After Arthur Vermeeren, Moise Kean also had to strengthen the ranks of Atlético Madrid. However, the Italian striker made a fruitless trip to Spain.

Kean made a splash at Juventus a few years ago by immediately scoring goals for the Old Lady as a teenager. A great future was predicted for him, but the still only 21-year-old striker did not make a real breakthrough for the time being.

Everton paid 27.5 million for Kean in 2019, who scored just four times and mainly made the news with a substitute appearance just a few minutes later. Things went better on loan at PSG, with 17 goals in 41 appearances, after which Juventus came knocking again after the sudden (and late in the transfer market) departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. The return of the youth product cost the Italian record champion 37 million.

This season, however, Kean has zero goals and assists in twelve appearances. Due to the rise of top talent Kenan Yildiz, he has fallen far down the pecking order of trainer Max Allegri and so Kean was allowed to leave this winter. Atlético came knocking and everything seemed to be in order for a six-month loan. Cost: half a million. Everyone is happy, because Atlético – which would also pay Kean’s salary – wanted to accommodate a potential departure of Ángel Correa.

He sat in the stands of the Wandametropolitano for the league match against Valencia, where Vermeeren was on the bench for the Rojiblancos for the first time, and had a chat with coach Diego Simeone.

But then came the medical tests… Kean is struggling with his shin and last played on December 8. According to Juventus, the striker could play football again at the beginning of February, but according to Atlético, Kean would be sidelined for another month. Too long a period according to the Spanish club, which subsequently blew up the deal. Kean disappointedly traveled again to Turin, where he landed in the snow. The 23-year-old attacker will remain (on the bench) at Juventus for at least another six months…
