Why Atletico Madrid abandoned their move for Juventus’ Moise Kean

Serie A side Juventus seemed certain that striker Moise Kean would join Atletico Madrid, but the Spanish side have now left the chase and the Italian seems likely to stay at Juve.

Alfredo Pedulla has provided details about the situation, with the move now all but off. Medicals were carried out yesterday and it was established through it that Kean’s tibia injury would take three weeks to cure. At that point, it became a question of the financials of the agreement.

But Diego Simeone decided against the signing and he spoke to the club’s higher-ups and the decision was a mutual one between them. Kean will now return to Italy and he will wait to see how his future unfolds. Fiorentina and Monza were interested in him and it remains to be seen if they return to sign him in the last few days of the transfer window, even if it was Kean himself who had decided to move abroad.
