Juventus have confirmed the arrival of Everton striker Moise Kean in a double statement, also revealing a financial blow following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.
Manchester United have re-signed Ronaldo due to his desire to find a new challenge. He had made an impression in Turin – as at the other periods in his career – but he decided to move on. Despite Manchester City looking like the favorites for the 36-year-old, the Red Devils came in for their former star.
However, due to the move, Juve is looking for a replacement. Kean has turned out to be an important summer goal following his move to Everton in the summer of 2019.
Indeed, the attacker struggled to fit into Goodison Park and was loaned out to Paris Saint-Germain last season.
In a statement, Juve revealed the two-year loan for Kean, worth €7million (£6million) with a commitment to buy.
Their statement (via Target) read: “Juventus Football Club announce it has reached an agreement with Everton for the temporary acquisition, until June 30, 2023, of player Moise Kean.
“The agreement provides for Juventus’ obligation to definitively acquire the right to the player upon the achievement of certain sporting objectives in the 2022-23 season.
“The agreed fee for the acquisition is € 28m [£24million]payable in three financial years. In addition, cumulative bonuses of up to €3 million for achieving further targets.”
Juve announced Ronaldo’s departure in a separate statement on Tuesday morning.
The club also revealed that they have suffered a financial blow from the sale of the Portuguese international.
They said: “This operation generates a negative economic impact of approximately €14 million ([£12million] to the fiscal year 2020/2021 as a result of the partial amortization of the net book value of the player’s registration rights.”
Ronaldo contributes to a thrilling attack from United, which includes Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho.
Ronaldo’s farewell message Juventus
Ronaldo spoke last week when he signed a deal with United and sent a heartfelt message to Juventus.
He said: “Today I am leaving a great club, the biggest in Italy and certainly one of the biggest in all of Europe,
“I gave my heart and soul for Juventus and I will always love the city of Turin until my last days. The “tifosi bianconeri” have always respected me and I tried to thank that respect by fighting for them in every game, every season, every league.
“Eventually we can all look back and realize that we achieved great things, not everything we wanted, but still we wrote a pretty nice story together.”
