It has been reported that Juan Cuadrado has once again fallen in love with Italian football, as much as Italian football loves him. The Colombian international had a poor spell at Chelsea and was termed as a failure though one can argue he was not used to his full potential. After a poor time with the London club and Jose Mourinho, it was also being suggested that Cuadrado was just not good enough for the Premier League.
As per Turin newspaper Tuttosport, reigning Serie A champions Juventus are now trying to retain him after a difficult start to the current season and the 27-year-old winger can play a huge part in it. Further, Italy’s version of Goal.com has added that Cuadrado’s agent is now trying to sort out talks and make the switch a permanent one.
The Blues are trying to get €25m/£18.5m out of the deal though Juve would rather just pay a fee of €20m. The fact that Cuadrado is doing quite well will give Mourinho’s side the power to demand more and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is also keen on pushing a deal through, as soon as possible.
