It’s February 10, 2021 and Moise Kean has just scored the third for Paris Saint-Germain at Barcelona, making it 3-1 after goals from Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi in a Champions League knockout clash.
Fast forward six months and the same player is getting sent off for Everton at Huddersfield in an EFL Cup match at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The Italy striker, 21, has endured a nightmare since joining the Toffees in 2019 – and it reached new lows on Tuesday night.
Kean got himself involved in an off-the-ball scrap with Huddersfield winger Sorba Thomas and duly got his marching orders from the referee.
It represents a dramatic turn of events and the former Juventus striker would not mind if that’s the last time he plays for the Toffees, with PSG and Inter Milan thought to be monitoring his situation.
However, with Everton determined to recoup a significant portion of the £25million paid just two years ago, the Italian could find himself stuck at Goodison Park unless another loan can be agreed.
Just three months ago, Kean found himself sandwiched by the world’s two most expensive players in Mbappe and Neymar, scoring 16 goals in 32 matches during a prolific loan spell at PSG.
Three of those goals came in the Champions League, but the EFL Cup hasn’t been quite so kind to Kean.
