Moise Kean wants to stay at Juventus and develop as a player, according to his brother Giovanni.
The Juve teenager became the first player born in this millennium to play in Serie A and then the Champions League when he debuted in both competitions inside a week.
He’s yet to sign a pro contract, but speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy, his brother played down speculation linking him with a move.
Moise’s brother, Giovanni, told Gazzetta dello Sport: ‘Moise sacrifices, he is generous because Juve taught this to him.
‘They did it to make him become a beast and forged in the mind is the fact he is at the right club who will make him explode.
‘The Juve fans can rest assured that [Moise’s agent, Mino] Raiola does not want to take him away. Indeed, if he had wanted to, he would have already done so.
‘Maybe at the beginning Juve had not realised how strong he was. Then he only asked for a fair deal. It was found, and shortly he will sign the contract.’
Raiola, who has seen client Paul Pogba establish himself as a superstar at Juventus, is tipping his latest protege to reach the very top.
‘Kean is the name to watch in 2017, and I’m not just saying that because I’m his agent,’ the superagent said.
‘He is only 16 years old, but has this determination within him that is just scary. He can become a big star at Juventus.’
