Raiola: 'Kean a big star for Juve'

Agent Mino Raiola trusts 16-year-old striker Moise Kean “can become a big star” at Juventus.

The forward’s numbers are astounding, because he has scored 21 goals in 10 games at Giovanissimi level, 14 in 15 matches for the Allievi Nazionali, 24 in 25 appearances for the Under-17 side and this season five in five competitive outings for the Primavera team.

“Kean is the name to watch in 2017, and I’m not just saying that because I’m his agent,” Raiola told the Corriere dello Sport.

“He is only 16 years old, but has this determination within him that is just scary. He can become a big star at Juventus.”

Kean could technically go abroad for a minimal fee, but it’s widely reported he will sign a three-year contract with Juve, his first professional deal.

While Raiola pushed for Paul Pogba to leave Turin, he has nothing but praise for the Bianconeri.

“Italy is a nation of naysayers, nobody ever comes out in your favour, even if in Italian football Juve have done so much and are light years ahead of the rest. They are a unique phenomenon in Italy.

“This is the best-organised club and it’s no coincidence that for five years they’ve dominated Serie A. The Bianconeri management is the best, starting from Andrea Agnelli, as I’ve never heard the President say a word out of place or invade someone else’s territory.

“At Juve they all know what they have to do and they do it well.”
