'Why I Stopped My Son From Joining Man Utd'

The father of a Juventus star has revealed he stopped his son from joining Premier League outfit Manchester United a few years ago.
 
 
Moise Keane enjoyed a breakout season with the Serie A champions last campaign and has been touted as one for the future in Italian football.
 
Sky Sports News reported that 19-year-old striker is set leave the Old Lady for Everton after a fee of £27.5million was agreed this week.
 
The player's father, Biorou Jean Kean, has now revealed the striker was close to joining the Red Devils before he advised him to remain in Turin.
 
"I did stop his transfer at the time, his mother wanted to send him to Manchester [United]," he told Omnisport.
 
"I said no because I wanted him to stay at Juventus and keep learning. He was not mature enough yet. 
 
"To send a young boy abroad aged just 14-15 years old didn't convince me at that time."
