Moise Kean Everton verdict revealed after Juventus board exodus overnight
Sources close to the Liverpool Echo have revealed that the seismic board changes at Juventus won’t affect any deal in place for Moise Kean to leave Everton next summer.
On 28 November 2022 the board of Juventus including president Andrea Agnelli and vice-president Pavel Nedved, all resigned from the Turin club.
The report claims that “sources” have confirmed that there is no impact on the contractual agreement in place with Juventus that relates to the signing of Kean.
“Sources have confirmed that there is no impact on the nature of that contractual obligation despite the major overhaul of the board of directors, with the Italian side set to appoint a new board by the end of January,” as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
“The £24m was understood to be payable over a three-year period from the date Kean rejoined Juventus.
“The only way that Everton would be materially impacted would be if Juventus as a club folded, where Everton would become just another creditor.”

It’s a lucky escape here for Everton, who could have easily been burdened with the out-of-form forward for the foreseeable.
There had been some claims that Juventus would look to offload the Italian forward as soon as they paid Everton for him.
Fortunately, there seems to be no real scenario where Kean would return to Goodison Park, even though the Blues desperately need a forward, he isn’t the man to do so.
A £24m fee will have to be paid to Everton at the end of the loan deal, one that Juve are contractually bound to.
This will be handy for this summer’s transfer window and will provide the Toffees with a slight cash influx to put towards new signings.
Whoever Everton does sign to solve their forward woes, they can’t do much worse of a job than Kean did, hopefully, that isn’t tempting fate too much.
At Goodison Park, there’s always a chance.
