of € 3.0 million of cumulative bonuses are envisaged upon achievement of further sporting performance objectives
It’s time to dance. Moise wants to dance, so let’s dance.
Kean had an eventual two-year tenure with Everton even if he didn’t appear in many games with the Merseyside club. His most successful stint was when he was technically a Paris Saint-Germain player last season, heading to the French capital on loan after barely playing at all during the 2019-20 Premier League season. Kean scored 13 goals in Ligue 1 last season, appearing in 26 games (22 starts) total.
Juventus sold Kean to Everton two summers ago for a €27.5 million transfer fee.
As Juve’s announcement concludes: “Now he is back home, and we are ready to welcome him back with great pleasure! Welcome back, Moise!” You damn right where are ready.
