Juan Cuadrado is reportedly on the brink of Juventus reunion on loan.

The Colombian spent last season with the Serie A outfit after failing to impress Jose Mourinho. Cuadrado was shipped out following his Chelsea move last January after making only 13 appearances.

And it appears Antonio Conte is yet to see the best of what he has to offer and that could see him head out on loan once more.

Italian publication TuttoSport suggests a deal is ‘very close’ with the Italian outfit keen on his return.

Conte had previously suggested Cuadrado was set to be part of his plans. Earlier reports claimed that he would return to Juventus on a permanent basis, but Conte, since appointed as Chelsea manager, has maintained that he wants him at Chelsea for next season. Talks of a move to AC Milan also surfaced recently.

The Italian had told fans last month that the player would feature under him, saying: “He’s in our squad, I’m very happy to have him and train him.

“I wanted him when I was a coach at Juventus and he will come back very soon and train and play with us. 

“Now, he’s a Chelsea player and he’ll stay with us. If something changes you’ll know.”

And it appears he has had a change of heart with Cuadrado now looking likely to return to the Serie A champions.

Cuadrado was left out of Conte’s squad in Chelsea’s Premier League opener against West Ham on Monday night.

Meanwhile, Milan reportedly wants to talk with Chelsea over a move for Cuadrado, with Rossoneri coach Vincenzo Montella keen to link up with the Colombia international having coached him at Fiorentina.

Cuadrado’s displays for Montella earned him a move to Chelsea in January 2015, only for him to then be sent on loan to Juventus last season.

Milan would like the player on loan for the 2016/17 campaign, paying £8.5million up front, before concluding a permanent deal next summer for a further £15m.
