Juventus and Atletico Madrid Iron Out Expected Deal

Juventus and Atletico Madrid have reached an agreement about the loan of Moise Kean. The striker will take the medicals next Monday. The Colchoneros won’t necessarily wait for the departure of one of their forwards. Other teams, for instance, Bayer Leverkusen, were starting to poke around, Calciomercato informs.

The Bianconeri will cash in €500k as a fee. The formula won’t envisage an option to buy, so he’ll be back in Turin at the end of the campaign. He makes €2.5M annually. The deal will generate €1.5M in profits.

Kean will seek a bigger role at Atletico Madrid than the one he has had at Juventus so far. Even once recovered from a lower leg injury, he would have been fifth in the pecking order behind Dusan Vlahovic, Federico Chiesa, Arkadiusz Milik, and Kenan Yildiz.

The Spanish side might part ways with either Angel Correa or Memphis Depay. Moreover, they have both been injury-prone this season. The Italian striker has logged 12 appearances for a total of 472 minutes, failing to score.

He’s pining for more game time to have a better chance of being called up by Luciano Spalletti for Euro 2024. He won’t extend his contract before leaving even though it expires in 2025.

Our Take on Kean, Juventus, and Atletico Madrid

It’s a good move for everybody involved. No Azzurri striker has grabbed the brass right so far, so he still has a shot. If he fares decently, a permanent departure could be in the cards in the summer.
