Juventus have loaned forward Moise Kean again with an obligation to sign permanently following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Manchester United.
A statement from Juve said the club have agreed to a €7 million lease, which expires in 2023, from Everton and then a commitment to sign if Kean achieves several goals by the end of the 2022-23 season. The fee if the move is made permanent would initially be €28 million, payable over three years, plus a further €3 million in add-ons.
Kean began his career with Juve, becoming the club’s youngest-ever debutant in 2016, aged 16 years, eight months and 23 days. He was also the first player born in the 2000s to appear in both Serie A and the Champions League.

A statement from Juventus read: “Coming home.
“This is the perfect expression to describe Moise Kean’s official return from Everton to Juventus. The 21-year-old returns to the Club, where he not only took his first steps in professional football, but also where he grew up as a boy … and a player, within our youth sector.
“Moise is back and he comes on loan from us.”
Kean moved to Everton in 2019 as he found it difficult to get playing time as Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain offered competition on the attack. But after a disappointing campaign, he moved to Paris Saint-Germain on loan. He scored 17 goals for the Ligue 1 side, including a header in a 4-1 away to Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16.
The 21-year-old has capped nine times for Italy and was a surprise lockout for Roberto Mancini’s side who won Euro 2020 in the summer.
Kean won two Serie A titles and a Coppa Italia with Juve and a Coupe de France with PSG.
Juventus added: “Now he is back home and we are ready to welcome him back with great pleasure. Welcome back, Moise.”
