Juventus forward Moise Kean spent the 2020-21 season with Paris Saint-Germain, and the Italian international recently shared a glowing review of his time in the French capital.
Kean scored 17 goals and recorded one assist in 41 appearances in all competitions during his lone season in Paris. Additionally, the Italian was part of the squad that won the 2021 Coupe de France.
In an interview with DAZN, Kean reflected on adapting to a new environment. Additionally, he highlighted players that helped him transition into the squad, considering the 23-year-old arrived on the final day of the summer transfer window.
“PSG? My relatives live there (in Paris), so I felt at home,” Kean said. “Thanks also to my teammates, like Neymar, and Mbappé. I thought they wouldn’t count on me. I arrived on the last day of the transfer window.
“They explained to me how to play with them. There is also Di Maria. Even off the field, I had a very good relationship with them. I went to dinner with them, and that made me feel good.”

Kean arrived on a loan deal, but PSG didn’t initiate talks with Everton to keep the young player long-term. After leaving in 2021, Kean would return to Juventus on a two-year loan agreement from the Toffees.
Once the two years were up, the Serie A side decided to keep Kean, as he’s now under contract with the Old Lady until 2025.
