Moise Kean's Dad Makes An Incredible Claim About What Juventus Owe Him
Players and their clubs often fall out, just look at Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid at the moment. But a club falling out with one of their player's parents over a bunch of tractors, that's a new one on us.
Usually when a player falls out with the club he's playing for it comes down to one of two things, either he wants to get paid or he wants to play more first team football.
Those two requests usually have to end up in one of a few outcomes. Either scenario can be solved by giving the player more money or by selling him to another club.
But what happens when a parent starts complaining that you haven't delivered what you promised?
Moises Kean became the first player born in 2000 to play for a club in Europe's top five leagues when he made his debut for Juventus last season but his future at the club is under threat because at younger than 18 he still needs his parents signature on his next contract.
In an interview with Tuttosport Biorou Kean claimed that the club owe him a fleet of tractors saying:
"Juventus offered a contract of €700,000-a-year, which was fine, but the problem is they had also promised me some tractors for my agricultural business in the Ivory Coast, but now they say there is no budget for them.
"I've got several hectares of land in the Ivory Coast which I would like to cultivate with rice and corn. I asked for this agricultural machinery and they told me there wouldn't be any problems, but now things have changed."
Kean played three Serie A games last season.
Of course as with any young player who shows promise and plays for such a big team early on in his career there is already interest in the teenager. Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal have all been linked with the Ivorian.

The player's father also revealed that he never gave permission for Mino Raiola to represent his son saying, "[Raiola] says that he is my son's agent, but the truth is we have never signed any agreement. In fact, if I were to choose, I would choose another agent"- presumably Jorge Mendes.
Of all the things the Old Lady would have done to keep a player you've got to think that tractors would be one of the strangest.
