Chelsea one step closer to completing their first transfer this summer
Juventus are in talks with Chelsea about the possibility of signing winger Juan Cuadrado, on a permanent basis. The winger who was signed by Jose Mourinho failed to shine in the Premiership and had to be loaned back to the Italian league where he was signed from.
Cuadrado has been in great form for the Old Lady, he signed a three year loan deal, and does not seem to want a return to Stanford Bridge.
In what would be Chelsea’s first major transfer action, they are set to sanction the move. Cuadrado currently earns around £50,000 per week and would expect Juventus to increase that amount in their new deal.
Chelsea are planning to strengthen their team in all departments this summer and a transfer fee from Juventus would aid their cause.
The player is valued at around £25 Million, but Juventus are confident they would snap him for a fee of about £20 Million.
Cuadrado does not want return to the Premier League, the player has admitted in the past that the few months he spent with Chelsea were one of the toughest of his career.
