Serie A giant, Juventus, have announced the return of striker Moise Kean from Everton on a two-year loan deal following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Kean who spent last season on loan with Paris Saint Germain heads back to Turin on another loan deal worth 7m euros.

Sky Sports reports that there are add-ons in the deal worth 3m euros with the total agreement of the deal 38m euros.

Juve have also included in the deal, an obligation to buy the 21-year-old permanently for 28m euros.

Kean began his career in Juventus academy in 2010 and graduated from the youth team in the 2016/17 season, where he made his first team debut on 19 November 2016, in Juventus-Pescara.

The youngster became the first player born in the 2000s to take the field in Serie A.

Just a few months later, in Bologna, he scored his first goal at the age of 17 years and 88 days, to become Juve's second youngest scorer in the league, after Renato Buso (16 years and 304 days) in 1986. Not only that: that goal proved to be the first scored by a player born in 2000s in Europe’s Top 5 leagues.

Moise then moved across to Verona for the 2017/18 season, where he scored four goals in the league, and after another year in Turin, he said goodbye to Juve at the end of the 2018/19 season, in which he played 13 games and scored six goals in the league and one in the Italian Cup. He left with four trophies won, two Scudetti, an Italian Super Cup and an Italian Cup.

After a year at Everton, he joined Paris Saint-Germain last season on loan, where he went on to score 17 goals between Ligue1 (13), Coupe de France and Champions League (three in this competition).

Kean is the second-youngest player to reach double-digit goals in Europe’s top-five leagues, behind only Erling Haaland, while he was also able to add the French Super Cup and a National Cup to his cabinet of accolades, Juve said.
