Before Carlo Ancelotti dropped a bombshell on the Everton fans about leaving Everton, one of the most talked about topics was the future of Moise Kean. The Italian left Everton last summer on loan because of lack of game time at the club in his first season.
At PSG, the 21 year old instantly flourished scoring goals for the Les Rouge et Bleu. Taking advantage of Mauro Icardi’s injury, Kean put up some strong performances which made it almost impossible to not have him in the starting lineup. PSG changed coaches with Thomas Tuchel sacked and Mauricio Pochettino taking over but Kean’s impact didn’t minimize.
The former Juventus man scored career-high of 17 goals in 41 outings for PSG. Before moving to Paris, Kean did play four games for the Toffees, netting two goals which takes his season tally to 19 goals.
Previously, the Toffees were reluctant to sell him but sighting a huge financial gain that could follow if a sale was made, the Merseyside club remained open to negotiate a sale. PSG were convinced and always wanted to sign the striker permanently but the Everton’s valuation was always a stumbling block.
PSG want another loan for Everton man Moise Kean
The price that Everton were demanding was around €45 million, something that PSG were hesitant to agree on keeping in mind the pandemic and the finances. PSG are aiming for a big summer and will have to spend wisely. The Parisiens have already started negotiating with the Toffees.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, PSG and Everton’s negotiations are on going and the Ligue 1 giants have proposed another loan instead of a permanent transfer. No bid has been made yet by PSG. However, the talks appear to be stalling because of the managerial situation at Goodison Park. The Royal Blues’ stance is that they want to have a new manager before deciding on Kean’s future.
Reports have already mentioned that the 21 year old is happy in Paris and wants to continue there but an agreement is yet not reached which makes the situation a bit tricky. Juventus are also in the background and have always been dreaming of reuniting with one of their own since last summer.
Everton will definitely want to wait until the appointment of a manager because the incoming manager may have a plan for Kean and he could be integrated into the starting lineup. Until the new boss decides what to do with Kean, the Toffees are right to keep the talks on hold.
