• Juventus has set its sights on Everton star Moises Kean, who is currently on loan at Paris Saint-Germain
  • Kean is touted to be Cristiano Ronaldo's possible successor at Juve
  • Ronaldo has been linked to a return to one of his former clubs

With Cristiano Ronaldo being linked to a move away from Turin, Juventus has identified a potential replacement.

Ronaldo’s current contract with Juventus is set to expire next year. However, his future with the reigning Serie A champions has become uncertain with rumors swirling he is likely to part ways with the Italian side.

Ahead of Ronaldo’s looming exit, Juventus is now considering re-signing its former striker Moises Kean, an Everton star who is currently on loan at Paris Saint-Germain, Italian outlet Tutto Juve reported.

According to the report, the Old Lady is willing to make an enticing players-plus-cash offer to Everton in exchange for Kean’s services at the end of the season.

Even more interesting, it was noted that Kean has been viewed by Juventus as a credible successor for Ronaldo, having been impressive in his loan debut season at Ligue 1.

The report added that Juventus would be open to deal either Aaron Ramsey or Douglas Costa for the 21-year-old.

Kean played a total of three and a half seasons with Juventus before joining Everton in 2019. However, the youngster failed to make an impact on the English Premier League side, scoring only two goals in 29 appearances.

The Italian forward has found life in Paris Saint-Germain as a loanee. To date, Kean has already bagged a whopping 15 goals in 28 games for the reigning French top-flight champions.

Ronaldo, on the other hand, has been rumored to make an epic return to his former club Real Madrid.

Recent reports from Spain state that Los Blancos are considering a one-year contract for their former talisman for a "symbolic price.”

Adding a twist to the said rumors, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane recently told Sky Italia that the murmurs might be “true.”

"Rumours are true? Yes, it could be,” Zidane said of Ronaldo’s rumored return to Real Madrid. “We know Cristiano, we know what he has done for Real Madrid, but now he is a Juve player, he is playing with another team. We'll see what his future will be."

Ronaldo’s former teammate and Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, meanwhile, has also expressed his strong desire to sign the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

“There are a few players I’ve played with that I’d love to have in my team, of course,” Solskjaer said during a Q&A session on Man United's official website. “I’d love the player Roy Keane, I’m not sure if I could manage him though!”

“I’d sign him every day of the week, Roy was so influential but then again, I played with Cristiano [Ronaldo] and he’s been the best player in the world alongside [Lionel] Messi for the past 10 to 15 years now, so Cristiano,” he continued. “You’d take him in your team, for sure.”
