“Juventus Activates Moise Kean’s £25m Transfer Option After Everton Star’s Early Red Card”
JUVENTUS have reportedly triggered the £25million option to sign Moise Kean from Everton just days after his 40 second red card shame.
The 23-year-old forward left the Turin club for the Premier League back in 2019.

However, the Italian international struggled at Everton and only scored twice in 32 top-flight appearances before he was first shipped out on loan to Paris Saint-Germain.
Kean was then returned to Juventus in August 2021 on a two-year loan deal which included an obligation to buy him for £25m.
Since then he has scored 10 Serie A goals in 55 appearances and his displays have already allegedly convinced the Turin side to sign him long-term.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano backed up an earlier claim from elsewhere by tweeting: “Moise Kean, no longer Everton player as Juventus have already triggered the buy option clause for €28m.
“Full agreement was already in place last year, Kean can be considered 100% Juve player as @romeoagresti reports.”
It comes after Kean was sent off 40 SECONDS after coming on for Juventus in Sunday’s 1-0 loss at Roma.
He kicked out wildly at matchwinner Gianluca Mancini 20 seconds after arriving in the 89th minute – and departed after another 20 seconds.
Kean, 23, had replaced Colombian wideman Juan Cuadrado as Juve piled on the pressure for an equaliser.
And that desperate last-ditch move from boss Max Allegri promptly became even more despairing.
Kean instantly saw red for lashing out at defender Mancini, who had cracked a stunning decider for Jose Mourinho’s Roma on 53 minutes.
Mancini seemed to drag the tumbling Kean in a bizarre tangle as Juventus attacked down the left.
The frontman responded by booting the home hero up the backside.
And although Mancini collapsed in ridiculous fashion, clutching his leg as if shot, Kean had to go.
He has since been hit with a £8,900 fine and received a two-game ban for the red.
