Key Chiellini ‘entrance test’ took Kean to Juventus from Everton

A chat with Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini has proved key for Moise Kean to return to the Bianconeri from Juventus.

La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that Chiellini’s role has been ‘decisive’ in this move and the Italian was told by Massimiliano Allegri to talk to the young striker. It was almost like an ‘entrance test’ for his Juve return because when he first left Juve in 2019, there had been question marks about the player’s attitude. Many at the club didn’t believe that he was going to make the step up.

But the ‘interview’ with Chiellini showed that Kean is very intent on making a mark at the Old Lady again and Juve are ready to have him back at the club. The chat with Kean convinced the club and Chiellini that Kean was going to be a good signing for the side.
