The final days of the transfer window are in turmoil as a chain of transfers are about to happen. Cristiano Ronaldo has set off the chain reaction with an indication to leave the Turin giants.
With the Portuguese submitting a transfer request, Manchester City is his most likely destination after they failed to land Harry Kane.
It's not been a picture-perfect relationship between Ronaldo and Juventus, and the club would not mind letting the five-time Ballon d'Or winner leave. A large strain on the club's resources would be free with the departure of Ronaldo.
Manchester City are now discussing with Cristiano Ronaldo over a potential move.
Ronaldo guarantees goals, and his departure will leave a gap in the team. Juventus want to fill that gap by bringing in a player who can bring a measure of goals.
It is hard to replace Ronaldo as Real Madrid found out following his departure, and the club is looking to reunite with Moise Kean.
Journalist Alfredo Pedulla claims that Everton have given Kean the go-ahead to return to Juventus this summer.
The former Juventus academy graduate is expected to join his former club on an initial loan with an obligation to buy for £21 million. The 21-year-old forward is said to be highly fancied by Massimiliano Allegri.
Moise Kean is not the only player on Juventus radar. They have other options on their list. The club hasntified Gabriel Jesus as an option, but Jesus may be a tall target as he is the only natural striker at Manchester City. Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca is another option.
Ronaldo has less than a year to run on his contract. Amid financial concerns, Juventus are keen to get him off their bill.
The Covid-19 pandemic has hit many clubs hard, including Juventus, who declared losses of £275 million this summer. The lack of funds has hindered their business in the transfer market.
Moise Keand at Juventus, where he played 16 times in three years, scoring seven goals in the process. He's had a roller-coaster career that has seen him go on loan to Verona, where he shipped in four goals in 19 appearances.
He joined Everton permanently, scoring twice in 32 games before joining PSG on loan in 2020. His PSG career saw him pitch in 13 goals in 26 appearances.
Kean is the youngest goal scorer for Italy in a competitive match.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are willing to take Ronaldo on a free transfer, if he accepts to take a pay cut.
