His rise has made him a reported transfer target of a host of Premier League clubs, and his dad, Biorou, says the teenager may leave the Serie A champions because the club have failed to deliver him a fleet of tractors.

He told Tuttosport: "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 own several hectares of land in the Ivory Coast which I would like to cultivate with rice and corn. I'm an agronomist. I asked for agricultural materials and they told me "no problem".

"However, the other day, Juve's lawyer contacted me to tell me that the contract offer had been revoked because my requests were out of their means."

Because Kean is 17, any representation would require his father's signature. Biorou insists his son is not represented by the super agent Mino Raiola, who has Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli on his books.

He added: "Once Moise becomes an adult, Juve are likely to lose him for nothing if he doesn't sign a contract soon.

"[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."
