Carlo Ancelotti provides an update on Moise Kean’s Everton future
Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that Everton will not stand in the way of Moise Kean if he wants to make his temporary move to Paris Saint-Germain permanent.
The Italy international has been on loan at Parc des Princes since signing a one-season contract with PSG in October, and despite stellar competition for places, he appears to have made it home in the French capital.
Kean has started all but one of the club’s Ligue 1 games this season, scoring eight goals in the process.
The 20-year-old has already impressed new boss Mauricio Pochettino – scoring PSG’s first goal in the former Tottenham boss’s tenure – and Ancelotti insists Everton is open to making the move permanent if all parties involved agree.
“We have to look at the desire of the player first,” he said, as reported by The Guardian. “If the player wants to stay at PSG, then of course both clubs have to sit at the table to talk about it, and we are open to talking about it.
“The club are open to discussing whether PSG want to sign Moise Kean, who is doing really well at the moment.”
Another player whose future at Everton has been in question lately is Bernard. The midfielder has failed to consolidate his place in the Toffees’ starting XI since joining the club in 2018 and has only started two Premier League games this season.
Although the Brazilian is on the sidelines of the first team, Ancelotti claims the club are in no rush to sell the 28-year-old and the player himself as he has not indicated he wants to leave, despite the interest mentioned on the part of Serie A Roma. .
“If the player wants to stay here, we are not going to force him to leave,” he added. “So far he is happy to stay here. He hasn’t played a lot but he never came and said, ‘I want to go’ and we don’t want him to sell him. This is the situation at the moment. “
