Juventus Target Tipped To Play Well Alongside Cristiano Ronaldo
Ex-Italy Under-21 manager, Gigi Di Biagio is adamant Moise Kean can easily play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and there would be no problems.
Ronaldo and Kean can blossom together in the same lineup, Di Biagio claims.
The Bianconeri are planning to re-sign the Everton striker, who is on loan at Paris Saint-Germain for this term.
Although one of the reasons he was sold to the English side last season was because Ronaldo was the main goal-scorer in Turin. Until now, the Portuguese has remained their most high-profile player and has been returning the goals in quite a good proportion.
Despite the Old Lady signing Alvaro Morata in the last transfer window, Cristiano Ronaldo remains the go-to man for goals and has scored more than the Spaniard.
On the other hand, Moise Kean might struggle to make an impact if he moves to Turin ahead of next season, though. But Di Biago is confident that he has the versatility to create space for himself in the team if he returns. The 49-year-old also rubbished claims the youngster had similar attitude problems like Mario Balotelli.
Gigi Di Biagio told La Gazzetta dello Sport via Calciomercato: “If I am surprised by his explosion? Not at all, I know him well and I expected him to follow exactly this path. Moise is a very good boy, good and available, who has a great desire to learn.

“It is not true that he has a difficult character, he can it seems strange that I say that in Under 21 I punished him, but it is the truth. Let’s dispel this false belief that he is the new Balotelli.
“He is a young and exuberant boy who needed to grow up. I think that the double experience abroad for him. has done very well.”
Then when quizzed if the youngster can play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, he replied: “Why not? He is not a classic central striker, like Morata, but like Dybala and Chiesa he is a player who knows how to turn and vary.
“He can play both the center forward and the winger, in both cases he tends to be very centralized. This flexibility is a great advantage: he knows how to play both in tight spaces and across the board.”
