16-year-old Moise Kean is thought to be poised to sign his first professional contract with Juventus but Arsenal and Manchester City continue to be linked.
The youngster is currently on fire for Juve’s youth side with the Gunners and City reportedly ready to battle each other for his signature. However, there’s a catch. Kean’s agent is Mino Raiola – Paul Pogba’s broker. His clients include Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mario Balotelli and Romelu Lukaku.
Raiola believes that Kean will stay with Juventus, hailing the Serie A club and claiming that they’re above the rest. Well, if he’s talking about in Italy, that’s not exactly a revelation.
“Kean is the name to watch in 2017,” the Italian insisted, “and I’m not just saying that because I’m his agent.”
“He is only 16 years old, but his determination is just scary. He can become a big star at Juventus.
“Juve have done so much and are light years ahead of the rest. They are a unique phenomenon in Italy – it’s a nation of naysayers.
“This is the best-organised club and it’s no coincidence that for five years they’ve dominated Serie A.
“At Juve they all know what they have to do and they do it well.”
Raiola hasn’t exactly been complimentary of Arsenal in the past, particularly when it comes to transfer activity, and therefore, I don’t see him helping his client sign for us. Or City, for that matter.
However, he’s out there publicly trying to get Kean the best deal, that’s for sure. As he managed to get Juve £89m for Pogba, I’d say he’s more than capable.
