The transfer of Everton striker Moise Kean to PSG depends on one condition.

Moise Kean moved to PSG in the summer transfer window and reinvented himself in Paris. The player who struggled to get a shot on target at Goodison is coring wonder goals at Parc des Princes. In 7 games for PSG, Kean has already outscored his Everton tally of 4 goals in 37 games.

PSG supporters and followers of Ligue 1 football have been thrilled to see Kean’s turn around of form and confidence in such a short span of time. It was no secret that the Italian was trying to secure a move away from Goodison citing lack of game time.

Even though Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti insisted that the 20 year old needs to remain patient and continue working on his skills, player’s agent, Mino Raiola, was engineering an exit with clubs like PSG and Juventus in the background.

Ultimately, Kean made a season long loan exit to Paris. His successful exploits in a short span of time at PSG has gotten PSG sporting director thinking about signing the Italian permanently. Leonardo admitted that there’s no option-to-buy clause in the loan deal. However, that has not demotivated him for pursuing a permanent deal next for Kean next summer.

Now, as per French football journalist Jonathan Johnson, there have already been discussions in the PSG hierarchy on ways to keep Kean. Since there’s buy clause, Everton have a major advantage and can demand a handsome sum of money as Kean’s stocks continues to rise, thanks to his all round performances in the Paris shirt. Whether PSG can pay an audacious price, as they carry that reputation, depends on one aspect: the COVID-19 situation.

"There have already been discussions about what PSG can do to keep Kean. But without that option to buy, the ball is much more in Everton’s court, although Kean is showing signs that he is already well established in Paris. It will depend on the situation with the Covid-19 and how quickly PSG can bring their supporters back to the stadium.Without that, PSG will continue to struggle financially. They’re already counting their losses because of the impact of COVID, and I don’t think it sounds very positive to pay a big compensation to keep it. This will help PSG to have a long relationship with Raiola, but if Kean continues to impress in the Champions League, his value will continue to rise.

It is very true that the biggest of the clubs have suffered massive damages due to COVID-19. PSG is one of the richest clubs backed by QSI (Qatar Sports Investments). Yet, having no fans in the stadium takes a toll on the club finances.

This is more of an eye opener for everyone. No club will be able to afford those £100 million transfers unless the COVID-19 subsides and the fans are allowed back in the stadiums. Ticket sales and season memberships account to a decent amount of income for a club but with no cash inflowing due to stadium closures, every club is taking a serious hit.

Coming back to Kean, he’s clearly enjoying playing in the Ligue 1 and if the Toffees are able to get more than what they invested in the Italian a year ago, it would be a win-win situation.
