Robinson stunned by Everton's 'crazy' Kean price tag amid Benitez dilemma
It would be “incredible” if Everton can recoup £38million for Moise Kean.
That is according to ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Fabrizio Romano tweeted on 1st July that Rafael Benitez will have the final stay on the striker’s Goodison future.
The transfer guru claims that Paris Saint-Germain want to re-sign the 21-year-old on loan with an option to buy.
Romano reported in an earlier tweet from 1st July that Everton will demand £38m for the striker who spent 2020-21 on loan at Parc de Princes.
Kean signed a five-year deal with Everton when he joined from Juventus in a £25.1m switch in August 2019.
Robinson was blown away by the Toffees’ reported valuation of the striker who has netted just four times in 37 appearances on Merseyside.

“That’s incredible, crazy money,” he told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.
“He’s a player that I liked when he came in from Juve, one that I thought could have had a real impact at Everton.
“I think it’s his attitude and behaviour off the field that have really cost him.
“But if he’s not gonna fit in at Everton and it turns out the manager doesn’t want him, what can you do?
“If they can negotiate a deal like £38m, that’s what’s commonly known as a ‘no-brainer’.“
Kean hit the back of the net 17 times in 43 appearances for PSG last term.
He was part of the side that relinquished its grip on the Ligue 1 title after a decade of dominance.
