According to reports in Italian outlet Calciomercato, Serie A giants Juventus are confident of completing a loan deal for Juan Cuadrado in the next 48 hours  following successful negotiations with the player’s agent Alessandro Lucci.

The Colombia international, who joined Juve from Chelsea in August last year, scored four goals in 28 league matches last season to help the club to a Serie A and Coppa Italia double.

Cuadrado returned to Chelsea during the preseason where Chelsea boss Antonio Conte claimed that the player will be a part of his plans for this season.

“He will come back very soon and train and play with us… he’s a Chelsea player and he’ll stay with us,” Conte said last month.

However, it seems he has changed his mind now and Juventus chief Marotta  has claimed that the versatile playmaker is all set to return to Italy.

“Cuadrado is a player welcomed for various reasons. With us, he behaved well, our experience with him was extremely positive. It’s a question that will be resolved in the next couple of days max,” Marotta told Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Juve will reportedly pay 3.5 million euros up front and have agreed to buy the 28-year-old outright at the end of the season, with a fee for the permanent deal still to be agreed.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
