- Juventus reportedly want Everton striker Moise Kean. redraw
- Reports in Italy suggest Juve want to loan him with an obligation to buy
- Everton would be happy with a loan paid and will let the Italian leave
- The news comes hours after the shocking news that Ronaldo wants to leave Juve
Juventus are reportedly exploring the possibility of reuniting with Moise Kean as they brace for Cristiano Ronaldo’s shocking departure in the summer.
Sportsmail understands that Manchester City are in talks with Ronaldo’s agent about a late transfer for the Juventus man after Pep Guardiola’s side failed in a transfer for Harry Kane.
Should Ronaldo seal a shocking departure from Turin, it would open the door for Everton striker Kean to return to Juve, where he made it through the academy before completing a £27.5million transfer to the Toffees in 2019.
Juventus reportedly wants to loan Everton striker Moise Kean again this summer
According to the Italian news channel SportsItaliaEverton have given Kean the green light to rejoin Juventus this summer.
The report further suggests the purchase commitment would be around £21 million (€25 million), with Massimiliano Allegri being a fan of the 21-year-old attacker.
While Juventus also have other notable options on their wish list, including Gabriel Jesus and Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca, it looks like their main talisman attacker is hanging on the wall.

The move to Kean comes after Ronaldo reportedly told Juve he no longer wanted to pay for the club and wanted to return to Manchester.
City are open to a free transfer of the 37-year-old if Juve drop their £25million demand and Ronaldo accept a £500,000-a-week cut in his salary.
And according to Sky Sports ItalyRonaldo will not be available for the Old Lady against Empoli this weekend after clearing his belongings from the club’s training ground in a bid to force a transfer to City.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is keen to leave Turin, where he still has a 10-month contract, while Juventus are looking to take Ronaldo off his wages amid financial concerns at the club.

The Old Lady announced a £275m loss due to the coronavirus pandemic earlier this summer and their transfer market activity has been curtailed by this shortage of funds.
Premier League champions City were offered the Manchester United legend by the player’s agent Jorge Mendes last week, but the spectacular deal only became a possibility when they called off their hunt for Kane.
City have not committed themselves to a transfer for Ronaldo, who turns 37 in February, and it is clear there is no agreement yet with Juventus or the player.
PSG could still appear as an option for Ronaldo – alongside Messi and Neymar – if French club Kylian Mbappe sells after he was the subject of an improved £155m bid from Real Madrid on Thursday.

But Mendes is struggling to find other European clubs that can afford his client, now that the season has started and most of the rosters are in place.
Ronaldo was signed by Juventus for £100 million in the summer of 2018 with the Portuguese forward looking to help the Italian giants win the Champions League after the 36-year-old won four at Real Madrid.
However, the five-time Ballon D’Or winner has failed to lead Europe’s most exclusive club trophy to Turin, with City reaching the final last season, losing only to Chelsea.
