UEFA Champions League runner-up and Italian Serie A champions Juventus FC are all set to make a move for Chelsea flop Juan Cuadrado in the days to come.
Juan Cuadrado who had joined the Blues in the January transfer window for £23.3 million (€32m) from Fiorentina has so far remained out of favour at the club and is being seen mostly on the bench. Jose Mourinho is yet to fit in the Colombian international into his plans and if reports are to be believed then Cuadrado might move out of Stamford Bridge soon.
Juventus have lost three key players in this transfer window. Andrea Pirlo left for MLS side New York City FC; Carlos Tevez joined his boyhood club Boca Juniors and Arturo Vidal was sold to Bayern Munich for a hefty amount.
The Old Lady in order to fill up the void in their squad are now reportedly eyeing a move for the out of favour Chelsea winger.
The Premier League champions were originally reluctant to accept anything other than a straight cash deal for the 27-year-old but they have now agreed to let Cuadrado depart on loan. The South American player’s agent, Alessandro Lucci, will apparently arrive in London in the next few days to try to secure his client a return to Italy.
Juan Cuadrado had played just 12 matches in Chelsea outfit last season and mostly remained on the bench. With Chelsea signing Pedro last week Cuadrado’s chances of making it into the starting lineup gets furthered narrowed.
